Naomi Wachira

Lauded in 2013 as Best Folk Singer in Seattle, Naomi Wachira is an artist of formidable talent and heart.  Seattle Music Insider raves her performances as "marked by her strong stage presence, storytelling and enduring smile." Wachira's voice is a melding of rich sources from her childhood in Kenya, her Northwest home, and such American inspirations as Tracy Chapman and South African activist Miriam Makeba.  Her music & songwriting brings together harmonies that speak across continents and cultures. She is currently recording her sophomore album "Song of Lament" at London Bridge Studio in Seattle, WA with Producer Eric Lilavois (Saint Motel, My Chemical Romance, Atlas Genius, Surfer Blood, and The Dustbowl Revival).
