Noel Wentworth is the boy next door with only one exception . He has an obsession for communicating his ideals ,trials, and the celebration of life through music.
After a decade of rocking Canadian pubs and fueling dance clubs overseas, Noel took a step forward and made the decision to concentrate on creating his own music that had been calling him for years . The result of this new direction was his debut release "Motion" ( released in 2002). His songs "Sleep" and "Every once in awhile" received radioair play throughout southern BC and beyond . As well, the song "the last to know" won a licencing deal through www.makeastar.com and has been placed on The Best of Makeastar.com's Vol III compilation CD that is now available in Wherehouse, FYE, Coconuts Music, Strawberries, Spec's,Planet Music, and Saturday Matinee stores nationwide.
Most recently, Noel, placed 7th out of 265 bands which has given him a coveted spot on the 99.9 Sun FM and The Center For Arts and Technology's " the best of the Okanagan" compilation. This CD will feature Noel's slated single from his upcoming CD "something about me's changed" .
Now ,almost Two years after the release of Motion , Noel brings his latest project " Change" to the table. An eleven song Pop/Rock/Country crossover CD. "Change basically sums up what I've gone through this whole project. Getting married." says Noel."...The loss of my Grandfather ,and coming to terms with personal problems and triumphs". "... I know it's all a part of life but being able to express this through song has been a extraordinary process, I know others will relate to what i'm saying in here"... "I've also changed the way I write ,record and produce my music . I've upgraded my whole studio and unlike my first record, let go of some of the control by inviting other musicians to play parts" .
This time around, Noel has combined all the eclectic sounds from "Motion" with his own vision by concentrating on developing his own sound ."To sum it all up," Noel says. "Music off of this CD can be described as Pop Roots Music with songs and vocal styles compared to artists such as John Mayer , Keith Urban, and Jason Mraz". All in all Noel Wentworth's "Change" is a feel good Pop rock album with plenty of hope, fun ,and thought to go around. -
