Adam Naas may only be 24, but his soul-man voice is one such phenomenon. Right from his first song, Fading Away, he caught the attention of Les Inrocks and Clique.tv. The Frenchman’s style – a somberly romantic, contemporary dark soul that never stops posturing or excessive effects – makes a powerful impression. Writing his music himself, he transmutes his personal experiences into universal emotions (love, fear, disquiet, hope…). So with just a few nostalgic and compelling, melancholic and radiant songs, he has defined his art: a personal, intimate, startlingly sincere soul-pop. His first EP will be released this fall on Virgin/Mercury.
