Noya Rao

awfKXadjTvM

Line-up: OLIVIA BHATTACHARJEE vocals; TOM HENRY keyboards; LUKE WYNTER bass; MATT DAVIES drums

Since the release of their debut album Icaros, and subsequent EP Owls, Leeds-based electronic-soul quartet, Noya Rao have been noted as one of the rising talents of the UK Jazz scene. 
The group garnered early support from Gilles Peterson, enjoyed radio play from Mary Anne Hobbs & Jamie Cullum and have appeared on Worldwide fm.
Noya Rao are vocalist Olivia Bhattacharjee, drummer Matt Davies, bassist Luke Wynter and keys player & producer Tom Henry. The band draws upon influences old and new, combining a vintage aesthetic with contemporary song writing.
A fixation on the analogue aesthetic, their exploration of analogue synthesisers blended with an acoustic continuum of vocals and drums results in a genre-defying repertory of upbeat movers, introspective slow jams and sumptuous soundscapes.
Noya Rao continue to take their finely-tuned live show nationally and internationally having played at The Great Escape, Jazz Re:freshed Brighton, the Gondwana 10 events at the Roundhouse (London), AB (Brussels), the Sage (Gateshead) and Unit (Tokyo). 
Selected by Jazz re:freshed as one of six emerging UK Jazz talents, Noya Rao will showcase at SXSW, Austin this spring, with new music set for release early 2020.
