RADAR: Sierra Noble

22-year-old Canadian singer/songwriter and accomplished fiddler Sierra Noble has laid her roots firmly in the new acoustic traditions of Americana, folk and country since she first began playing music festivals at the age of 10 and releasing her first album of instrumentals at 15. She began to literally find her voice as a singer with the aptly titled Possibilities and the EP's charting title track single. Now, five years later, she spends most of her time in New York, playing the local pass-the-hat songwriter clubs and finishing up her new studio album -- due this spring -- with legendary producer Russ Titelman (Randy Newman, Eric Clapton). Sumptuous new single "I Can See" recalls the Robert Plant/Alison Krauss Raising Sand atmospherics thanks to a studio band featuring guitarist Buddy Miller and producer/drummer Marco Giovino while drawing upon both Appalachian back porch tradition and contemporary folk/pop songcraft. "I don’t want my career to be put into one category," says Noble. "Of course, every album needs a certain direction to be a cohesive piece of art..."
