Nora Lilith is taking a DIY approach to her music— writing, producing, and mixing everything herself. Her eclectic, mostly genre-less, sound is a compound of various lo-fi electronic tones ranging from experimental bedroom pop style beats to house, r&b and jazz. While she has been singing her whole life, she started teaching herself how to use Ableton merely two years ago. She seeks to truly embrace her naiveté in the field with her unconventional production and writing process— often using found sounds and her own voice to create instrumentation and textured soundscapes.[+]
Having grown up with one foot in Berlin, Germany and another in Austin, TX, Nora reflects the movement and disparate nature of her own life onto her music. She draws inspiration from her given name and its connection to mythology, as the character Lilith in Jewish/Mesopotamian folklore stands to offer a sense of strength in darkness and idiosyncratic liberation. By embracing the symbol of Lilith, Nora seeks to continuously reinvent herself and let curiosity and her contemplative malaise guide her.
Nora Lilith was one half of the now-defunct indie electronic project called N!M, whose single ‘Face’ was 3rd on Spotify’s US viral 50 chart and 4th on the Global viral 50 charts. N!M has received coverage from blogs like Earmilk and IndieShuffle, as well as played shows like Sylvan Esso’s afterparty at Stubb’s in Austin and festivals like ACL and SXSW.[–]
