    About

    “Naomi is one of the country's most ambitious and innovative writers with a unique and highly contemporary take on folk and popular song, and an instinct for weaving stories that are both intimate and expansive” - Max Savage

    "Naomi is THAT lyricist, the one that puts you in such a specific time and place so effortlessly. She paints pictures of such detail that you can smell the salt air or feel the earthen floor. Can't wait to hear where she takes us next" - Tommy Faith, Triple J

    "Rich with a sense of the melancholic and mysterious"- The Music

    Greenhill - "This is such a beauty, a gorgeous stripped back song that builds effortlessly into a beautiful rise"

    - Zan Rowe, Triple J

    "Her debut 2017 album Melaleuca was not only a confident release of minimal folk pop, effortlessly showcasing her lyrical sensitivity and ethereal voice, it also achieved her goal of making ‘simple’, stripped back music that would connect more deeply with people"- Paul Gough, ABC

     Naomi Keyte uses the vehicle of contemporary folk music to explore multiple ways of connecting.; connection to self, connection with others, and connection to personal and collective narratives; connection with audiences, rooms and places. 

    With Keyte's intimate and detail-rich lyrics, sensitive yet powerful voice, and her band's intuitive and painterly accompaniment, this collective humbly offers up a truly beautiful and moving set. Drawing inspiration from artists like Big Thief, Maple Glider, Feist, Gillian Welch and composers like Nils Frahm and Bill Frisell, Naomi Keyte brings to life songs in a nuanced and singular way. There isn't anyone who sounds quite like this.
