Noora is Norway's soul sensation. Usually referred to as the Scandinavian queen of soul, her first album "Curious" sold around 50.000 in total and won Noora the Norwegian Hit Award for Best Female Artist. Her hit "Need you" was one of the first Nordic videos to spin on The Lick / MTV and was Stargates first success. Noora also won the prize for Best Live Artist after her first Norwegian tour. Her next album "All I Am", recorded in London and New York took a while to finish as Noora got ill and had to stop all recording for 2 years.
Noora Noor released her third album in Norway last year and was awarded the Norwegian Grammy for Best Female Artist in March 2010. The album entitled "Soul Deep" goes back into the roots of southern soul and reflects Noora's inspirations as an artist.
Noora tours extensively around Norway and Europe with her 9 piece band this year. The album is also released in Benelux and Italy. She has just finished a production with Royal Navy Orchestra in a soul version of Porgy & Bess.
