Kora

20th February, 2022

At just 20 years of age, Kora Naughton is proving herself as an artist with drive and determination.

 

In 2015, she was forced to give up her passion of cheerleading - a sport she had loved since she was 7 years old. It was during this time she turned to music. Kora taught herself to play guitar, write songs and sing. This gave her the freedom to channel her emotions through music.

 

Though it wasn’t until attending the CMAA Junior Academy of Country music in 2017, that she truly began her career in the country music industry.

 

In late 2017, she was awarded the Female Rising Star award at Mildura’s Independent Country Music Awards for her debut single, Wrong.

 

Only one year after the Junior Academy, Kora released her debut album, Ride or Die.

 

Kora has opened shows for some of the greats in Australian Country Music including, Travis Collins, Amber Lawrence, Tania Kernaghan, Christie Lamb, Catherine Britt & Hayley Jensen and has performed alongside the likes of Bill Chambers and James Blundell.

 

March 2021 saw the release of Kora’s latest album Nineteen. A testament to her skills as a song writer, Nineteen features 13 tracks, 11 of which were penned by Kora herself.

 

Preceded by four hit singles, Kora says, “Nineteen is a celebration of my final teenage year. It’s a way of looking back at the last seven years of my life and remembering all of the defining moments that have brought me to where I am today”.

 

Kora is performing from 1pm on Sunday 30 January 2022.
