Nora’s debut album HUSH was released on Deutsche Grammophon in April 2018, and has toured the Netherlands in 2018/19 and worldwide in 2019/20. The album won an EDISON award in October 2018!
Working alongside celebrated guitarist Marnix Dorrestein, one of Nora’s long awaited dreams finally became reality: the redefinition of early music songs. 17th Century composers such as Monteverdi, Purcell and Dowland have provided songs with an incredible beauty that are extremely close to the pop music of today, only with a performance practice that is usually far away from the ears of this generation. With this project, Nora & Marnix place these songs in our time. Stripped of mannerisms, sung in a lower key and performed in the purest version: simple, timeless and intensely beautiful. Sometimes groovy and soulful, sometimes silent and soul piercing. Approached with the creativity of songwriters in the 21st century.
