There’s a bright future for Naomi Wachira, who was named "Best Folk Singer" by Seattle Weekly in 2013, gracing their cover in the process. Influenced by two groundbreaking female songwriters, Miriam Makeba and Tracy Chapman, she makes music plucked from her life and imbued with a sense of hopefulness. Her self-titled debut album — produced by Damien Jurado — was released early this year.
