“THE FIONA NOAKES BAND ARE DOING MUCH MORE THAN JUST STARING AT THE CEILING "I caught wind of the group after hearing “Fake” on Skope Radio and they also have a 6 song EP out now ‘Staring At The Ceiling.’ These 4 are fun, talented, and make catchy music."”

“Hailing from our nation's capital, Ottawa, Fiona Noakes is pursuing her creative dreams. While juggling a full time job, acting opportunities and music - and somewhere in there a tour - you can't help but root for her to succeed in whatever she chooses.”

“Following up her 2011 debut, Out of the Shadows, the tracks on Staring at the Ceiling feature contemplative and introspective lyrics, a songwriting style the Ottawa singer says helps her stay sane. ... After opening for gay performers Hunter Valentine and Sarah Smith, Noakes now has her sights set on playing the Capital Pride main stage in 2014.”

“Out of the Shadows is a mix of aggressive rock mixed with solo acoustic songs. The songs touch on themes of disappointment, lost love and anger. “Ways to Get Over You” is a cross between Bif Naked and Florence and the Machine. “That song is very energetic and fast-paced for me,” Noakes says.”
