My Exclusive Interview With Taylor Gang’s Very Own Courtney Noelle!

My Exclusive Interview With Taylor Gang's Very Own Courtney Noelle!

Singer and Songwriter Courtney Noelle and I had a chat about her latest mixtape Love On The Run, how fans reacted to her music and what fans should anticipate from the newcomer.

*Here’s my full interview below with my collaboration with {C}Magazine*

What was the moment you decided you wanted to become a singer? I read somewhere that you were initially too shy to come out as an artist so what that “a ha” moment?

 Courtney Noelle: “Well. I couldn’t see myself doing anything else. I went to school and I went to college and I knew that it wasn’t for me at all so I kind of had to get over being shy. And then the more assurance I got from my peers and my family, who assured me that I could totally do this and you, are really talented and you should do something with it. My family really gave me the boast that made me want to pursue singing because at first I was too scared, I just wanted to be a songwriter.”

“How would you describe your music style?”

 Courtney Noelle: “My style is really laid back, really mellow, and laid back…I kind of stick to the love topics because its universal and I like to write from experience so every song that I write is 99.9% of the time is about personal experience, so I keep it real, I like to draw from real life situations and my choice of, you know usually a beat I choose…very melodic and soft, I like to get the message across. I don’t like a lot of noise to over power the words so I like it to be smooth, laid back and girly! (Giggles)

I see you released your latest mixtape Love On The Run and how have the masses taken to your music? What were the reactions?

 Courtney Noelle: “It was very, very good! A lot of people who are fans of Wiz are fans of mine because I’ve been on so many of his projects, and I’ve been on tour with him very early from that so I wanted to make sure that I didn’t give them anything that was too messy and I wanted them to hear the same girl they’ve heard on Wiz’s CD or on tour and I wanted to stay authentic to what I’ve done from the start…so everybody accepted the music really well.”

The songs on the mixtape, Love On The Run, are they fresh, new material? Or were they songs that you’ve written for other artists and decided to keep these for you?

 Courtney Noelle: “Well I have like a folder of songs that I just pick and choose when to give them to someone else so I will separate them by folder. If I know for sure it is something I can’t see myself singing I will put it in a folder to give to someone else but Love On The Run is all like…every song is specially made for this mixtape, for me…like I had an idea how I wanted it to sound…I had an idea on how I wanted every beat to sound, the way I wanted to be arranged so all the songs on Love On The Run were picked specifically for Love On The Run but there are some songs that have been done for years, Love On The Run been in the making for almost two years now so like one of the oldest song I have on there is with Juicy J is called Without You, which was one of the very first songs I recorded for Love On The Run and that have been done for about two summers (Giggles).”

What is your personal favorite song(s) on Love On The Run?

Courtney Noelle: “Two and Three are my favorites. Chance and On The Run are my two favorite songs because they’re really personal songs and every time I listen to them I can vividly remember writing them and recording them…those two are very personal and my two favorites. “

What will be your next single and when should we expect it to be released?

Courtney Noelle: “Well Fooled is doing really well right now so we are still trying to decide what we are going to do where we are going to take Fooled and on the next single we are putting together video treatment and ideas…after I leave Atlanta I am going to LA so we can put in the next single, start working on the next video and things like that so we will be releasing the next single soon.“

Other than getting the next single up and running, what is the next step for you?

Courtney Noelle: “Tour. I will be touring this summer along with Taylor Gang, promoting Love On The Run and getting it out there. Promoting for my single Fooled and whatever the next single is that we are choosing. The video for Fooled is done. We just got the final edits back for that so we will be releasing that we just have to figure out what network to premiere it on. So after the videos are out we will be going on tour. “

About Courtney Noelle:

Courtney Noelle is an emerging R&B singer and recent Taylor Gang signee, mostly known for her collaborations with Wiz Khalifa on his mixtape “Star Power.” She is featured on Bankroll, which she performed along Wiz on his “Wake and Bake” tour, also on “Burn after Rolling” and she is featured on One Way. Courtney has collaborated with Chevy Woods, on his “Pilot Shit” mixtape, on a song called Crazy. Courtney was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

At the age of 17 Courtney started recording her material. After hearing the young songbirds demo, Universal Records invited Courtney to New York to meet with her and potentially discuss her future. Feeling she wasn’t ready at the time, she was still offered her an internship to learn the inner workings of the music industry. She was later signed to the Trackmaster Label “Brookland Ent./Universal Republic” along side Lil Kim, and LeMarvin, but parted way with the label in 2008.

After leaving New York, Courtney then moved back to Pittsburgh to start her journey over once more, which may have been the blessing she needed, while home recording she ran into a child hood friend and up and coming rapper Wiz Khalifa and the rest was history!
