Collection: Noelle & The Deserters

Noelle & The Desertersbring South-Western honky tonk from the high deserts of New Mexico to the golden hills of California.  Fronted by singer-songwriter Noelle Fiore, their music draws inspiration from the likes of Emmylou Harris, Loretta Lynn, Marty Robbins, J.J Cale, Gene Clark, Townes Van Zandt, and the great outlaw country players.  The Deserters include seasoned players Graham Norwood (guitar), Alicia Vanden Heuvel (The Aislers Set)(bass), David Cuetter (Tarnation)(pedal steel), and Jerry Fiore (Sonic Love Affair)(drums), all based in the Bay Area and Sacramento.  Noelle was raised in Taos, New Mexico.  As a guitar player and vocalist, she was a founding member of Sweet Chariot, singing and playing guitar/ banjo.  Later, she and Tim Cohen (The Fresh & Onlys) founded the band Magic Trick, recording four full length albums for labels Hardly Art and Captured Tracks.  Noelle is also a current member of the Shannon Shaw Band, on guitar and vocals.  

 High Desert Daydream is Noelle & The Deserters debut album, out May 31, 2024 on Speakeasy Studios SF.  The songs on the album touch on life in the west, growing up in Taos, living in California, songs of love, memory, marriage, work, good times, and bad times.  Like all classic country music, the songs are infused with a sense of real-life struggles and living life in the everyday.  Noelle’s incredible voice carries the album, and her songs are at once moving, powerful, tender, humorous, and intimately relatable.
