Noel is a writer of songs and stories rather than a performer. Inspired by a diverse range from Leonard Cohen to Jason Isbell the songs took years to find their voice . Noel’s songs talk about the struggles , celebrations and tensions of everyday life . Stories about cancer and homelessness, addictions , love , loss and troubled relationships. These songs are led by the lyrics and are a mix of folk , country and blues . As it says in the song ‘ the voices that sing in this head’ the aim for Noel is to get the stories told and the voices heard.
