Corinne Nora Huber is a singer, composer and multiinstrumentalist born in Aarau Switzerland. She's been performing with her main project NOJAKîN throughout Switzerland, across Europe and in the US.
Born into a musician family Corinne was surrounded by music since her early childhood. Improvisation in music, theater and dance belonged to the daily routine in this family household - her father being a passionate improviser, pianist and composer.
Corinne studied guitar, cello and piano from an early age on, followed by the double bass later on. Despite her musical roots she first decided to study literature, history and geography and to follow her other big passion: reading and writing. Right after her Bachelor Degree at the University of Basel she switched to the University of Arts in Bern to study jazz vocals and composition with Efrat Alony, Andreas Schaerer, Bert Joris, Martin Streule Frank Sikora and Django Bates. She earned her Master Degree of Arts in 2017.

In the same year SRF DRS2 offered NOJAKîN a studio deal to record their first album "Silent Smile". 2016 Corinne got awarded the Werkjahr prize by the Aargauer Kuratorium and spent half a year in New York, soaking in the creative energy and artistic vibes the metropolis offers. In 2017 NOJAKîN participated in the Suisse Diagonales Jazz Festival among 9 other selected bands. In 2018 NOJAKîN released their second album "Perfection in a Bird" which gained attention and reviews throughout Europe. Corinne was given an artist residency by the Aargauer Kuratorium in 2018 and will move to London in 2019 where she will broaden her musical horizon and explore another major cultural city.
