Dans la lignée d’Aluna George, FKA Twigs ou encore SZA, NAO, chanteuse britannique mélangeant habilement électro et soul,  s’est fait connaître grâce à son titre « So Good », en duo avec A.K Paul.

Le premier EP de la londonienne So Good est disponible depuis le début d’année 2015. So Good  comporte six chansons produites par Loxe, A.K Paul, William Arcane et John Calvert, ce qui donne à chacune d’entre-elle un son unique et différent, entre disco des années 70 et R&B des années 80. La seule constante reste la voix soul de Nao.

Son dernir album ‘Another Lifetime’ est sorti en juin 2018.


Born Neo Jessica Joshua, as a child Nao moved with her family from Nottingham to south Woodford, which borders London and Essex. Living on the cusp of the capital meant she had all the possibilities of it at her reach.

Learning piano as a youngster gave Nao a head-start. Ditching legal studies, she enrolled at Guildhall School of Music and Drama, a prestige college known for harnessing the talents of young music prodigies (everyone from The Beatles’ producer George Martin to BAFTA winner Mica Levi are Guildhall alumnis).

This led to the release of her first project So Good in 2015, which comprised four experimental and challenging pop heaters, its title track a collaboration with A. K. Paul — brother of genre-hopping enigma, Jai.

Two years later, Nao released For All We Know via Little Tokyo, but now licensed to Sony subsidiary RCA, co-penning songs with the likes of JUNGLE, and reuniting with A. K. Across a sprawling 18 tracks, the album is a triumph of future-pop possibility, honoured by a Brit nomination for Best British Female Solo Artist later that year.
