Naomi

If you’re searching for a vintage performer with more vivacity, vamp and vavavoom than Betty Boop on steroids, then Naomi Hart is the vintage vixen for you.

Versatility is as much Naomi’s trademark as her wide engaging smile. Stylistically, her on-stage presence and crystal clear vocals cut more retro than you can shake a Shure at. This foxy front woman brings glamour and gaiety to any vintage-themed occasion.

Effortlessly traversing musical styles from sultry, sassy speakeasy blues to big band belters, Naomi’s richly authentic tones are matched by a look that can leap from Boop to Bacal in a single jingle.

Raised to the sounds of Leadbelly, Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters and Ma Rainey, Naomi’s love of these and other all time greats like Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holliday and Bessie Smith informed and shaped her musical style and enduring love of performing.

In her early twenties, Naomi’s talent as a singer and performer who seamlessly crossed eras and genres captured the attention of the music scene in her home county of Shropshire.

A raft of bookings, from small intimate venues to large stately homes, came her way and she rapidly became an established artist on the regional jazz circuit, renowned for her rich repertoire, style and sophistication.

Now an accomplished singer, performer, musical arranger and band leader, vocally Naomi is as comfortable lilting out the haunting melodies of her 1930s speakeasy idols as she is with the rip-roaring, rag-time hotsy-totsy tunes and wartime big band swing that set spirits a-soaring.

From achingly soulful velvety vocals reminiscent of Ella, to show tune showstoppers, Naomi Hart is a performer who gets audiences on their feet hollering themselves hoarse for more.
