Nora Rothman released her critically acclaimed EP ‘Nothing New,’ a confessional body of work that chronicled the singer / songwriter’s own experiences in the Los Angeles music and film industry at the height of the #MeToo movement. The now Seattle-based artist is returning with her follow up to the EP – a debut album titled enough.
Coming July 31, Rothman’s enough represents a new chapter for the artist, one in which she explores her own self-empowerment. This theme is represented in the project from the ground up as this is Rothman’s first self-produced body of work. Today, we’re getting a glimpse into the album with single “borderline” Ft. Berlin-based artist Blush Wilson. A 2020 rework of the Madonna classic, Nora Rothman’s “borderline” takes “what is really fun about a pop-song and explores the dark underbelly of lyrics.” Stripped of its bubblegum feel, this poignant rendition of “borderline” is a more sobering perspective on unrequited love earnestly delivered via Rothman’s expressive vocal arrangement.
Seeking to raise marginalized voices in the music industry by creating art with womxn all around the world, Rothman has made appearances on The Future is Female Spotify playlist; at Hotel Café in Los Angeles; Rockwood Music Hall in NYC; and Fremont Abbey in Seattle. Her lyric video for “Truth Or Dare” from Pakistani artist Areeba Siddique was celebrated by Yahoo! Music and Teen VOGUE.
As for her activism, in 2016, Nora Rothman worked as a Field Organizer on the Clinton campaign. The day of Trump’s inauguration, she made a promise to continue her fight for women’s rights through music, and partnered with various organizations from EMILY’S List to Planned Parenthood. In 2018, Nora expanded her equity work by founding Earhart, a community uplifting female, trans, and gender nonconforming music artists. Since then, Earhart has celebrated over 100 different artists through their weekly playlist and interview series including Alex Mali, Shea Diamond, Dorian Elecrta, and Siaira Shawn.
