Singer-songwriter Nana Adjoa is a sonic explorer, armed with a deft poeticism and a fierce sense of musicianship. Today she has released another track from her highly anticipated debut album which is due this fall. The new song is titled “Throw Stones.” Nana says, "This song is about me calming myself down in difficult times. To feel, regroup, and reflect. If you need that right now, to feel it to embrace it and slowly heal, you can listen to this song and count to 10. You don't always have to be 'on', you are allowed to take time, to rest and come back feeling refreshed, better and stronger. I hope this song gives you pause, time to breathe."

Born and raised in Amsterdam, Nana Adjoa is a multi-instrumentalist, producer, and singer with Ghanian roots. After studying jazz at the Amsterdam Conservatory, Nana started to release her poetic blend of soul, folk, and jazz. Tackling complicated questions of race, gender, religion, and sexuality, Nana often meditates on the meaning and make-up of one's identity. Her thoughtful music has already turned heads at Fader, Stereogum, KCRW, Refinery29 and landed her on stage with Benjamin Clementine, Neneh Cherry, among others.
