Absolutely Brilliant!’ (BBC Radio) ‘Teen Star’ (Mizz Magazine) ‘Talented Songwriter’ (Music Week) as well as Huffington Post, Manchester Evening News and Oldham Chronicle.

She was spotted on TV by one of the world’s most successful producers, John McLaughlin (Busted, 911, Westlife), who together with Dave Thomas and Jud Mahoney (Michael Jackson, Mariah Carey, Chris Brown) went on to produce her first 4 track EP ‘Another Day’ written by Naomi.

In 2014, Naomi signed a publishing deal with A&G Songs and the song ‘Start Again’ which Naomi wrote and performed was selected by the UK company ‘Talk Talk’ for their UK Home & Broadband marketing campaign across television, radio and online media.

She has performed live on BBC Radio Manchester & BBC Radio Sheffield and played over 52 concerts to over 15,000 youngsters, twice playing The Etihad Stadium in Manchester, to over 7000 people at the Oldham festival and at ‘G in the Park’ and the West End Festival in Scotland.

Don’t you find that there are times when things just blow your mind
And you feel that someone somewhere has to explain
As you wonder of the agenda that lurks behind
All the while you’re just thinking, here we go again

So what’s the story, what’s the deal, well that’s the question
And the best that you can hope for are some straight answers
You will find that there will be a lot of misdirection
So you got to just cut through the smoke and mirrors

No, you don’t want it, you don’t need it – something’s going on
You can feel it, you can sense it – right or wrong
Things are said and things are done that raises doubt
Leaves you hanging, and having to ask – What’s That About?

It doesn’t add up, it doesn’t make sense, no it’s out of line
When you know that they set up some algorithm
Gotta know why, gotta find a good/strong light to shine
Cos you won’t just accept it’s a glitch in the system

Middle 8:
Just an actor in the theatre of the strange and the absurd
A player, not a playwright, not given the last word
Can’t stage your own exit, or escape with some dignity
So dig deep, stand fast, and try to solve this mystery

No, you don’t want it, you don’t need it – something’s going on
You can feel it, you can sense it – right or wrong
Things are said, things are done – raises doubt
Leaves you hanging – What’s That About?
