Nola Darling STFU (Start the Riot)

Hailing from New York and Los Angeles, by way of Haiti & St. Lucia, NOLA DARLING’s sound is new school fresh, yet old world cool. Tongue-in-cheek sensibility and spit-fire flows mashed-up with sweet and siren-like vocals make Alexandra and Jaquita the girls you want to get to know.

Citing The Fugees, Zap Mama, Tanya Stephens, Steel Pulse, Esthero and Salt ‘N Pepa, among many others as strong influences, Alex and Jaq continue to hone their crafts and unique sound. They have collaborated with an impressive and growing list of artist/producers including: Grammy winners Om’mas Keith (Frank Ocean, Erykah Badu) and Shafiq Hussein (Robert Glasper, Erykah Badu), Tim K (Esthero, Tiny Hearts, Dam Funk), and the legendary Kwame (Mary J Blige, Christina Aguilera, Will Smith).

Nola Darling also collaborated with chart topping Australian group, Yolanda Be Cool on the international smash “Change,” for YBC’s debut album, “Ladies and Mentalmen” (Steve Aoki's DIM MAK Records). “Change” has been in heavy rotation on radio stations from Bali to London, to Australia and beyond. The tune hit #1 on the official Korean EDM chart in May 2013.

The ladies of Nola Darling are currently working on top line for an array of up and coming producers as well as writing for their upcoming releases. Stay tuned for much more to come from Alex and Jaq this year and don't miss them live this Monday 1/13/14 at The Mint when they play our live radio show.
