NAO has been one of my favorite discoveries in the past 6-months. Her sound is the ultimate foundation of Sonic Selects, Hip-Hop, R&B, and Jazz with a funky electronic vibe – making for an infectious listening experience.

I was hooked on NAO’s sound when I heard “Bad Blood” for the first time. With beat steadily building over her silky-smooth vocals, the 0:42-second mark is when the song switches into another gear.

NAO is one of a few artists who I can play over and over again and every time I listen to her it feels like a new experience.
