Nora Toutain releases her debut album
Grounding Place Vol. 1
Grounding Place Vol. I is Nora Toutain’s debut album to be released October 9th, 2020 via Good People Records.
Produced by Chris Vincent, member of notable electro-soul band Busty and the Bass, the album is one half of a collection of songs that honours and celebrates her roots in her home of North Africa, the place that grounds her and where her story began.
The songs are all tied by themes of love, identity, heritage, power and celebration.
The album travels between alternative and contemporary r&b sounds, neo-soul, funk, jazz, and afro-pop.
Nora honours the Queens of her world with a her powerful and celebrative anthem "Women".
It's paired with a DIY video portraying women of different generations and different social & cultural background... women from all different walks of life, united in this authentic and intimate family party.
"I wanted to share an intimate part of my identity to invite everyone to reconnect with their heritage, and to celebrate and honour the everyday women in their lives"
Bad at Love
“Bad at Love” isn’t an anti-love song so much as it’s Nora's for authenticity and honesty in love, asking us to drop the perfectionism in relationships and to embrace the nature of human error.
Not an Interlude
“Not an Interlude” moves in a direction to speak out against injustices, particularly, the adverse power dynamics created by toxic masculinity.
