Her “Three Words” Album was honored by Hampton Roads for Best Song and Album. She is featured in the book I’ve Got Thunder, a collection of stories about Black female recording artists, including Abbey Lincoln, Chaka Kahn, and Joan Armatrading.

You can hear her idols in her music, from Joni Mitchell’s to Tracy Chapmans finely crafted songs. She studied classical music, and jazz guitar, and there are elements of that in her work, as well as a nod to the blues and a strong connection to contemporary folk.

There’s a good reason radio Host Barry Graham says, “Narissa has set a new standard for the art of singing and songwriting … she is the real thing.” Get the real thing. Listen to Narissa Bond.
