If you walk away learning one new name from 2018, let it be that of Chicago rapper and poet Noname. A compelling storyteller, Noname took her time releasing a follow-up to her critically acclaimed mixtape Telefone (2016) — a project in which she manages to deliver both a melancholic song about abortion, “Bye Bye Baby,” and a hazy summer anthem tailor-made for dreaming, “Diddy Bop.” Two years later, her debut record, Room 25, was born. It finds the 27-year-old with a sharpened craft and, once again, performing with a full band which gives soulful wings to her effortless flow.

Noname will perform at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 2 at the Majestic Theatre; 4140 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-833-9700; majesticdetroit.com; Tickets are $25-$30.
