Featured On Upcoming Album, enough, Out July 31
Earlier this month, we got the first glimpse into the forthcoming album from singer / songwriter Nora Rothman with new single “borderline” ft. Blush Wilson. Praised by Atwood Magazine as “Gloriously brooding and effortlessly effervescent,” “borderline” sets the tone of Rothman’s work that explores the “dark underbelly” of pop music and delivers it with a riveting combination of mesmerizing vocal arrangement and stripped back production. Today we’re getting another preview of the album, titled enough, with the project’s second release “groves.”
enough embodies Rothman’s arrival at her own self-empowerment, a theme that is present throughout the album from the ground up as this is her first self-produced project. Only after years of soul-searching and reflection did enough come into existence, and LP cut “groves” in particular represents a life changing moment in this journey. A recounting of a very serious car accident Rothman was involved in, “groves” is a poignant expression of the artist attempting to grapple with the near fatal crash and her life flashing before her eyes. An electronic pop meets indie folk production, “groves” puts Rothman’s rich vocals on full display as well as underscores her emerging talents as a multi-faceted music producer. Exemplifying the sonic style of Nora Rothman, “groves” makes clear why she has earned comparisons to songwriting legends including Joni Mitchell and Norah Jones.
enough follows critically acclaimed EP ‘Nothing New,’ a confessional body of work that chronicled the singer / songwriter’s own experiences in the Los Angeles music and film industry at the height of the #MeToo movement. A common thread in Rothman’s music is her desire to raise marginalized voices in the music industry by creating art with womxn all around the world. Rothman has made appearances on The Future is Female Spotify playlist; at Hotel Café in Los Angeles; Rockwood Music Hall in NYC; and Fremont Abbey in Seattle. Her lyric video for “Truth Or Dare” from Pakistani artist Areeba Siddique was celebrated by Yahoo! Music and Teen VOGUE.
As for her activism, in 2016, she worked as a Field Organizer on the Clinton campaign. The day of Trump’s inauguration, she made a promise to continue her fight for women’s rights through music, and partnered with various organizations from EMILY’S List to Planned Parenthood. In 2018, Nora expanded her equity work by founding Earhart, a community uplifting female, trans, and gender nonconforming music artists. Since then, Earhart has celebrated over 100 different artists through their weekly playlist and interview series including Alex Mali, Shea Diamond, Dorian Elecrta, and Siaira Shawn
