Lost Girls is a songwriting project that spans the last 12 years of my life. Many of the songs are about women. The stories range from personal accounts & family background to historical documentation of obscure women in time.

Naomi Bessette is a songwriter, violinist, performance artist, photographer, illustrator and mixed-media artist.
Her songwriting project 'Lost Girls' repesents a body of work that spans across more than a decade.
These songs tell the stories of forgotten women, deal with personal traumas, travel down dusty Texas roads and slip in and out of magical realism.
Naomi resides outside of Austin in Lockhart, TX where she heads up a community music school in a big yellow Victorian house on the town square called Sunflower and Friends.
Debut Album - Recording Now in Progress
