Naomi: ‘Rivers Run’


Naomi Higginson was discovered after a song she wrote for her GCSE music exam led to her being featured on ITV’s Daybreak.

19 year old Naomi has since been working with one of the world’s most successful producers, John McLaughlin, who’s also produced Busted and Westlife. John is working together with Dave Thomas (Echo And The Bunnymen) and Jud Mahoney (Michael Jackson, Mariah Carey, Chris Brown) to help Naomi realise her vision of what she wants her music to achieve.

Naomi’s voice has warmth and strength that would be surprising in someone much older, so it’s no wonder she’s been snapped up. ‘Rivers Run’ is an evocative, soothing song, beautiful.

Naomi’s new single ‘Rivers Run’ is out on September 25th. Watch the video here:

About the author

There’s a lot of music out there - good music. At Essentially Pop our remit is that we cover music that deserves to be heard, with a particular focus on independent artists. That doesn't mean we won't cover your old favourites - rather we hope to give you some new favourites as well.

We no longer accept unpaid PR agency work. We believe the creative arts have value, and this includes writing. As always, we will write about artists who contact us - or who we contact - for free - but we can no longer work free of charge for PR agencies. We work hard, we put in a lot of hours writing, and we ask that you respect that. Contact us for our very reasonable rates.
