Bio

Nomi began her studio work and songwriting at the age of 12. Not yet having her hands on the proper production team and not satisfied with mediocre production, she worked off of samples from the heavily influential streets of her hometown, Brooklyn, New York. Her love for Hip-hop was born. Over time she has sharpened her singing and songwriting skills, developing her signature sound of melodically flowing over loops fit for any emcee.
She began collaborating with hip hop production teams from New York to Miami in her first attempts to create original material. She took a break in the summer of '01 to become the lead singer of an underground UK pop group the Speed Angels. Her break from New York and work with Oasis' producer Owen Morris gave her an influential serving of the UK sound. She grew a love for bands such as Portishead and Depeche Mode. When returning to New York she dove right into Hip-Hop's Underground in search of a sound that deviated from top 40 commercial Hip-Hop and R&B. She sought out producers with these same influences who were willing to combine these genres with her soulful style. Her collaborations with hip hop's underground is the basis of her debut album. Gritty hip hop beats, dark melodies and deep, dreamy, soulful vocals reminiscent of Sade and Mary J. Blige with a hint of old school New York freestyle are the ingredients that make up Nomi's sound. She crosses Hip Hop, R&B, and Soul markets.
