NAAZ — Netherlands
Following the release of debut EP Bits of Naaz, her career took off quickly amassing huge support both at home where she won two Dutch Grammies and was nominated for ‘Best Act’ at MTV’s EMAs, whilst internationally supporting Arcade Fire and Jessie J. Naaz is a 21-year-old singer-songwriter and producer, who immediately captures your attention with her distinctive voice. Coming from a Kurdish background, it took some time to convince her family she needed to follow her passion. In the meantime she taught herself to write, produce and record her own ‘quirkpop’ in her bedroom.
