Born in Lisbon but raised in South London, Nãnci Correia first came to light as part of ‘Nãnci & Phoebe’, a duo she formed alongside rapper Phoebe Hibbert. The pair became an underground sensation, positioning themselves in the centre of a generation’s return to Jungle and prompting online magazine ‘Who’s Jack’ to compare Correia’s vocals to that of Adele and Florence Welch. Coming from a background of Jazz, Blues and Latin music, Correia is now letting these influences take her in different directions with her solo work. Previously working with Congo Natty (aka Rebel MC) on “Get Ready” alongside Tenor Fly and Daddy Freddy, Correia has gained further recognition from MTVBase, Annie Mac, David Rodigan and MistaJam.
