Noelie is one of the best new songwriters to emerge from the west and indeed Ireland, in years and has the voice and stage presence to match. His music has recently been described as a hybrid of John Prine, Johnny Cash & Bob Dylan by Hot Press Magazine, no mean feat! This last year seen him play alongside John Martyn, Roesy, The Saw Doctors, The Chalets, Luka Bloom, The Walls & Mundy to name but a few. His festival appearances have stolen the show.
"Ireland has yet to produce an alt.country act to bother the U.S market. If there's any justice, we've just found one". -Hot Press Magazine, 2006

.. And I need your help. Me and the band have been booked to play Dublin's Academy on Abbey Street on Friday Nov. 21st. It's the biggest gig yet for me and promises to be the best one too. Do come along on the night and help us to put the West back on the map! There'll be a bus from Cloghanover and Tuam and back, details to follow shortly on this. Meanwhile if you want to book a place on it contact firstname.lastname@example.org . It'll be a great night altogether, I can't wait.
In other news I've been recording some new songs over the last few days which went well. Me and Brian and Liam Caff, Keith Mullins, Larry and Olivia lit the fire, plugged in and pressed record. I'll need another while to get it into shape but it was a good start.
I'm off to the UK with the mighty Sawdoctors for December. I'll be opening for them on all their dates leading up to the Christmas there and then back for my own gig in the Roisin Dubh on December 21st. I'll be heading back over the Irish Sea again at the end of January. All the details can be found on www.myspace.com/noeliemcdonnell
Issie and I were both delighted to hear 'Nearly Four' getting so much airplay and we couldn't believe it when it got to number 15 in the Irish Charts. Wow! Thanks to everyone who downloaded it over the past few weeks. We are currently working on our next big hit although we've exhausted the nearly five idea at this stage and we're moving on! … Sincere thanks to all x
It's gotten awful cold hasn't it? Never mind, Christmas is coming. See ye all soon.

I've received a number of lovely comments and messages about the the recently posted songs on http://www.myspace.com/noeliemcdonnell and thought I'd just say a little bit about them and generally thank everyone who listens and has been listening over the past couple of years. So thank you! It's very encouraging to check the page and see that the songs are being heard and appreciated.
New York City is the only remaining song from the Noelie McDonnell album which was released in Ireland in Feb. 2006 ( and is still available on this page of course!! ) It's a song that people often ask me to play and represents the more solo side of what i do. With that in mind I've taken a selection of songs from demos that have been made over the past while, some of which are solo, some played with friends of mine who luckily for me are also fantastic musicians. Drifting and You Can't Give Up are the most recent songs and were recorded on a cold Tuesday evening in Nov. 2007 by John Flatley as myself, eimhin, will, larry, gert and new addition Muireann Cradock rehearsed for a christmas gig in the back of Campbell's Tavern. Winter and Broken Dishes were recorded in Pat Coyne's house in May 2007. Pat plays guitar with Sean Keane and is a world class musician and absoloute gentleman. He's got a myspace too. Check out my friends section. Finally It Won't Hurt was recorded along with nine other tracks in a day in the Hatch recording studio in England by Hugh and Ben in Sept. 2006. I had a great time there and even slept in a yert!
As I mentioned, all these new tracks are quickly made demos and were put down as a way of sketching and remembering as I hawked my guitar around the place doing gigs, trying to keep myself and hopefully a few others entertained! I'll continue to do that and let ye know where I'll be playing next. A new album is on the way. Hope you all enjoy these songs in the mean time Thanks again for lending your ears and keeping in touch. Spread the word and I'm sure I'll see ye all soon.
Lots a love, Noelie x
