Marie Naffah // In Short

marie

Marie Naffah is an artist on a roll, in a year that’s seen her announced for Brainchild and Ringmaster festivals, play the legendary Ronnie Scott’s, get retweeted by Daft Punk and win MTV’s Brand New Unsigned competition. An intelligent writer and player, her sets are characterised by sharp original lyrics and genius mashups, covers and wonderful surprises that reveal Marie’s innate ability to perform to a crowd.

We had a little chat with Naffah to find out more about what makes her tick:

Listening a lot to Sivu and St Raymond at the moment. Get involved.

If I could see anyone play live it would be…

The answer to that question would have been Fleetwood Mac but my prayers were answered when they played the 02 in London.
I’ve always wanted to see Kings of Leon or maybe even Florence & The Machine.
