In the closing weeks of 2020, I had the privilege of take the role of Tour Manager for Nona. We kicked off the year 2020 with a strong start, in a series of shows that promised an exciting journey ahead. However, our momentum was abruptly halted in March of that year, as the world grappled with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. It wasn’t until 2022 that we could finally conclude the tour.
Nona, born in Uden in 1993, embodies the essence of a free spirit. Her honesty, outspoken nature, and open-mindedness make her a true pioneer who fearlessly follows her own path, continually pushing the boundaries. No one can dampen her enthusiasm, especially when it comes to music. This spirit shines through on her sophomore album, ‘No Tears In My Champagne,’ which is set to be released on June 17. The album showcases a more raw and confident sound, with Nona declaring, “I now have a better understanding of who I am and have found my own voice.”
