Born and raised in Tokyo, Japan in an Indian family, Naashi was exposed to myriad cultural influences from a young age. This reflects in her eclectic taste. Hip-Hop, Pop, and R&B are all genres that have left subtle impressions on her style. With such a diverse range of influences, what ties her songs together are the wistful, homesick lyrics and fresh urban sound. Songwriters she admires and tries to emulate in her music include Frank Ocean, Ty Dolla $ign, Starrah, Jhene Aiko and Childish Gambino, to name a few. Her newest release is a 5-song E.P. of Pop/R&B songs entitled "In Time": a way for listeners to catch a glimpse of the world through Naashi's eyes.
