Nora Mac discovered her song-writing capabilities whilst attending a creative therapy group at a clinic for eating disorder recovery in 2016. Through writing poetry, she discovered a love for lyrics which then turned into songs with the help of a producer friend. From one musical connection, she has grown her network organically through a pure love for music. After taking her debut release to Open Mic UK in 2016 and winning the regional finals, she developed the confidence to pursue music full time. Over the last 5 years she's gained support and fans from the likes of Joshua Alamu (Vocal Coach to Little Mix & Rita Ora), Timi Dakolo (Africa's answer to Michael Bublé), House Gospel Choir & Jordan Lee (Hits Radio DJ). 100K+ streams and a strong support network later, she's gearing up for Nora Mac 2.0 in 2022 with more dance tracks and live performances.

I am a session drummer based in London, UK and have by now performed with a variety of acts, from philharmonic and symphonic bands, to function, tribute and original bands and artists. Throughout the last 17 years (plus the early years of table top gigs!), I have gathered extensive experience both in the studio and performing live in a variety of music genres and styles, which spread from classical and folk to pop, blues, soul, indie, jazz, rock and metal music, among others. Some of the names I've played drums (and sometimes BV's) for include L.A. PEACH, The Richard Smith Piano Trio, Just Like Honey, Anthony James, Elliott Millman, Izzie Naylor, Abi Farrell, I Talk To Strangers, RESET Function Band, What The Floyd, among others. I was also a key percussionist in the Philharmonic of Arrabal as well as in the Leiria Symphonic Band. Between these, I offer remote a drum recording service, I write and produce my own music, and also teach drums.
I met the Jamma crew at a gig in Manchester, and after getting to know them was invited to be the regional 'Jambassador' for Essex, UK. As an artist it's been great and they really helped me to push my latest single. As a 'Jambassador; they sent me a ton of free merch and personalised business cards and pay for me to check out gigs in my region to sign up artists and venues! I also was invited to perform on their professionally filmed podcast series, 'The Jamma Show' which was not only great fun but also a great way to get my music out to my fans!
We have recently signed up to Jamma and love that we can have a dedicated page for our band and also individual pages allowing us to advertise ourselves for solo work and showcase our material as a group and as separate band members. It's also great to be able to find potential new band members and stand in DEP musicians as and when we need them

I registered with Jamma before the launch and I was lucky enough to perform at their '331' launch event. Since going live I have used the website to build an artist page and upload all my content as well as connect to find paid gigs! It's super easy to use and they have always been there to support me whenever needed. Not only have I found paid work, but I have also been featured on podcasts and various special marketing projects which have been great for exposure, especially in these uncertain times. Jamma also takes 0% commission on anything I earn through the platform, and it's even free to use right now!
