Nollsie is from the South African jungle having once again been crowned as Australia’s favourite runner up! His second place victory is reminiscent of his 2003 Australian Idol placing but this all just makes Shannon Noll more determined to prove why he is still around!
With his head held high and with a once in a lifetime experience behind him, Shannon Noll is excited to chat about his new album release UNBROKEN. This is his first new album in seven years and was released while he was in the jungle. After some time with his family, his forthcoming tour which will see him cover the country with his new songs and his biggest hits!
His rise to fame as the first runner-up of the first Australian Idol series in 2003 changed his life from farm hand in Condobolin forever. Certified triple-platinum sales, number #1 hits, five top 10 albums, has 17 platinum and three gold accreditations, and boasts a reputation as the only Australian male artist in national chart history to have ever achieved ten consecutive top ten singles.
The ex-farm boy from Condobolin is no stranger to hardship and loss. He examines his roots, his fame, his unswerving patriotic pride and love of Australia in lead singles such as ‘Who I Am’ and ‘Southern Sky’. His deep sense of family, and reflections on growing older are also strong themes. These two singles and a gutsy cover version of the Creedence Clearwater Revivial hit, ‘Fortunate Son’ along his fourth single, ‘Land of Mine’ set the tone of what UNBROKEN encapsulates seeing it debut on the overall ARIA Charts at #7.
To celebrate the release of Unbroken, Shannon will hit the road with his band, doing what he loves best, performing to his loyal fans.
‘I’m champing at the bit to go play them live,’ says Shannon. ‘There were a couple of years where I didn’t play as much but that has revitalised me. I’m singing better than I ever have and the band is cooking. It’s back to the days of being lots of fun, rather than worrying about what’s around the corner.’
