Born and raised in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, New York, side by side with the rebellious growth of Hip-Hop, Nomi Ruiz began composing songs around Hip-Hop heavy street samples at the age of 12. Her velvety vocals, personal lyrical content and dark, yet colorful, melody lines found refuge in these raw arrangements, creating a unique brand of soul music. Her 2005 debut album ‘Lost In Lust’ was compared to a union between Sade on vocals with The Rza on beats. She found herself on tour with Debbie Harry and would grow to be part of a movement of artists who have changed the landscape of contemporary music.
