Nora O’Connor is a Chicago-based musician whose vocal talents are the secret weapon behind some of the city’s best performances and recordings. Most recently, Nora teamed up with local label, Pravda Records and released her third solo album, My Heart in October 2022. O’Connor isn’t new to working solo. She released Cerulean Blue (Uncommon Underground Records) in 1996 and Til the Dawn (Bloodshot Records) in 2004 before she carved out a livelihood making other people’s songs sound better. She has no intention of stopping—in fact 2021 found her back out on the road with Neko Case and The New Pornographers. Nora has toured and recorded with Andrew Bird, The Decemberists, Iron and Wine, Mavis Staples, Robbie Fulks and the list goes on. But her recent solo shows and tours stretched her ambition, moving her to experiment with her voice, to play with new sounds and textures, and to envision a next chapter in her long and dazzling career; one where she takes her rightful seat at the table of the luminaries she has supported for all these years. SARA JEAN STEVENS Music for the loners, the hopeless romantics, and dreamers. Songs as dusty and warm as growing up on a horse farm in the flatlands of Illinois. Sara Jean Stevens has played in other people's bands for a long while, and is finally sharing her own songs with the world.
Admission Fee $20 - $25.
