Biography

Dear Nora is known as the project of Katy Davidson, who is the only permanent member of the group. They are described as either indie-pop, or twee, due to the clear guitar melodies, and soft female vocals. Formed in Portland, a continuously evolving group churned out several albums, including We’ll Have a Time, Mountain Rock, and several E.P’s. They have since disbanded after their most recent album There is No Home, which was a more experimental take on the original Dear Nora sound. Leader Katy Davidson has gone on to form the band Lloyd & Michael with Marianna Ritchey, one of the other founding members of Dear Nora, and has performed/recorded most recently as Key Losers.

    Hey [deleted user] dude who asked about the king arthur song at the end of mountain rock. That was a recording of "The Navin R. Johnsons" which was a group that featured Katy Davidson, Marianna Ritchey (of The Badger King, Manta, and now Lloyd & Michael), and Jake Longstreth. I think Dave Longstreth might be singing along on that recording. They existed from like 1996-1998 mostly on Lewis & Clark College campus. They briefly flirted with campus fame. They later appeared on the 2007 compilation Grown Zone on States Rights Records along with YACHT, The Dirty Projectors, White Rainbow, Valet, Bad Weather California, Jib Kidder, High Places, Best Friends Forever, and more!
