Folk \ Country
Michelle Noftall stepped onto the local music stage in 2015 with her debut album, “Songs for a Winter Night”, which earned her a MusicNL nomination of Female Artist of the Year. Since that time, she has performed on the largest local stages, such as in the Bob Dylan Tribute show at Holy Heart Theatre and the VOCM Happy Tree concert at the St. John’s Arts and Culture Centre. Most recently she headlined a successful solo show with Craig Young and Sandy Morris in June, “Sunday of Song.”
Michelle’s singing style has been compared to the likes of Karen Carpenter and Joni Mitchell, and her warm, rich vocals are a unique sound that can be attributed to both her classical formal training (as an alumni of MUN School of Music) and her love of folk and country music.
Michelle is presently working with Craig Young as they record her first album of original music, “Roots in the Water”, to be released in Fall 2017. Inspired by her fascinating family tree, it is a concept album of music that will carry the listener on a musical journey from Barbados to Newfoundland, with stories and songs of love and loss that is sure to touch the hearts of listeners and prove to be a worthy addition to our province’s folk music collection.
