Japanese Neo-soul star Nao Yoshioka returns with her 4th album featuring a stellar line up including; Musicman, Ty: producer of her US top 40 Adult Contemporary Urban Billboard hit  “I Love When” and Khari Mateen (Jill Scott, The Roots) back at the engineering helm. The King of Indie Soul, Eric Roberson (on 'About U' and produced 'Invest In Me' feat rapper Carolyn Malachi), vocalist Chris Turner, LA producer Lorenzo Johnson (Ledisi, Maysa), on drums Chris Dave (Robert Glasper), The Drumhedz keyboardist Daniel Crawford, plus A Touch of Jazz production team alumni and Grammy-winning producer Vidal Davis (Ne-yo, Usher).

 

The album also features young and upcoming producers/artists like Devin Morrison (producer of 'Loyalty') and Kiah Victoria. The single has been reworked by the UK's Blue Lab Beats to add a nu jazz twist. The album 'Undeniable' got a release in the US last summer where Nao is now based. It was predominantly recorded at Milkboy The Studio in Philly (know as the epicentre of neo soul in the early 2000's) which was originally opened by SalSoul legend Larry Gold (who helped arrange strings on 'Where Am I Supposed To Be') with additional programming by KiIliam Shakespear.
