Her debut EP, NUBYA’s 5IVE, released in 2017, was hailed as “exceptional” by The Vinyl Factory and her second project, WHEN WE ARE (2018), has earned her critical acclaim, the title track of which was named one of NPR’s Best Songs of 2018.

Born and raised in north London, Garcia began her music education at Camden Music, before joining Tomorrow’s Warriors in her late teens, and completing her training at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music. She went on to perform in small gigs and impromptu jazz sessions around London, her audience growing organically, and eventually began headlining her own shows. Garcia also performs as a member of a number of group projects. She collectively founded septet NÉRIJA, later joining MAISHA, a sextet fronted by Jake Long, and the THEON CROSS TRIO. Since 2018, Garcia has been touring internationally, playing in venues across Europe, Australia, India, and the United States.
