There’s a new folk singer/songwriter on the scene, and her name is Nora Rothman. Her debut self-titled EP will be released on July 21st, 2017, but first, she’s released the music video for her single, “Truth or Dare.” The song is an original ukulele track (my favorite – to be honest, I think the ukulele is severely under-utilized in music and I want more of it) with an interesting story behind it.
Check it out below!
Nora said, “’Truth or Dare’ was the first song I ever wrote on a ukulele. I don’t think I even knew any chords. I sat down in my childhood bedroom and three hours later it was done. I never touched it again.”
The video for “Truth or Dare” was filmed against the backdrop of a leather bear convention and rock show on Nora’s block. In the midst of trying to film the video, Nora and her videographer were interrupted by the noise from the raucous festival, so they decided to improvise and join in on the fun.
Nora Rothman has a folk soul sound described as a tantalizing mix of Sarah Vaughan, Joni Mitchell, and Frank Ocean. Her upcoming EP features three songs that showcase her original musicality, and I for one can’t wait to hear it.
Keep an eye out for the official release, and keep up with Nora on social media for more updates.
