    Self-recording, Celebrations and Faith with Naomi Kimpenu

    Self-recording, Celebrations and Faith with Naomi Kimpenu

    Naomi Kimpenu is one of the most exciting singer-songwriters to emerge this Autumn. With ballads which combine beautiful melodies with soulful vocals, her decision to put an EP out this year, came following many years of development and exploration. As a self-proclaimed perfectionist, Naomi made the decision to record and produce the project herself selecting Blue May to mix the records. Here she shares that journey and decision making process with Lex, as well as looking ahead to collaborating for the next phase of her output as an artist.

    What Nelly Furtado Taught Me About An Artist's Evolution

    What Nelly Furtado Taught Me About An Artist's Evolution

    An artist who’s breakthrough album landed her a grammy and a world tour, alongside U2. An artist who’s worked with Timbaland, Salaam Remi and Pharrell Williams, and who writes 99% of her own songs. 
    With huge accolades to her name, the thing I wanted to understand by looking at Nelly Furtado, is how she’s morphed and transformed so much throughout her career. With an unconventional sound and a consistent gravitational pull towards worldly sounds which are quite hard to really describe Nelly surprised many with the scale of her success. Now 15years after the release of I’m like a bird… this is a lesson in an artists evolution. By Nelly Furtado.

    This week I’m looking at one of the music industry’s darlings. A superstar, known for her ability on the piano as much as with the vocal chords. Often considered a prodigy for what she achieved so young, Alicia had to navigate the industries challenges like everyone else, to forge what has been a career of consistency and longevity.
