Noelle LaRae started her music career at a very young age. Since she was seven years old she was actively involved in musical theater and singing at her church. At ten years old she fell in love with writing songs and taught herself to play piano by age twelve. Also around this time she was given the opportunity to open for Blake Shelton and Michael McDonald. Although performing and singing first drew her to the music industry, her main passion fell with the art of writing.
Growing up in Nashville, Noelle LaRae has been given many unique opportunities, much of which came from the time she spent participating in music camps sponsored by Kids on Stage. Through this amazing program she has been blessed to write with Candy Cameron (What Kinda Gone performed by Chris Cagle), Jamie O’Neal (Co-Writer and performer of There is No Arizona), Shea Smith (CO-Writer for There is No Arizona), 2004 BMI Songwriter of the year Casey Beathard (No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problem performed by Kenny Chesney, Get Ready, Get Set, Don’t Go performed by Billy Ray Cyrus, Find Out Who Your Friends are performed by Tracy Lawerence, 10 Rounds with Jose Quervo performed by Tracy Bird), and Aaron Barker (Baby Blue and A Love Without End, Amen both performed by George Straight, and What About Now performed by Lone Star). While continuing to grow in her unique gift of writing, Noelle LaRae also found a unique sound.
Noelle LaRae fell in love with the soulful blues singers such as Aretha Franklin and Etta James, and that inspiration is reflective in her music. However, with growing up in Nashville, TN one cannot abandon the home to country music so easily. Thus the compilation of a soulful county crossover is born with Noelle LaRae. Although she has been compared to the likes of Sarah Bareilles, Alicia Keys, Carrie Underwood, Colbie Caillat, and a female version of Rascal Flatts, once you hear the music you know there is no one like Noelle LaRae.
