Not since Sade has there been a female singer of stunning beauty and musical talent that deserved to be a household name in America despite being from somewhere far, far away from the trendsetting cities of New York and Los Angeles. But Neonomora is the obvious “Sade” of the new century. Like Sade, who hails from Africa, Neonomora looks like a model. She also sings with passion and a romantic allure on songs like her new one, “Be Still, My Soul.” It’s hard not to instantly fall in love with her.
Neonomora is world class
Neonomora is an Indonesian singer who has also called China and Australia home. She’s literally a woman of the world. Born in 1988, it wasn’t until her brother and some others helped her produce an album that she became well-known in Indonesia. In late 2013, her debut EP peaked at number one on Mustang 88 FM in Jakarta, Indonesia.
Neonomora has since received praise across the media, especially from BuzzFeed, where she landed on the list of “10 Incredible Indonesian Bands You Should Listen To.”
Influenced by Mariah Carey, Bjork, Whitney Houston, and Roberta Flack, Neonomora has had a passion for singing since an early age. She began writing poetry around age 5 and has also enjoyed drawing– the arts are in her blood.
Fast forward to now: her new song, “Be Still, My Soul,” is mesmerizing and captivating– the kind of song that catches the attention of music lovers worldwide. Since it’s sung in English and has a Sade/Enya feel, there’s a good chance it could be the song to help introduce her to American audiences.
