Somewhere between the layers of New York concrete and the infinite celestial universe, Noosa finds a place to portray a sense of lightness, honesty, and wonder in her music, coined by her as “fairy-pop”. It is an arrangement of nature interspersed with pop music that gives Noosa her free-flowing and memorable sound.
The creation of Noosa began when her song “Mirrors in the Moonlight” was passed along to producer/songwriter Mickey Valen, who transformed it into the first single and catalyst, “Fear of Love”. Upon releasing their first track online, the song went to #1 on Hype Machine’s most popular chart almost instantly, making it the first of many. The proceeding self-titled EP continued make waves across the blogosphere, garnering rave reviews from a number of popular music blogs including Perez Hilton, The Music Ninja, and Arjan Writes. One year later, Noosa’s independently released, original songs had accumulated over 2.5 million plays online. “Sail”, from the EP, was used in the Kellogg’s Special K “Carefree Summers” 2013 campaign across Europe.
The EP is a five-track journey across the musical spectrum, which clearly underlines Noosa’s versatility. With one foot on the dance floor and the other on a moonlit shore, Noosa’s haunting vocals transport listeners to a magical place.
It was during a visit to Noosa, Australia that she was inspired to take on the roll of storyteller and write her first song. “It sort of just clicked in that one moment, in that one little town. There must have been some sort of soul awakening magic in those raindrops. I could see my life coming together in a way I pictured, but never deemed possible. Fantasy seemed tangible and I just knew that songwriting would be my way of translating my spirit to the world. It’s like nature and humanity was handing me the key to myself,” says Noosa about her pilgrimage to the art of songwriting. Noosa’s style is informed by lifelong expression as a fine artist. “I don’t just hear the music, I see it, and compose as though I’m painting a canvas.”
“Each person’s life is their own fantasy. You can make it up as you go along, however you like. I’m creating a window into my own. I like taking people to a places they’ve never been before.”
