This week we talk with up and coming, singer/songwriter, Noelle and discuss her much anticipated debut EP, 30K!
Coming from a very musical family and community on the Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory, Noelle tells us how that has shaped her as an artist and nurtured her love of music.We also chat about her decade of singing beautiful covers that have led to her huge following on youtube and how she wants to show her authentic self through social media and to the world. We even talk a little pop culture and our mutual love for watching “Euphoria.”
Canadian artist, noelle, is a 20-year-old emerging pop talent with a modern R&B edge.
noelle has been singing since she was barely old enough to walk. Initially finding her footing through YouTube, noelle amassed a following of 94.2K subscribers resulting from her viral covers of timeless classics and today’s biggest acts, most notably Post Malone and Sabrina Claudio.
noelle was raised on the Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory in Ontario, in a family and community that surrounded her with music. Her upbringing exposed her to a vast range of musical genres, from Nat King Cole and Sarah Vaughan, to the pow wow drum and native wind flute from her Indigenous roots. Just like many others, noelle’s high school years were full of highs and lows, and music quickly became her outlet. Expressing her thoughts and emotions at her piano, coupled with a reality she sought to transcend, noelle began writing her own music as a therapeutic form of self-expression. The artists’ whose words she once personalized through her covers, soon became the major influences behind her own music. After graduating high school in 2017, noelle signed her record deal with Wax Records, and has spent two years developing her sound to create a modern blend of R&B, pop, urban, and jazz influences.
noelle’s pop ballad repertoire harnesses the powerful contrast of the darkness she sees in the modern world. Coupling thought-provoking lyrics with melodies that will both emotionally and physically move her audience, her words remind you how it feels to experience the world and love as a young woman today.
