Nora Meier – Passim Summer Series
June 21 @ 12:00 pm
Growing up in Portland, Oregon, Nora Meier was drawn to music at an early age. Inspired by the artists she discovered in her parents’ expansive vinyl collection, it wasn’t long before she was pestering her parents to sign her up for piano lessons.At 12 years old she fell in love with songwriting, and in 2014 a recording of her first original song Remember was uploaded to YouTube and shared by the Huffington Post.
Encouraged by her mentor Moorea Masa to pursue her love of music, Nora began seriously honing her skills as an artist throughout her teenage years. In 2017 she wrote and produced her first single, Icicles, followed by a five-track EP, With Time. In their review of the EP, Divide and Conquer writes that Meier has “a magical combination of the deep rich tone of Fiona Apple and the jazzy melodic playfulness of Melody Gardot.” Her most recent single, Harvest Song, was released in May of 2022, and is now available on all streaming platforms. These projects would not have been possible without the support of artists such as Moorea Masa, Steve Swatkins, Margaret Wehr, Josh Powell and many more. She is currently studying at The Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts.
Meier has proven an ability to connect to the heart of the individual while uniting us through the emotions that make us human.
