NAOMI COWAN

Singer & Songwriter Naomi Cowan, is no stranger to the world of music and entertainment; she is a child of what many consider to be reggae royalty. Born & raised in Kingston, Jamaica under the mentorship of her parents Tommy Cowan, OD (reggae music producer, songwriter & former road manager for Bob Marley) & Carlene Davis-Cowan, OD (international reggae vocalist). Touted as one of the top rising female artists in Caribbean music, Cowan was recognized as the Breakthrough Reggae Artist of 2018 at the 2019 Jamaica Reggae Industry Awards. With a musical background in piano and acoustic guitar, Naomi has developed a knack for finding beautiful top line melodies with catchy hooks.
Naomi’s unique, raspy vocal tone and stellar live performance abilities have opened the way for her to stand amongst the greats.

Her hit single ‘Paradise Plum’ has topped several reggae charts and has become a staple in the new wave of reggae music.
