Naomi Greene writes to electric harp, guitar and drum machines and sings poetic lyrics, enveloping and personal, with disarming directness. Her neo pop is a unique blend of strength and vulnerability, sometimes reminiscent of a cross between Kate Bush, Nico, and PJ Harvey.

The Huffington Post ”Naomi has a captivating presence both on and off stage. She plays her harp with a lot of passion. The outcome is a stripped down live video with no gimmicks just pure artist with instrument.”

BUZZBANDS LA The music of Naomi Greene seduces with harp and electric guitar, with lyrics seemingly cribbed from some ancient text, sung with almost supernatural purity.”

Amadeus Magazine ”French singer-songwriter Naomi Greene’s raw songs are defined by the uniqueness of her harp-playing, her voice, and her tone. From emotion-driven tunes like “No Skin” and “Iron House,” to the dreaminess of her newest single “Laura,” Greene’s sound is smooth, heartfelt, and truly one-of-a-kind.”

EDM Boutique “‘Laura’ is one of those songs that subtly takes hold of your mind; familiarize yourself with the completely singular talent of Naomi Greene.”

Time Out Paris  “When hearing Naomi Greene, you find yourself immersed in another time.” 

Atwood  Magazine “Currently based in Los Angeles, Greene asserts a calming serenity and confident warmth through lilting melodies and soft, subtle instrumentation. “Laura” expands from a whisper to fill the airwaves with hypnotic beauty, engaging an array of instrumentation whose delicate notes seep under the skin, kissing our bones.”

When the Horn Blows Existing in the shadows between the beautiful and the bizarre is LA based singer-songwriter Naomi Greene and her majestic new single 'No Skin'.  Gently lulling her listener with beguiling harp arpeggios, Naomi Greene's crystalline, enchanting vocals float their way to a raw, fever pitch, culmination alongside eerie and hypnotic layered arrangements.”

Destroy/Exist “On her solo endeavors Greene's weapons of choice are the harp and the electric guitar with which she produces a strangely alluring kind of folk music, all soft and quiet but still rich in layers and texture.“

Oheestee - ”Greene’s lyrics come to life as she quivers between fleeting realities.”

Raised in Paris, France and later relocating to Los Angeles, California, indie singer/songwriter Naomi Greene began performing in small Parisian clubs in her teenage years, eventually branching out and finding like minded artists in NYC and LA. Greene recorded with french band La Femme, as a guest vocalist on their record “Mystère”, as well as with Long Beach native Daniel Michicoff in his faux french pop trio with members of Cold War Kids and the Shins. In 2010 Greene released her first single “Iron House” as a part of the soundtrack of Thompson’s film Bus Palladium, in which she also starred as an actress. After taking time to study and develop as a singer and harpist, Greene has recently released her first self-produced singles No Skin and Laura, and is currently writing her debut album.

She is currently on tour with french icon Laurent Voulzy, and her recent collaborations include M83, Raphael Hamburger, La Femme, Tijuana Panthers and Clara Cappagli of Agar Agar.
