This show is now taking place at Oslo.
London-based singer/songwriter Marie Naffah joins the dots between Florence and The Machine and Aretha Franklin via insightful wordplay inspired by musical poets like Leonard Cohen and Alex Turner. The product is a sound and groove that’s entirely her own: captivating lyricism wrapped in a soaring delivery that manages to straddle the line between timeless and contemporary.
Marie Naffah was named MTV’s Unsigned Artist of the Year before even releasing her first song. Now one EP in, she has done more than most: from delivering her own TED Talk and touring the US to scoring a movie for the BFI Female Film Festival. Her recent string of sold-out London shows included iconic venues such as Omeara, The Lexington, Camden Assembly and Ronnie Scott’s.
Her debut EP ‘Golden State’ was released in April 2020 via Frictionless Music, garnering support from BBC Introducing, CLASH Magazine and The Independent.
For her latest project, ‘50/50: For the Love of Live’ Marie played 50 gigs in 50 days from 21st June to celebrate the return of live music after the pandemic. Since then has been selected as one of NME’s ‘Big 10’, naming her as the artist to watch in the post-pandemic industry.
Naffah is an artist on a roll currently working on her second EP. —
