Nazneen Rahman is a London based singer-songwriter and scientist. She writes songs about your life, about everyone's life.
From the mundane to the magical. Her lyrically driven songs capture you with rich storytelling and velvet vocals that listeners describe as emotional, honest, tender, sensual.
Nazneen has committed her working life to cancer research. Music has been an equal passion which she started sharing with debut album 'Can't Clip My Wings' in 2014 and 'Answers No Questions' in 2017.
Now with her most ambitious album, 'I'm Too Old to Die Young', she takes listeners on a journey contemplating our fragile, changing relationships with Time, Aging and Identity. The ten original songs chart a complementary musical journey, with sophisti-pop, jazz and electronic influences that feel both fresh and timeless.
The album has been universally well-received, with extensive radio and Spotify plays. It is a Bestselling album in Bandcamp and 'Ain't No Love Like This' reached the Finals of the UK Songwriting Competition.
Following live performances on The Gaby Roslin Show Nazneen is preparing for live performances in 2020.
“Nazneen sings her wonderful songs in an intimate way making you feel she is singing just for you. Each song is a part of a story told by the album, once you play the first song you have to listen to them all. 'I'm Too Old To Die Young' is a great album.”
“The range of styles explored are really broad. You get a share of radiant pop, lavish lo-fi electronic music, beautifully easy-going lounge-esque soul, and in the case of the superb titular finale, a glorious big brass band direction.”
