Nailah was once an attorney from North Carolina, but not anymore. She's still from North Carolina, but Nailah made a conscious decision to walk away from her previous career in order to focus on her first love... music.

Life In Session is the new EP from Nailah - a release that has already caught the ear of our good friend Gilles Peterson over at Radio 1. I've been lucky enough to hear some of it and it truly is a beautiful collection of songs. From the raw and emotional 'Transcending', with it's haunting clash of orchestral elements and expressive percussion, to the calming tones of 'Sacred', the music really does hit the listener deeply. Cliched as it might sound, there truly is a genuine honesty and sense of sincerity in both Nailah's lyrics and the actual vocals themselves - this was something that I certainly felt very aware of as I was listening closely and intently.
