Naomi exploded onto the scene with the dance single "Let You Go" in 2013. Signed to Sleazy Deep Records, the song was played in Europe and featured on an Ibiza compilation album of that same year.
She began recording her debut ‘Intuition’ in 2016, whose tracks were picked up by BBC Introducing, Shoreditch Radio and Future Radio. Her single Dream Lover reached the semi-finals of the UK Songwriting Contest 2016; she was Regional Finalist in Open Mic UK 2016 and finalist in the East Anglia Music Talent Awards 2017. She has performed for the Norwich Arts Centre, Grapevine at the Guildhall, The Voice, Open Mic UK, Norwich Sound and Vision Festival, and a host of local events.
"Dream Lover, so good, I kept dancing round the office when I heard it" Jay Lawrence, BBC Introducing
"Dance of Life is another level" Gary Standley, BBC
"Ethereal yet powerful Naomi Sutherland’s voice is out of this world. With her haunting melodies and beautiful lyrics, this is an artist destined to be huge." Tasha Smith - The New Music Show on Shoreditch Radio
"I had the pleasure of listening to Naomi’s debut release. I found her enchanting voice, bewitching lyrics and artistic intensity really compelling. I still want to make her next record! She’s all heart & soul!" Steve Greenwell (producer for Joss Stone)
Naomi was then invited to host her own music night at leading nightclub Gonzo's Two Room in Norwich. Named Eclectica, it showcases a range of talent from the city and surrounding areas, themed each month. Working with a team of local talent and collaborators she named her next EP Eclectica, The Collaborative EP. It features an eclectic mix of styles and serves as the precursor to her debut album, which tells the story of how she lost her voice as a teenager and found it again in the most unexpected way.
Naomi Sutherland's debut EP, produced by Thomas Peters (Matt Cardle), mixed by Darryl Neudorf (Neko Case, Sarah McLachlan) and mastered by Peter J Moore (Joni Mitchell), is a haunting rendition of lyrically complex alternative pop songs. Haunting, magical and passionate, she combines electronic beats, strings and choral backing vocals to deliver a rich and edgy twist on indie pop. She was a semi-finalist in the UK Songwriting Contest, regional finalist in Open Mic UK, finalist in the East Anglia Music Talent Awards, and had her songs played on BBC Introducing, Future Radio, with a live set on Shoreditch Radio.
