Nai Palm Announces ‘Needle Paw’ Australian Album Tour

Niche are excited to present two-time Grammy nominated singer, songwriter & musician Nai Palm, as she tours the country this December in celebration of her debut solo record.

She is a composer, instrumentalist, producer, vocalist and poet who approaches all of these self-taught disciplines with an intuitive, infectious grace which sent her on a journey to sculpt songs that have been received and treasured across the world. It is a world she has travelled many times over with her live band project Hiatus Kaiyote, who along with Nai Palm have become household names since they first began playing together in Melbourne in 2011.

Championed the world over by musical icons including ?uestlove, Erykah Badu, Anderson Paak and the late Prince, 2017 has seen Hiatus Kaiyote’s album sampled on two of Hip-hop’s biggest releases, opening Drake’s project More Life, and closing Kendrick Lamar’s album Damn.

This success has set the stage for Nai Palm’s first solo release Needle Paw.

Needle Paw is Nai Palm’s self-imposed challenge to explore the potential for immortality and timelessness within her music by stripping away the produced layers to focus on the element that is closest to the source of the human soul, the voice.

Compromised almost entirely of her guitar playing and vocal arrangements Needle Paw is the most honest glimpse into Nai Palm’s musical world. It is dreamlike, honest, beautifully transparent and reveals her musical ruminations to listeners with a courageous vulnerability and artistic generosity.

“I want to remind people that there are humans behind the music. Not just compression and reverb. The urgency for accuracy is not human. The exposed process is human, without the cheat codes.”
