She is a member of the Recording Academy and the Soho House, where she is the co-lead for the West Hollywood chapter’s Women in Music Club. She is also on the Board of Advisors for the Environmental Film Festival based in Washington, DC, where she is the youngest on the council.

in the news

“Who? Otherworldly singer-songwriter residing on Earth. Washington, D.C. to be exact. Why? On her first single, the smooth, swaying “Wolf and I,” Naïmah’s voice flows effortlessly over a lush arrangement of synths, trappy hi-hats and crystal clear acoustic guitar. Drawing comparisons to the likes of Lorde and Bat for Lashes, this has Next Big Thing written all over it.”

- When the Gramophone Rings
“It’s rare today to come across a stunning talent who also displays humility. With a personality as sweet as her music – Naïmah is an Icon in-waiting.”

- Going Solo
“The main highlight is really Naïmah’s voice — which has a distinctly ethereal quality without sacrificing power. Par excellence.”

- Fresh New Tracks

With a name that means comfort, peace, and tranquility, the power of Naïmah’s music comes as no surprise.
