NomaD was born on October 25th, 2016 as an act of rebirth after surviving a heart attack. In his new life, he realized his calling to help people and to guide them towards an awakened state NomaD is a healer who loves sound baths, meditation, setting intentions, and believes in the power of crystals. In September of 2017 NomaD moved to Hawaii as a part of his rebirth where he began recording as an artist. Within the first week of moving to Honolulu, NomaD connected with George "Fiji" Veikoso–one of the biggest Polynesian artists of out time, and easily one of the biggest names in Hawaiian reggae. Fiji has since taken NomaD under his wing as they continue to build the success of NomaD as an artist together. On November 13, 2017 NomaD broke his first single "Take It All", produced by Fiji, on radio, which became the number one requested song within four days of its release. "Take It All" stayed number one on both iHeart Radio's Island 98.5 and 93.1 Da Pa'ina for four consecutive weeks, and held a spot in the top five fir six weeks and counting. On December 16th, 2017 NomaD had his largest live performance at Hawaii's Finest 8th Anniversary Bash, where he has brought out by big brother Fiji as a special guest to close the show. On February 22, 2018 NomaD will be releasing his second single, "Perfect Timing", and then releasing his first EP come early summer.
