Nanna.B – Solen

Via Jakarta Records “Nanna.B is a soulful songstress from Denmark destined to make a melodic mark on the music industry.

Melding an activist mindset and a golden voice into her textured and lush strain of neo-soul, Nanna.B is one of the most unique artists in modern R&B. On her 2 EP’s Golden (2017), and Lapis (2018) Nanna.B moves fluidly between modes and genres, spinning organic, ethereal instrumentals into introspective feminist slow jams. Nan- na.B’s eclectic sound and creative outlook has led her to make genre-defying music that includes elements of R&B, Soul, and Electronic. This musical mixture has captivated the likes of Anderson .Paak, Anthony Valadez, Iman Omari, Mndsgn, Shafiq Husayn and the Boiler Room crew to name a few. Through her unique sound, she has been able to inspire the people who inspire her, an impressive feat for an up-and-coming artists.

Nanna.B: “SOLEN is a (audio-visual) journey beginning with the sun, ending with the moon. It’s about my journey as a woman and a artist, searching for a feeling of home and belonging. On this 12 track journey I’m going through various experiences and moods that touches upon joy, creativity, depression, inner strength and power, love, separation and courage. Throughout the story i keep returning to myself as the answer to that longing for home. The album is produced almost entirely by friends and family that i have met on my travels to LA and finally both Iman Omari and Anderson .Paak helped me pick out and wrap up the songs for the final outcome. Working on each song opened up new relationships for me, and the only person on the album I never met and worked with in person is Astronote. I wanted to make an album that reflected my journey as a human and artist, the growing comfortable in my own skin, the discovery of my own power and strength, which i really found by moving out of my comfort zone in Denmark. Almost like an unfolding of myself.”

Nanna.B has opened for Anderson .Paak on his Scandinavian tour run and been featured on Beats1. She released her first self-produced installment, the LAPIS EP, in May 2018 and Nan- na.B is now ready to release her full length album, SOLEN, produced by some of LA’s most sought after producers, through German label Jakarta Records. Besides being a talented song- writer, producer and musician, Nanna.B is a trained visual artist directing everything from her cover art to videos, and for SOLEN she has created a detailed universe for each song that will be printed as a limited edition zine and exhibited at her release show.”
