Title - 'Nainnoh'
Artist - Nainnoh

For those not in the know, Nainnoh is a Georgian-born American singer-songwriter. She blends atmospheric folk into psychedelic indie pop, intricate mixture of poetry, visual art, and cinematic mental imagery to create an all encompassing artistic statement.

Nainnoh was born in Rustavi, Georgia. Her father was an architect and her mother was a biochemist, so naturally, she grew up with a curious mind.

Her musical talents emerged very early, as she showed a surprising knack for American pop and jazz from an early age. She started piano and solfeggio lessons at 7 and began writing her own songs when she was only 11.

With a sound influenced by Joni Mitchell and Nina Simone as well as Georgian folk music, she began exploring the mystic infinities of the universe, adding astrology and physics to her songwriting vocabulary.

Nainnoh’s transcendent talent opened many doors for her and allowed her to work with some of the top talents in the music industry for her first album, the just-released, self-titled opus Nainnoh.

John Sully was her music producer, cited for his sound design and diverse multimedia career in the New York underground. Additionally she worked with Grammy winner Chris Gehringer and music industry mainstay Daniel Lynas.

Here on Nainnoh, Nainnoh has made a quite stirring album full of cosmic psychedelic meditations and melodies that reach the highest form of expression.

Opening with the luminous orchestrations of 'Cambium Rings' and the '70s-esque psych trip of 'Colors,' next up is the sonically-challenged reverb of 'Water,' then we get the more ethereal 'Run,' before both the jagged outlines of 'Threads' and the more '70s lush pop folk flow of 'Seasons' are brought forth.

We then get the mystically-imbibed 'Reasons' and some beautifully cultivated melodies within 'Break Apart' which are in turn followed by the smooth and creamy vibe of 'Vital Illusions,' with this uniquely sculpted album coming to a close on the quietly ornate 'Words' and the foot-tappin' beats of the mid-tempo 'Velvet Mode.'

"I've always been fascinated by the mysticism of the Georgian language," says Nainnoh, 'and the Georgian word for 'god' actually originated form the phrase 'deep one'."

"I want people listening to these songs to realize the depth of their powers to love and heal and unite, to realize that we could all be gods in our own ways. I want my music to be that kind of awakening."
