Since the release of their debut album Icaros, Leeds based electronic-soul quartet, Noya Rao have been noted as one of the rising talents of the UK Jazz scene.

The band garnered early support from Gilles Peterson who premiered their single Golden Claw. The group have also enjoyed radio play from Mary Anne Hobbs, Jamie Cullum and have appeared on Worldwide fm.

Noya Rao are vocalist Olivia Bhattacharjee, drummer Matt Davies, bassist Jim Wiltshire and keys player & producer Tom Henry. The band draw upon influences old and new, combining a vintage aesthetic with contemporary songwriting. The result is a fresh and unique sound.

Ahead of their second release, Noya Rao continue to take their finely-tuned live show nationally and internationally having this year played at The Great Escape, Jazz Refreshed Brighton, the Roundhouse and Unit (Tokyo).
