20 year old singer/songwriter, Marie Naffah, is described to be the “cream of the crop talent” and “one to watch” having played a number of high profile gigs in and around such as The Troubadour, The Camden Barfly, St Pancras Old Church, The Brixton Jamm, supporting Two Door Cinema Club, as well as The Rescue Rooms Nottingham, supporting Rae Morris. Furthermore, in 2012, she has played gigs in Edinburgh, Leeds, Sheffield, Paris, Italy and South America.
I introduced her as one of the Ones To Watch back in 2011 and her music that she produces never fails to disappoint. If you like your Folk music (i.e Laura Marling, Rae Morris) then you will love the material Naffah comes out with.
There is a brand new track by Marie called Winter, Go Easy On Me which is a complete cracker. This has been superbly written and Naffah’s vocals are top notch. Like all her material this song fits in the Folk field and I especially like the fact it is completely Acoustic. Just by listening to this tune I can see traces of Rae Morris and Nizlopi.
This is definitely promising and I look forward to hearing more material from this exceptional artist. Marie is a superb singer/ songwriter and has more astonishing material under her belt. Just go to YouTube type Marie Naffah and presented to you would be a host of tunes performed by Marie. One being an incredible composition of hers called Blindfold where she is infact blindfolded playing the guitar and singing at the same time.
Friday 1st March sees Marie play the ‘One’s to Watch’ Showcase at the O2 Academy 2 Islington (it is the smaller venue which is located on the 2nd floor).
