"Philosopher diva" Nora York is an adventurous singer-songwriter with a drive to explore the human condition.
Nora York is an adventurous jazz singer and performance artist whose genre-crossing work defies easy categorization. With a sultry, soulful voice and hypnotic stage presence, York has carved out a territory all her own — call her a "singer-songwriter-truthteller" (the Village Voice did). She brings a witty and literate twist to her performances, recombining songs and merging genres in thought-provoking ways.
Her most recent CD is What I Want (ArtistShare), and her latest performance project, Furtiva Lagrima (secret tear), explores classical operatic repertoire through the lens of pop, country and jazz.
"An ingenious, radical, extravagant talent."The New Yorker
