Nana Adjoa is a sonic explorer and a curious singer songwriter, armed with a deft poeticism and a fierce sense of musicianship. Her vocal delivery conveys intimacy and urgency at the same time: it’s able to warm up a big variety of different sounds, which draw inspiration from modern soul pop, as well as from jazz and rock.
The debut album “Big Dreaming Ants” presents wordy and thoughtful lyrics about national identity, protest, love and death. Adjoa tells her story as a quest for understanding humanity, making it become our story: a tale told with rare delicacy!
“There are flashes of The National, Solange and Elliott Smith throughout Big Dreaming Ants; a record full of wide-ranging ideas, by an emerging artist with the talent to make talking about the big stuff seem easy.” Loud and Quiet
