Nashville resident singer/songwriter Noelle Toland wants to update and make her own old-school country music. While many may think the genre’s audience is restricted only to the South, Toland, who comes from 2,000 residents city in North Plains, Oregon confirmation that simply is not always true. “We tailgated, horsed around on farms, and loved the heartbreak behind the stories we grew up listening to,” shares Toland, who states completely with the genre.
By going back to her roots and visiting again the music from her youth, Toland started the unique alchemy that is the 2021 EP, “The Sun Will Rise.” The four-song EP, which was recorded at the famous RCA Studios in Nashville, Tennessee, and was produced by Chris Condon, is a mix of 90’s country and invities all types of souls to her music. It showcases the earth like and power of classic country music with staple instruments like pedal steel and contributions from legends such as guitarist Steve Cropper, founding member of the Stax Records House Band and Booker T. And the M.G.’s.
Toland is delighted to have such an inspirational team, whom she grew up listening to, and is thankful for the chance to make this 90’s country influenced record, which is an appreciation to admired artists like Trisha Yearwood and Faith Hill. “Hopefully this record, which I’ve long envisioned, inspires people to take chances, be bold, and place bets on themselves,” she explains, “because that is the only thing that has gotten me through ups and downs.”
At a time when the world is in a nonstop state of fear, Toland’s calmness when it comes to surfing the wave of life is just what others need to hear.
On January 27, 2023 Toland put out her latest single “Limbo.” If you would like to find out more about the great and talented Noelle Toland then please check out her website (https://www.noelletoland.com/).
