Nora O'Connor (2 Albums, 1 Tracks)
Nora O'Connor was born and raised as a first-generation Irish-American on the scrappy south side of Chicago. Mugs down "dere" tend to shoot first, ask questions later—and always get the mother effing job DONE. The doe-eyed Miss Nora is no exception. In addition to being one of the most versatile and sought-after singers in town—she is also a legendary bartender, a midwife's assistant (doula) and an ordained reverend. Whether you need to be serenaded, soused, birthed, or hitched, O'Connor has the goods, and how.Nora first came to our attention as guitarist/vocalist for the late, great glam-country outfit The Blacks. Since then, she has recorded and performed with about a gazillion people, among them Andrew Bird, The New Pornographers, Jeff Tweedy, Archer Prewitt, The Aluminum Group, Janet Bean, Chris Mills, Neko Case, and soul legends Otis Clayand Mavis Staples. Yow!!! All these talents must know something about the dulcet tones of Ms. O'Connor, and you should too.Nora is now the mom to two handfuls of cuteness, so she doesn't play out much, so when she does, we recommend you get out there and see her.
