Nashville based singer-songwriter Noelle Toland has star-quality written all over her. Teaming up with legendary guitarist, songwriter & Blues Brother Steve Cropper (who plays guitar on the new single) for the delicate yet powerful single ‘I Want To See You Again’, you may recognise Steve’s fascinating songwriting and guitar playing from tracks such as ‘(Sittin) On the Dock of the Bay’, ‘In The Midnight Hour’, ‘Knock on Wood’ and many others.
A collaboration fans didn’t know they needed until now, the track was produced and co-written with Chris Condon (Billy Ray Cyrus’ musical director and guitarist) and recorded at the famed RCA Studios on Music Row in Nashville. Taken from a four-track EP titled ‘The Sun Will Rise’, Noelle mentions, “Hopefully this record, which I’ve long envisioned, inspires people to take chances, be bold and place bets on themselves, because that is the only thing that has gotten me through the ups and downs.”
Working alongside vocal producer Eddie Gore, who has worked with Steve Cropper, Aaron Goodvin, Joanne Janzen, Keb Mo, Jonathan Singleton and Sara Petite, the star-studded line up is best described as legendary. Featuring Maureen Murphy as the backing vocalist, Maureen has worked with Zac Brown Band, Phish, Drake White, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Nettles, Jake Wesley Rogers, Allison Russell, Gregg Allman, Dave Cobb, Brandi Carlisle, Ruby Amanfu, Keb Mo, Mickey Guyton, Breland, Beth Neilsen Champman and Jason Isbell.
Blending 90s country sensibilities with a seductive soul-pop persona, ‘I Want To See You Again” is performed effortlessly. Not only a force to be reckoned with in the music industry, Noelle also volunteers at JHPIEGO, a Johns Hopkins non-profit affiliate that focuses on maternal health in developing countries. Currently the Auction Chair for their annual gala and member of their Changemakers committee, a program aims to empower young students, Noelle is an artist you’d be proud to support.
