Check out the new single from Noel Gourdin entitled “Foxxxy” from his album “City Heart, Southern Soul” available now.
“Foxxxy is a simple courting record with a retro-relevant musical feel and sound. It’s a spontaneous date, a car ride to the lake, good company and conversation and great chemistry.” – Noel Gourdin
R&B Singer/songwriter Noel Gourdin is a fan of powerful music with potent messages. Influenced by iconic voices like Marvin Gaye, Otis Redding and Johnny Taylor, Gourdin has learned a thing or two about crafting songs that speak to the heart, mind and soul. His rich buttery smooth alto, flavored with a gritty and bluesy undercurrent and punctuated by agile gospel riffs, make him instantly recognizable. The handsome, down-to-earth musician’s ability to drive home a song was quickly evidenced when he exploded onto the scene in 2008. His unforgettable and soulfully charged hit “The River,” managed to hold the #1 slot at Urban AC Radio for 15 consecutive weeks. Gourdin made his Shanachie Entertainment/Top Notch Music debut with City Heart, Southern Soul (Feb. 2014) in which the young and charming musician says harnesses the true essence of soul music, while at the same time expands its boundaries. “This album is a reflection of all the great soul artists of the past that inspired me to make retro-relevant records. I strived to stay true to the organic and authentic feel that I’ve always wanted my music to encompass.”
