"Be careful, now...Sierra Noble's voice and melodies will blissfully enter through your ears, then head right down and steal your heart..." - Martin Rivas, Acclaimed NYC Singer/Songwriter
Sierra Noble has been one of Winnipeg, Manitoba’s most promising young talents since releasing her first instrumental album at age 14. Well known for most of her life as a fiddle virtuoso who breezes through numerous styles of music with stunning ease, Sierra’s breadth of experience in music and in life at 23 is impressive.
But, she has never been one to rest on her laurels. Encouraged by fellow musicians to sing, at age 17 Sierra decided to try her hand at writing songs. Her journey as a singer-songwriter has proven to be off to a promising start. Inspired by everything from the folk styling’s of the great Patty Griffin, to Top 40 hits from the last 6 decades, Sierra picked up the guitar and quickly began honing a unique style and voice of her own.
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 songs exist in perfect harmony. Those same performances have brought opportunities such as opening for Paul McCartney, Kid Rock, Bon Jovi, as well as performing in the Opening Ceremonies of the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, and for the Queen of England
Her songs speak of universal themes of love, longing, and discovery wrapped in infectious melodies and delivered with sincerity and conviction. Her voice, a study in gorgeous contradictions – wonderfully pure yet layered with subtle, smoky tones. "...Subtle yet deep, emotionally moving and soul-satisfying!" said a Texas fan about the young songstress.
Her folk/pop style is evident with the 2009 critically acclaimed 6 song EP release, “Possibilities”. 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. 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 most recently, Parenthood, (Human After All).
Carrying on momentum into 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.
Sierra’s youtube channel has over 500,000 uploaded views. Additionally, the track, Human After All debuted at #6 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart on the heels of the TV broadcast of the Parenthood episode ("Missing") which featured the song in it’s entirety.
Sierra is now spending most of her time in New York City where a fateful chance meeting with legendary Grammy Award winning producer, Russ Titelman (Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Steve Winwood, Randy Newman, Rickie Lee Jones) fueled an immediate creative chemistry.
Sierra Noble is an artist to watch for with her full length album, produced by Russ Titelman to be released in early 2013.
Sierra dedicates much of her time to various causes, from her involvement with the global fight to ban landmines, her work with welcoming war-affected refugee families to Canada, as well as programs for inner-city youth in Winnipeg, all in an effort to make the world a better place. She has been presented with many humanitarian and volunteer awards for her substantial accomplishments including the Inaugural Queen’s Golden Jubilee Medal but Sierra’s greatest satisfaction comes not from awards but from seeing the changes in people’s lives and the impact that the voices of youth can make in the world. It is no surprise that much of Sierra’s inspiration comes from the words of Gandhi, "You must be the change that you wish to see in the world."
