Naomi Carmack's doing something with music that you just don't see enough of today - playing rock as a female.
The 27 year old has been singing professionally since the age of 12.
Naomi wrote and recorded a dance single called "Be My Baby" in 1991, and entered it in a contest with Edmonton radio station, Power 92.5 FM. She won a coveted spot on the "Powermix" compilation CD.
The CD was remixed by Canadian DJ Chris Sheppard, and sold at Edmonton record stores in 1995.
Naomi was honoured by the Alberta Recording Industry Association with a nomination for the "Best Dance/Rap/Rhythm Artist" award.
Naomi has also won other singing contests in recent history. Her vocals are edgy. Some are surprised with the grittiness and power she carries when she takes the microphone.
With her focus now primarily on a rock career, she cites Bon Jovi, Nickelback, Default, Alanis Morissette, and Sass Jordan as a few of her biggest influences. Naomi has been writing and recording in the studio for the past 5 years, working with local producers to make her talent heard.
Naomi will be spending early 2009 in the studio, as well as performing in and around Edmonton as the singer of the band, Six String Loaded.
