A part of the 2019 TD Winnipeg International Jazz Festival.
Chicago-born Noname (born Fatimah Warner) blurs the lines of poetry and rap through the music she creates. In 2016, she released her debut album, Telefone, which was three years in the making and highly anticipated by fans and media alike. The project instantly gained critical acclaim, with a rave review by Pitchfork and praise from major outlets like Rolling Stone and Complex.
When first beginning to work on Telefone, Noname set out to emulate the feeling of talking on the phone with someone for the first time. But as she continued to work on the tape, her narrative transitioned into one of mortality: the idea of life and death and the duality between those two things.
Thanks to Telefone’s success, Noname has played shows in support of Ms. Lauryn Hill, who hand-picked Noname to open for her on tour.
Her latest album, Room 25, was released in September 2018 to great acclaim.
