NESSI GOMES - DIAMONDS & DEMONS - NORTH AMERICAN TOUR 2017.
Following the release of her acclaimed debut album, British - Portuguese singer - songwriter Nessi Gomes (winner of the best unsigned British female artist for 2016) is embarking on her first North American tour.
Born on the tiny Island of Guernsey to a Portuguese family, singer- songwriter Nessi Gomes channels influences from both sides of her ethnicity, blending the essence of the traditional, emotional and ‘larger than life’ Fado folk music with British progressive modern inspiration.
