New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Winning MTV's Unsigned Artist Of The Year, selling out London's The Lexington, giving TED Talks regarding the stigma behind disability in the music industry and all before releasing any music. With industry experts tipping her for big things, soulful singer-songwriter Marie Naffah finally releases her debut single 'Let Me Wilt', showing that "being yourself has never been cooler".

Having already been featured on the likes of Balcony TV London, XFM, Absolute Radio, Metro and NME, Marie knew it was time to release her debut single. Inspired by the likes of Aretha Franklin, Janis Joplin and Amy Winehouse, Naffah brings soul back to the mainstream with 'Let Me Wilt', written after a coffee with Stevie Wonder producer, Guy Holmes, who told Marie she had the talent to succeed.

It all started in 2014 after Marie uploaded a YouTube video, leading to her being titled MTV's Unsigned Artist Of The Year, putting her with the likes of Sam Smith, George Ezra and Ella Eyre. Soon Marie released 'Blindfold', the project where she delved into the stigma surrounding disability in the music industry and how we should tackle it, in response to her Grandmother losing her sight. The passion project led to Naffah giving TedTalks, making a documentary and gaining national coverage. Through the 'Blindfold' project, Marie met Kevin Satizabal, a blind pianist with whom she collaborates and plays live with at all gigs.

Not many people can say their music has been endorsed by Daft Punk, played the legendary Ronnie Scotts, sold out The Lexington and won an MTV Unsigned Award all before releasing their debut single but Marie Naffah can.
