Nomi Ruiz is a singer/songwriter from New York City who currently leads the dance/pop/r&b group Jessica 6.

Nomi released her debut album Lost In Lust on her own independent label Park Side Records.

She toured extensively with the band in support of the album, singing her song contributions as well as those of Antony Hegarty.
