#NewMusicMonday - Nneka "Suffri" and Scala live show details

Nneka live show at Scala, King's Cross

Nneka's extremely successful second album No Longer At Ease was released in the UK last August. It was an album described as "the most invigorating, innovative and powerful release of the year" by the Independent, that gave birth to a bonafide hit single with Heartbeat reaching BBC Radio 1's A-List; and saw her awarded a 2009 MOBO Award for Best African Act. recently included Nneka in their 2010 Emerging Artists alongside Ellie Goulding, Delphic and The Drums.

Having toured almost non-stop she is now making waves in the USA. SPIN have named her one of the 10 artists to watch in 2010, Rolling Stone gave a four star review and a David Letterman 'Breakout Artist' performance saw her reach her biggest audience yet.

It's a testament to the strength of Nneka's talent that her success has grown by word of mouth, on the quality of her albums and the intensity of her live performance. She is not a big-label product, forced down people's throats by marketing dollars.

Her audience - and there are hundreds of thousands of them, across two continents - have sought her out, because there will always be a demand for music that does more than just entertain, but touches something universal. As she puts it herself: "I do it in a sweet way - but I sing to speak the truth."
