On her website, Naomi’s voice is described as “cream-and-Kahlua,” which greatly intrigued me and turned out to be completely accurate. Her music is a mix of folk, blues and country.
Arriving after the set started, I heard Naomi’s soulful voice as I entered Sketchbook. Although it was crowded, I was able to get a small table just left of the stage.
I previously enjoyed Naomi’s music online, but it pales in comparison to experiencing it live. I was very impressed with Naomi’s smooth and clear vocals. Their musicianship was tight and strong without overpowering her vocals. Midway through their set, I kept thinking this was like musical comfort food.
After their set, I talked to Naomi and Jon, telling them it was the first time I saw them live, but it won’t be my last time. Although I will see them elsewhere, I also look forward to a return to Sketchbook.
Today also featured a Soul & Smoke pop-up kitchen, offering beef brisket sandwiches, pulled pork sandwiches, mac and cheese and more. Their food is always a hit.
A two-block walk from my place, Sketchbook is one of my go-to places for interesting brews and various pop-up kitchens. The entertainment is an extra bonus. Sometimes I even drop by just to relax and soak in the atmosphere.
