Thank you for stopping by my page!
Where Did Nora Go has been my alias since late 2011. I’m a Danish singer, musician and composer and I make alternative, atmospheric Art Pop.
“Special, even peculiar. But worth every moment you spend with her.“
“Music that sounds like something from another world”

WDNG first debuted with the release of the EP “Away, Away, Away” in 2012. Since then I released two highly acclaimed albums, “Where Did Nora Go” in 2013 and “Shimmer” in 2014, both of which appeared on German labels. My voice and music has been compared to artists such as Antony Hegarty, Björk, Ane Brun, Agnes Obel and Kate Bush and in 2014 I was nominated by Danish GAFFA as “Danish Female Artist of the Year”. Also I’ve toured extensively in Denmark, Germany and the United States, playing more than 80 concerts.
“Astrid Nora’s vocals are some of the most unique to be found
in Danish music at this time.
It is strong and yet so vulnerable”
A few years have gone by throwing myself wholeheartedly into motherhood with the arrival of my twin daughters in April 2015.
BUT – I have a new EP coming out later this year – Nov 22nd to be specific, with 1st single emerging Sept 6th, so stay tuned!
I’m so deeply happy and grateful to be able again to share my music and voice with you – I’ve been longing tremendously, but the time and energy had to be right again.
“Overall a brilliant master
class shown by an artist
who is on the brink of domination”

❤Astrid Nora aka Where Did Nora Go
“Astrid Nora shows remarkable
With a talent of this magnitude, there is reason to be optimistic.”
“At times there’s not many
grander artists out there than Nora.
Her vocals contain a story within, the tone is so thought provoking and insightful,
you’re just left mesmerized by her power to engage.”

HOW THE NAME WHERE DID NORA GO CAME ABOUT:
“Where Did Nora Go” is inspired by Henrik Ibsen’s play “A Doll’s House” (1879). As a little girl I was named after the main character Nora from this play. The first story in our time about an incredibly strong woman, who leaves her home; her husband and children, to discover who she truly is beyond all cultural norms and expectations. The lyrical universe of my music centers around this theme; the quest for emancipation; reckoning with the past and the conventions as well as the longing to find one’s own path in life; finding a ‘home’.
