Winnipeg singer-songwriter, Sierra Noble is celebrating the release of her full length album, City of Ghosts. After 2 years in New York City followed by 2 years in Nashville, “home is where the heart is” has never meant more to the local singer-songwriter who has moved back to her hometown to release her latest batch of songs. “This album consists of songs that I have written over the past 8 years, some dating back to 2008 all the way through to 2016… it is a musical scrapbook, if you will, of my life since I released the Possibilities EP.
Sierra Noble has been a part of the Canadian music scene since a very young age, beginning her touring career when she was only 14 years old as a solo Old-Time fiddle player. Her evolution as an artist brought her to a journey of singing and songwriting debuted by a song called “Possibility”, which went on to be featured on television shows such as One Tree Hill and Switched at Birth. She credits that song to be what opened the door to her opening for international legends Bon Jovi and Paul McCartney.
The newest release was produced in her hometown by Murray Pulver (Doc Walker, Barenaked Ladies) and features the same musicians Noble has performed live with for years including Ariel Posen on guitar, Paul Yee on bass, and Daniel Roy on drums as well as special guests, Joey Landreth (The Bros. Landreth) and Alexa Dirks (Chic Gamine, Begonia).
“This album started with a text to my friend Murray Pulver saying ‘Hey, do you want to produce my record?’ Though I have nothing against either, there was no label or management involvement in the making of this album, I did it myself, though certainly not without immense help from a lot of amazing people. It was funded by an amazing fan response to a Kickstarter campaign, and a recording grant from Manitoba Film and Music.”
Noble notes that it was important to her that this album was done in Winnipeg, surrounded by people who have been an active part of her evolution as an artist. "Winnipeg has a very special sound and a never ending well of talent, and it is important to me to share that with the world as best I can.”
On her new six-track EP Possibilities, Noble sings with a heavenly sweet yet confident voice comparable to the likes of Norah Jones or Colbie Caillat. Bruce Leperre"
