February 22, 2023
In a world where music is often used as a form of escapism, it’s refreshing to see artists like Naweh, who use their craft to bridge cultural gaps and encourage social change.
Born in Washington D.C. to Liberian parents, Naweh’s music style fuses African-American roots with contemporary R&B, hip-hop, and afro-pop. Her ability to connect with diverse audiences through her music is impressive, making her an artist to watch in the industry.
In a recent interview, Naweh shared her unique qualities that set her apart from other artists in the industry. Her soulful and colorful voice coupled with her heart and experiences as a social worker allows her to connect with people on a deeper level, especially during their most vulnerable moments.
Her music is a reflection of the struggles and triumphs of the human experience, and her performances are captivating and empowering.
Naweh’s journey to discovering her passion for music began at the age of 9 when she sang “Away in the Manger” at a church service.
The experience was transformative, and she realized that music was what she was born to do. From there, she continued to nurture her craft, overcoming challenges like not appreciating the uniqueness of her voice.
But through hard work and studying vocalists who had similar voices, she learned to appreciate her tone and range, and today, her voice is celebrated and recognized as her signature sound.
Naweh’s commitment to using her music as a form of activism is commendable. Her hit songs like “Visions,” “Not There Yet,” and “Find You” demonstrate her ability to shift from reflective songwriter to outspoken reformist.
She has been featured on various platforms, including WUSA 9’s Great Day Washington and Love and Marriage DC’s DJ Quick Silva and the Braxton Sisters.
Naweh’s performances at prestigious events like the Alpha Phi Alpha ball in Paynesville, Liberia, The World Bank’s cultural night at Howard University, and The Liberian Awards in Delaware are testaments to her ability to connect cultures through her music.
Naweh is an artist to watch in the industry. Her unique ability to connect with diverse audiences through her music and her commitment to using her craft as a form of activism sets her apart from other artists.
With her soulful and colorful voice and her heart for people, Naweh is making waves in the industry and inspiring change through her music.
