With roots in bluegrass, the blues, jazz, traditional folk, and old-time country, singer/songwriter Naomi Sommers yet brings a unique and compelling voice to the music scene. She grew up in New England, in a home full of music and instruments, and still performs regularly with her parents and brother in the Sommers Rosenthal Family Band. Since 2002, Naomi has released three CDs of original songs on her father's (bluegrass musician and and record producer Phil Rosenthal) independent label, American Melody Records. In 2004 she was the New Folk songwriting finalist at the Kerrville Folk Festival in Texas. In 2006 she released a mesmerizing CD, Gray Sky Girls, with old-time, organic slowgrass duo partner, Lisa Bastoni. Now in 2008 Naomi has just released an album called Gentle As The Sun, recorded in Nashville, and produced by the acclaimed musician/producer Jim Rooney (John Prine, Iris Dement, Nanci Griffith, Bonnie Raitt).
