Sierra Noble has been one of Winnipeg, Manitoba’s most promising young talents since releasing her first instrumental fiddle album at age 14. Well known for most of her life as a fiddle champion who breezes through numerous styles of music with stunning ease, Sierra’s breadth of experience in music and in life at 25 is nothing short of impressive.
But, she has never been one to rest on her laurels. Encouraged by fellow musicians to sing, at age 18 Sierra decided to try her hand at writing songs. Her journey as a singer-songwriter has proved to have a promising start with her debut critically acclaimed 6 song EP release, “Possibilities” (2009). The single, "Possibility" was played on radio stations across Canada with her music video for the song debuting in the Top 20 Countdown on CMT Canada.
Sierra's music grabbed the attention of the Television industry as well. Her music has been heard in hit TV shows such as; One Tree Hill, (Possibility and I Can See), Life Unexpected, (Possibility), Switched at Birth (Human After All and I Can See), and Parenthood, (Human After All). Most recently, she was asked to write the score and title track ("All The Things I Do") for the documentary-film "40 Weeks."
In 2011, Sierra was the first Canadian ever to be named the winner of "Best Song" and "Best Performance" at the prestigious 52nd Annual Viña Del Mar International Song Festival in Chile in front of 100 million in Spanish speaking countries around the globe with her song "Try Anything", A song that she wrote while still in high school.
Although relatively new to the American public, Sierra's music has taken her around the world, touring in Asia, Europe, North and South America. Sierra’s shows captivate audiences with compelling mood setting performances creating an atmosphere where stunning instrumentals and hook laden Pop-Americana songs exist in perfect harmony. Those same performances have brought opportunities such as opening for Paul McCartney, Kid Rock, Bon Jovi, as well as being a features performer in the Opening Ceremonies of the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, and for the Queen of England
Sierra now lives in Nashville and is an artist to watch for with her full length album, "City of Ghosts" with a brand new sound produced by Murray Pulver and Alex Wong, to be released early 2016.
For the first year of my life I heard the sound of virtuoso Romanian violinist, Joan Harea practicing for 8 hours a day through the wall of the duplex in Ottawa.
And then we moved to Winnipeg so my sisters could accept a scholarship to the Royal Winnipeg Ballet.
I started begging to play as soon as I could put the words together.
When I was 7 I held a violin for the first time and life made sense.
When I was 8 I started my lifelong journey of learning the ancient fiddle tunes of the native people of the Canadian prairies.
By 14 I was traveling the world playing this mysterious music to people across Canada, the US, and Europe.
I reluctantly wrote my first song when I was 17 and recorded it with 3 others on an EP that would 2 years later lead me to opening for Paul McCartney, and Bon Jovi, and would also send me to New York.
Music has been my life since day one, and my savior...it's not always an easy friend to have but it is always a true one.
My bio has some impressive noted events on it that I will be forever grateful for, but I'm most thankful that my career for the most part has been organic evolution, allowing me to build meaningful relationships with the people who listen to my music, and allowing me to grow and evolve as an artist freely.
All I want to do in this life is connect with people. Music is my favourite way of connecting, and my favourite form of connection...second to hugging.
