NYC United States
Nomi Ruiz of Brooklyn trio Jessica 6 guides us through a selection of all-time faves and modern gems that make her tick.
Brooklyn trio _(artist-name)Jessica 6_ have been making waves on the NYC eccentric underground since 2008. Pushing the boundaries of disco-not-disco and avant-garde r&b, the group fronted by singer, songwriter and certified stage hog _(artist-name)Nomi Ruiz_, and backed by _(artist-name)Automato_’s former bass and synth masters Andrew Raposo and Morgan Wiley found together through performing regularly as members of disco powerhouse _(artist-name)Hercules and Love Affair_. With a knack for leftfield hip hop, glossy r&b anthems, _(artist-name)Fleetwood Mac_ and the overall dark, camp and dramatic, they’ve amassed a swirling patchwork of sounds that breathes the NY state of mind up to the tiniest details. Lead singer Nomi Ruiz currently resides in Thessaloniki, Greece, from where she embarks on regular tours with the likes of _(artist-name)Debbie Harry_, _(artist-name)Peaches_, _(artist-name)CocoRosie_ or _(artist-name)Antony & The Johnsons_, and participates in numerous projects and solo endeavours.
