Welcome to Music Monday
This week’s Music Monday questions were answered by musician Noelle Tannen.
What is your current go to song?
My Current Go to song as of now, is this song by this australian band named Jaala and the song is called Salt Shaker. I have been listening to it almost everyday for the past month. For me, I am not sure if this is what they intended but the song is about breaking away from your roots, feeling Astray from family and childhood, being a wanderer.
What was the last concert you went to?
I have moved to New Orleans fairly recently, so when I am not playing, I go out to see live music A LOT. Last night I went to this improvised set, featuring different musicians and artist, Helen Gillet who is a cellist, Vocalist Annie Ellicot, Cliff Hines and some other local artist. It was wild!
Who is an artist that everyone needs to check out?
There are so many! DANIELLE GRUBB! Another New York based musician originally from Texas I believe, but she is incredible. I play shows with her every now and again and she continues to blow my mind every time. She plays, drums, guitars sings, writes, produces, engineers .. you name it. Also, Jaala from Australia. Tank & The Bangas are a band from New Orleans and they are amazing, take my word for it! There are probably a million others I am not naming but you asked for an artist and I gave three so I will stop here.
What events are you looking forward to in 2017?
I am looking forward to what the future has to offer! I am touring to different places in February as a more stripped down version of my music, just be and a drummer and we will be going to Nashville to play a few shows. I am really excited about that. I have a show on my birthday (Feb 25th) During Mardi Gras and I will be playing in New Orleans with a band that I really admire, Sexy Dex and The Fresh. I am also excited to see where the recently released record goes, I will be touring with my New York Based band, Noelle Tannen & The Filthy No-Nos and am excited to return home. We will be playing @ Radegast on April 21st and more dates NY to be announced soon! You can check my website for all that stuff.
