- THE MUSICIAN -
As if opening for PAUL MCCARTNEY and BON JOVI weren't enough...she also shone brightly for over 3 billion around the world in the 2010 Winter Olympics Opening Ceremonies in Vancouver.
This young Canadian prairie girl is talented, gifted, beautiful and up-and-coming!
Sierra Noble breezes through Celtic, Bluegrass, Jazz, World beat and other styles of music with stunning ease on her fiddle, her breadth of experience in in her 20 years of life is impressive.
Her talent has taken her around the world to Asia, Europe and across North America. She amazes audiences with compelling contemporary performances which feature exceptional instrumentals, beautiful innovative vocals, and her infectious down to earth charm.
In front of 100 million in the Latin America and the Spanish-speaking world, Sierra Noble was the first Canadian ever to be named winner of the prestigious Viña Del Mar International Song Competition in Chile, both for Best Song and Best Performance.
Never one to rest on her laurels, it is no surprise that 21 year old Sierra wanted to expand and develop her musical talents. With a debut EP aptly named "Possibilites", Sierra's journey as a singer-songwriter is off to an outstanding start. Her voice is a study in gorgeous contradictions - wonderfully pure yet layered with subtle, smoky tones. Her songs speak of universal themes of love, longing and discovery wrapped in infectious melodies and delivered with sincerity and conviction.
The album has been receiving rave reviews across Canada, and has already made it to space and back. Canadian astronaut, Julie Payette chose it as one of few albums that she would take with her on the STS-127 mission to the space station in July, 2009.
Sierra's shows feature her first love, compelling and lively fiddle playing. She has created an atmosphere where stunning instrumentals and hook laden pop songs exist in perfect harmony.
This young musician is on her way to the top with the release of both her debut single "Possibility" to radio and her debut music video for the single charting in the Top 20 Countdown on CMT Canada (Country Music Television). and Top 10 on Much More Music.
- THE HUMANITARIAN -
Sierra dedicates much of her time to various causes, from her involvement with the global fight to ban landmines, her work with welcoming war-affected refugee families to Canada, as well as programs for inner-city youth in Winnipeg, all in an effort to make the world a better place.
Sierra also participates in many fundraisers and events for various causes and charities - a few from this past year - a fundraising concert for Haiti Relief which raised $60,000, the Kinsmen and Kinettes of Saskatchewan's "Telemiracle" a
20 hour Telethon helping raise over $4 million for people with special medical needs and expenses, "Dancing with Celebrities" Gala fundraiser for the Society for Manitobans with Disabilities, Stomp for Human Rights - raised over $30,000 for the new Human Rights Museum being built in Winnipeg, St. Benedict's Retreat Centre fundraiser - over $8,700 raised for a free retreat for people and their caregivers living with HIV and AIDS, Concert for Peace, a fundraising concert for Variety the Children's Charity "Hand in Hand - a Warriors Tribute - Military Tattoo" and Variety's Gold Heart Gala.
She has been presented with many humanitarian and volunteer awards for her substantial accomplishments including the Inaugural Queen’s Golden Jubilee Medal but Sierra’s greatest satisfaction comes not from awards but from seeing the changes in people’s lives and the impact that the voices of youth can make in the world.
It is no surprise that much of Sierra’s inspiration comes from the words of Gandhi., "You must be the change that you wish to see in the world."
