“I’ve Changed” is a song about the passage of time, about confession and reconciliation, about change and disappearance, about the search for light and the feeling of home, about the power of unconditional love and doubts that obscure it – about the essential and the insignificant.
Nora Anna herself tells “I wrote this song at the beginning of the pandemic not knowing how long this state of the world would continue but already then I felt the need to reevaluate what are the things most important in my life.
This song is a bit like the river of thoughts that flows in my head jumping from one matter to the other but in the end everything is connected and I come to a conclusion which I knew all along. I think this song represents the slightly cloudy and nostalgic days of our lives when we feel the need to change something and try to become a better version of ourselves and I’m confident to say that for me these are the days that make life worth living.”
Nora Anna is a voice that soothes, engages, surprises, makes you fly, meditate, plunge in a lake of melancholy, wander away somewhere deep inside your thoughts and then rise and fall in love with the little moments and pleasures of everyday life again. She is a young talented singer-songwriter with an open heart and mind who’s already familiar with international audiences, having played in multiple gigs around the UK, France and Latvia, as well as in festivals like Weyfest, Staycation and Always The Sun festival. Recently she graduated studies in England and now continues her music career there performing both her own songs and jazz repertoire.
Nora Anna’s music is as rich as her personality. She says her songs are ’’little nostalgic story-telling hybrids” because they have a bit of everything – pop, jazz, blues, folk and most importantly, a story that will make you drift into your thoughts.
You can hear the influence of her inspirations Joni Mitchell, Carole King, Matt Corby and others, but first and foremost – Norah Jones: “I still remember those warm summer evenings when my aunt would make the tastiest meal ever after an adventurous day out with my friends. We would just sit on the terrace and listen to Norah’s smooth vocal as she sang “If I were a painter, I would paint my reverie..”
In many ways, Nora Anna embodies the empowered modern woman – fragile, yet strong at the same time, intelligent across spheres, a truly international soul who welcomes new cultures and experiences, and travels whenever she can.
Currently she is working on recording her first album and “I’ve Changed” is the first single from it.
