Born Carter Davis on April 29, 2004 and raised in the suburbs of Portland, Oregon – is a teenage musician, rapper, and songwriter who has made a respectable persona in the modern music industry under the artist name NORD. While the recent college freshman is now studying audio engineering as a professional career skill, he is also a frequent and generous contributor to the progress of humanitarian efforts in less-fortunate geographical locations around the globe. In a recent article published by New York Weekly, Davis’s efforts were detailed as financial assistance in the development of a nonprofit independent all-girls school campus in South Africa. In a follow-up press release published by Hudson Weekly pertaining to the charity project, the previously consolidated building plans were successfully carried out, and the all-girls education campus has been expanded by an effective ten percent as of February.
In addition to NORD’s humanitarian efforts across the world, the Oregon rapper and songwriter is leaving a lasting influential impact in the crowded world of digital music production and distribution. Industry-notable collaborators such as Addison Rae, Rebecca Black, Drake, 21 Savage, and Ice Spice have been repeated clients of Carter’s assistive songwriting contributions, which led to Davis becoming a nine-time RIAA Gold and Platinum Certified musician. As an independent musician publishing his own Pacific Northwestinfused Hip Hop and R&B sound to major streaming services such as Spotify, the eighteen-year-old Oregon talent has gained a total of one million followers on his Instagram profile and amassed more than twenty million unique listens across his musical catalog since 2021.
