Adelaide based singer-songwriter Naomi Keyte is a welcome addition to the Nexus Arts team. An accomplished and prolific performer, Naomi is making an interesting blend of folk and alt-pop music that is distinct both sonically and lyrically.
Think Julie Byrne, Kate Bush, Sufjan Stevens, and Sharon van Etten. There is an intimacy in Naomi’s voice that is both gentle and powerful, and her band help bring to life her image-rich lyrics. In 2016 Naomi won the National Live Music Award for ‘Best Live Voice SA,’ and in 2017 was nominated for three South Australian Music awards: ‘Best Release’, ‘Best Folk’, and ‘Best Female Artist’. After the release of their debut album ‘Melaleuca’ in 2017, she has played a series of Parlour shows and a handful of festivals including Here’s to Now and WOMADelaide (2018).
With an interest in artistic diversity and a passion for supporting other artists, Naomi has recently joined the Nexus Arts team in an Artist Development Officer role – and we couldn’t be happier to have her dedication and zeal on hand.
