Born in Toronto, Ontario, NDAI is making a name for herself. The R&B artist’s distinct, soothing and ethereal voice is amplified with her writing style focusing on cadence, paired with the desire to fill the spaces inbetween the music. She gives the listener a raw and genuine take on the many anecdotes she shares about her life and the lessons she’s had to learn and overcome.
NDAI /ˈnedā/ aims to create art with her heart and her music is no exception, she holds true to herself by being honest. She explains:
“Great art has a certain truth to it. As artists we hold up a mirror to society and weave the words into songs that are simply too difficult to articulate otherwise. It’s a combination of skill, inspiration, and vulnerability, which is the key to honesty. Honesty can only come from a vulnerable place where the ego cannot coexist, it is unpretentious, unadulterated and raw.”
Rather than filling an archetype that’s somewhat dictated by the industry, the Toronto born singer/songwriter definitely has a style of her own. A multi-disciplinary artist whose artistic expression spans across music, art and film. Coming from a pedigree of musicians and artists (Muttoo Brothers Calypso Orchestra, and music engineer father Stephen Muttoo), it was almost no surprise music would be an important part of her life.
