I've just been nominated for two WAMI's (Wisconsin Area Music Industry) awards - both Female Vocalist of the Year and Rising Star in the same year!!
The music video for my original song "Dimples Filled With Lies" is getting National television airplay on The Country Network!!!!!!!! and I was recently named "Breaking Out Artist of the Week".
I am a singer/songwriter and recently graduated high school. I love Country music and am influenced by Miranda Lambert & Carrie Underwood. I am honored to be chosen the 2012 "Rising Star" by my peers in the Wisconsin Area Music Industry. I am also the 2011 Wisconsin State Winner in the Texaco Country Showdown. I play many shows in the Milwaukee area. I’ve recently opened 3x for Katie Armiger and also opened for national acts Paul Thorn, Turnpike Troubadours and Sixpence None The Richer. I also played the last two years at Summerfest; including 4 times this year at the Tiki Hut. I’ve been featured locally on TV and radio. I've made seven appearances on The Morning Blend.
I recently released my second CD, “Run Away With Me”. I wrote all ten songs and co-produced most of the tracks. The songs “Run Away With Me” and “Dimples Filled With Lies” were recorded in Nashville and feature musicians that tour with Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, Darius Rucker and Martina McBride. My video for "Dimples" is being featured Nationally on The Country Network. “First Heartbreak” finished in the top 20, out of 700 songs, in the Great Lakes Songwriting contest.
I released my first CD “Red Chuck Taylors” in May 2009 when I was 14 years old. I wrote or co-wrote with my friends, all 10 songs. My home music video for “Don’t Slow Down” finished in the Sweet Sixteen, out of 600 videos, in Country Music Television’s Music City Madness competition. I was featured nationally on CMT and also on local ABC, FOX and NBC newscasts. I also did a home video for the title track.
My songs are featured on FM106.1 Sunday night Home Made Jams radio show. I’ve performed in Nashville and play weekly at the two Brookfield Potbelly Sandwich Works and at many venues around the area. Visit www.NoraCollins.com for more information and a performance schedule.
“Run Away With Me” and all my music is available at iTunes, Amazon, cdbaby and at my gigs.
