Tora is a firework display by a band with 25-year-old guitarist and vocalist Tora Dahle Aagård in front. She is a great talent who in a short time has made her mark both high and low with her unique energy, presence and playful music.
The music is set in a blues-inspired pop rock landscape. In the fall of 2018, Tora went down in history when, as the first female guitarist, she got a sponsorship agreement with British guitar manufacturer Chapman Guitars.
After two eps, Tora released its self-titled debut album in February this year. Dagbladet referred to it as a “Promising debut from a new female guitar hero”, drawing comparisons with Bonnie Raitt and Susan Tedeschi, while Adresseavisen reported that “Tora is about to find a distinctive expression while mastering the original genre. Young, talented and exploratory musicians, fronted by a skilled vocalist who has something extra to do. ”
The band was formed in Flatanger in Trøndelag in 2011 and today consists of Isak Seltveit (bass), Guri Tranås (choir), Andreas Dahle Aagård (guitar) and Magnus Galguften (drums) in addition to Tora Dahle Aagård.
Most of the songs are written by Tora, some in collaboration with Andreas Dahle Aagård.
