RPM: Nokomis

Anna Nokomis is a Scottish singer/songwriter, now based in London that released her debut album “In Waves” throughout the pandemic in 2019/2020

“The first vinyl that I added to my collection were 3 drum and bass records gifted to me from a friend for my 15th Birthday. Since then I’ve picked up a few bits here and there but didn’t start properly collecting until about 5 years ago…”

“If someone was to describe my record collection it would be an eclectic mix of genres and that I have a soft spot for film soundtracks..”

“Buying records is one of the best ways you can directly support an artists work. I love the ritual of putting on a record and listening from start to finish, something we rarely do now with streaming. You can’t beat the sound and feel of vinyl and each record I own evokes a memory.”
