Nectar Woode

Nothing to Lose

communion records
  • 12" EP

    Released: 23rd Feb 2024


From the joyful musical roots of her Ghanaian heritage, to the raw storytelling of singers like Lauryn Hill that first piqued her interest as a teen, to the supportive South London neo-soul community that she's found a home in more recent years, there's one thing that connects the musical jigsaw of 24-year-old Nectar Woode: honesty.

Though seemingly disparate on the surface, Nectar's influences speak of an artist who has spent her life so far nurturing the things that truly make her tick. Growing up in Milton Keynes, she jokes of her hometown as "a very beige place", but her household as a "creative bubble" within it. Her Ghanaian amateur saxophoneplayer father would fill the house with jazz and Highlife music, while her English mother worked as an artist and fashion pattern cutter; exposed to a creative way of life and a wide variety of sounds, both mainstream and niche, it opened Nectar's ears to a world of sonic possibility.
