NEW DAY

 
 

A budding songstress and producer, NAJE (pronounced “Na-Jay”) writes, records, and independently produces lyric-driven songs under her label and publishing company, Supervixen Music. Best known for her soulful, sultry sound and style, NAJE pens catchy, emotional songs and has performed at top venues and festivals around the country including Great America Music Hall, Yoshi’s Jazz Club, Fillmore Jazz Festival, San Jose Jazz Festival, Athens Jazz Festival, Athfest, The Fabulous 40 Watt, Chicago New Music Festival, The Georgia Theatre, The Masquerade, and many more.

She was born Rebecca Benham in Virginia Beach, VA, and raised on an eclectic diet of rock and punk rock, before developing her love for jazz and Billie Holiday. After completing her undergraduate degree at the University of Florida, she set off for Athens, Georgia and joined the all-girl rock band The Supervixens. She teamed up with Hayden Thais (former member of Man or Astroman? and Servotron) early on in her music career to write “Dying Starry Avengers” which was later performed by The Supervixens and released through Athens, GA indie label Kindercore Records before the band dissolved. After the Supervixens, she set off on her solo career and adopted the stage name ‘NaJe’ – taken from her late mother’s name ‘Najebi’.

Not only does NAJE always deliver a compelling and charismatic show with her unique vocal sound, she also consistently fills the room with her loyal following. First we kicked off our Local Talent Series, and NAJE led the way in making it a success. When we decided to launch our Yoshi’s Jazz Supper Club, we knew that NAJE was the artist we wanted to feature in our opening month. It was every bit as successful as we had hoped and more.
