Biography

Noora Noor often noted "Scandinavian Queen of Soul" is finally back with the album
“Soul Deep”.
The album was released in Norway this Spring with raving reviews. Norway’s main daily newspaper VG even gave the album top score with a 6 on the dice.

Noora Noor was signed to Warner at the age of 15 after they saw her performing at a youth festival. She started working with a new production team in
Trondheim called Stargate. Their first success
single together was «Need You». A song that was
played extensively on MTV’s popular program «The Lick». Noora’s first album «Curous» got great response in several territories as the first R&B
album released by Warner Norway, and this secured release in main territories as Germany and Japan (sold 50.000 in Japan only).

Stargate got good
international contacts after producing Noora and
went on to produce S Club 7 and later Beyonce, Akon and now several of the hit US R&B songs on radio at the moment.

Noora was supposed to finish her second album, but got seriously ill with tuberculosis. The album «All I Am» was finally released 5 years after
the debut album. This album was produced partly in the UK and partly in US.
Noora has later collaborated with several other artists. She participates and has written a song on
the MadCon album which is now internationally
released by Sony Europe and Reprise US. She has done songs with Mike Scott from the Waterboys,
Jojo Pelegrino, Promoe from Sweden, Akhenathon
from France and others. She has even performed as Mary Magdalen in Jesus Christ Superstar.

Her new album «Soul Deep» was produced in San Jose, USA with Kid Andersen. Kid went to USA from Norway to play guitar but has done
several neo soul and blues releases as a producer.

The album takes Noora back to her roots to the sound of Stax and southern soul. The album is a mix between her own songs and songs by US
writers produced in Noora’s own style.

Noora is touring with her 8 piece band on festivals all Summer and Autumn.

Lyrics

Zeros

Written By: Noora Noor/ C.Dodds

I think the world is a little bit mixed up, fixed up,
On things that bring more things
You see my point is the decimal point,
Must move left before I rest my eyes
Money can’t buy me love,
No money can’t bye me no happiness, yet I still insist
I wanna make a lot of it
So finder’s keeper, looser’s preacher
Cause money is all we need now.
And if you believe that you need more to feed you
Than what you can feed in your mouth
then follow me, ‘cause I don’t have no morality,
but hey I’ve got control of the whole of humanity


Chorus.
Who’s gonna love you when the money is gone
You become a zero as you loosin` one, weeoy (repeat)
Who’s gonna be there when the money is gone
You become a zero as you loosin` one, weeoy (repeat)

I’m thinking` I become a little obsessed, to stressed,
I never could have guessed this would happen to me, so naturally,
I’ve got to make way, cause the things I own are controlling me,
Taking over my identity and can’t you see that I, I need an easier life
Money can’t, money can’t buy you love no money can’t buy you no happiness,
but if you still insist you wanna make a lot of it,
Then follow me ‘cause I don’t have no morality,
But hey I’ve got control of the whole of humanity

Chorus.
Who’s gonna love you when the money is gone
You become a zero as you loosin` one, weeoy (repeat)
Who’s gonna be there when the money is gone
You become a zero as you loosin` one, weeoy (repeat)

Why, why, why, someone help me tell me why
That when we know for sure it’s not right
We just keep on, keep on, keep on
I don’t know why, I don’t know why, I don’t know why
This people keep rushin` for this dollar signs
What happened to the best things in life,
Tell me what happened to best things in life

Chorus.
