Adriana Evans' 1997 self-titled debut was critically acclaimed but commercially panned, leaving her disenchanted with the music industry. This led to a seven year hiatus in Evans' musical career, followed by the limited sophomore release, Nomadic.

The album draws its inspiration from many genres of music including samba, reggae, rock and hip-hop, with soul firmly rooted at the base.
