At the Pavilion, Carey's Lane, Cork
The B-Girl With A Golden Voice
At a time where Female artists of substance seem to be few and far between. Emerges a woman who has established a reputation for her mesmerizing stage presence, and inspirational voice. Noelle Scaggs illustrates the magic of true artistry. Acclaimed for her contributions as the female lead vocalist of Los Angeles based Soul Septet, The Rebirth. Noelle has contributed to film soundtracks, writing, and singing in such films as Walk Hard, The Nanny Diaries, and as an actress in Be Cool. She has also collaborated with hip-hop super group The Black Eyed Peas on several songs and videos. Noelle has been lending her voice to everything from classic Hip-hop hooks, to funky reggae dance floor tunes, to soulful ballads. She has joined forces with artists such as Quantic, Dilated Peoples, and DJ Rhettmatic of the Beat Junkies, M.E.D, The Lions, Orgone, Guilty Simpson, and many others.
Like her collaborative efforts, Noelle’s music takes on a chameleon like approach, drawing on a wealth of influences from soul, jazz, hip-hop, funky R&B, and electro. Laying soul filled vocal arrangements on top of beats thought to only be suitable for a well-versed MC. Grazing through Estero-like ballads, and sexy synth creations reminiscent of Glass Candy. Lyrically speaking on subjects of life struggles, relationship crisis, and social activism. Her highly anticipated, epic solo debut album “Venting” will feature production credits from many of the artists she has worked with in the past, as well as introducing her audience to producers on the come up. Some of them will include Madlib, Robin Hannible, Quantic, and Evidence of Dilated Peoples.
Noelle’s live performances showcase what she has been coined by her peers. Her b-girl style delivery and enchanting vocal range, often leaves audiences stunned with an infectious grin. Equal to Noelle’s vocal and writing talent is her alluring beauty and intelligence. Noelle Scaggs most definitely fits the description of what one would call, A Complete Package.
