Naomi Wachira was born and raised in a musical family in a small town called Kijabe, which is located on the
Kenyan Great Rift Valley. At age 5 she joined her parents’ choir, which spurred her love affair with music as a way
to not only understand the world, but also express her introverted self. Through age and a myriad of life
experiences, Naomi has developed a songwriting style that is simple and evocative, delivered with sincerity.
Drawing inspiration from artists such as Tracy Chapman and Miriam Makeba, she blends elements of African
rhythm, American folk, and soul, offering her take on issues affecting society and telling her story as an African
woman living in the diaspora. Her mission as an artist remains simple… to write music that is applicable to anyone
regardless of their education, beliefs, or socio-economic status.
