Noel Boland is an up and coming country singer / songwriter taking the Irish country scene by storm.
Living among the beautiful Wicklow hills in Ireland, he is no stranger to the music scene and has been gigging in venues throughout the country for over 10 years.
However, in early 2020 Noel decided it was time to start recording and releasing his own material and has hit the ground running since.
From an early age, Noel had a passion for American country music and is influenced by many of his favorite artists such as Garth Brooks, Keith Urban, George Jones and George Strait. You can hear both old and new styles reflected in his writing style and vocals.
In early 2020 Noel released two original songs which caught the attention of radio stations nationwide. Towards the latter end of 2020 Noel’s dream came true when ‘Always in My Heart’, an original penned song written in memory of his late mother, went straight to No.1 in the charts.
"I am so blown away by the feedback from the public, DJs and music peers. It is a dream come true and has given me the drive to keep pursuing music like never before".
In December 2020 Noel won ‘Best Male Country Pop Vocal’ at the FP Country Music Awards. All in all, you could say 2020 was an amazing year from start to finish and in 2022 Noel claimed another award for 'Best Original Country Song,
Noel’s last four original songs ‘Always In My Heart’, ‘Out Of My Mind’, ‘Heart Don't Lie’ and ‘Again With You’ have all hit the No.1 spot in the charts with phenomenal radio and TV response. As a result of this, in early 2022, Noel signed his first publishing deal with renowned Irish company Bardis Music Co. Ltd.
Noel was crowned winner of the ‘2022 Cowboys & Heroes - Search for a Country Star’ competition with another original song, ‘This Thing’, co-written with none other than country music sensation Johnny Brady. This is a great upbeat song, with Keith Urban vibes throughout, and is due for release later this year. Noel is a huge fan of the Irish country music star and said it was a great honor to write a song with him as well as appearing at BradyFest In March and partaking in the songwriters round with the man himself.
‘This Thing’ was produced by the exceptionally talented Canadian singer / songwriter, and friend, Dan Washburn. The music was cut in Nashville by Chris Leuzinger, who has been a guitarist with Garth Brooks for over 30 years. Chris is currently on tour with Garth Worldwide. Noel has also had Garths Fiddle Player Jimmy Mattingly play on his recent material.
Earlier this year, Noel also penned a song with Nathan Carter’s Manager, John Farry. This song, along with all other original penned songs, will be included on Noel’s upcoming album.
Next in line for Noel is a duet with former Honky Tonk Angels member, Bernie Heaney. Bernie, and her husband Brian, have been a massive support to Noel throughout his music journey and is truly privileged to get to do this duet with her.
Later this year Noel’s debut album is due for release. This will include 10 original country songs with something for everyone - this is one not to be missed! You can find Noel’s music on all the major platforms so why not give him a follow on his social media platforms for further updates.
