Born in Winston-Salem, NC, composer, vocalist and musician, Nailah, was always connected to music. Although she grew up performing in choirs and local bands, Nailah took the “safe” route and became a D.C. attorney and lobbyist for a law enforcement organization.

Luckily for us she decided to change careers and walk away from a lucrative career as a Capitol Hill Attorney/Lobbyist. Luckily…because I’ve just finished my first listen of her EP Life in Session….and believe me I most definitely want more

Since Gilles Peterson is very impressed with her performance and thinks her to be one of the dicoveries 0f 2009…it came as no surprise that what I heard was truly marvelous. Cause the one thing Gilles is known for is his excellent taste in music.

But it is one thing to write and read about music and another to experience music. Nailah happens to be the kind of music you should experience…her lyrics happen to be profound, real and very uplifting and this afcourse works very well with her sound that is refreshing, soothing and enticing at the same time.

According to several post and her own website there will be more soon for she has been working on her album Conjazzness which is scheduled for release in 2010. Afcourse Strangefruitmusic will keep you updated on all of this but for now…you’ll have to enjoy Breathe one of the very rare Nailah music video’s available on the net.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Brownswood number 5 will drop on the 8th of March. I think this compilation goes faster with it’s volumes then lots of other compilations. But the quality control is still there at the Brownswood headquarters. This time it’s a very tasty affair. I think even better than the other volumes. I wasn’t that sure about the volume 4. But with artist such as Ron BasejamElectric Wire HustleNailah and Shafiq Husayn you can t go wrong! 

Expect some already known Worldwide anthems and some new and unknown stuff. To buy this compilation you can click here
