Hello. I am Noonie Bao.
It took me five years to complete my debut album, “i am noonie bao”. Why did it take so long, you may ask? I think I know why. Music needs time to grow, and I needed to experience a lot more in my life to enable me to get to this point.
My day job was to write songs for others. EMI Publishing signed me as a song writer in my late teens. Writing about myself in the way I’ve done on “i am noonie bao” was a very frightening process for me. Sitting by myself with these songs – I had not thought about other people listening to them. This was only something I became aware of gradually. Like for instance when I met Niek from the Belgian band Das Pop and he told me he wanted to release one of my songs. This lead to the single receiving top rotation on National radio in Belgium and some live shows around Europe, including one at David Lynch’s club Silencio in Paris. This was only last year and it didn’t take very long for Swedish National radio, blogs and major festivals to start picking up on my songs. Suddenly, I was being listened to by more people than just those I knew.
Who is Noonie Bao? – How do you answer a question like that?
In many ways, music is all I know. When I was really young I went on a lot of dates. Not my own, but my friends dates! Because all my friends thought I sang so sweet, they would bring me along with them to the woods, where they would make out with boys and I would became their soundtrack. This is where my interest in singing began.
“i am noonie bao” is therefore, in many ways, my own personal soundtrack over the last several years of my life. A soundtrack that I hope will touch you in a similar way to how the experiences I’m singing about have affected me.

I AM NOONIE BAO will be released on Hybris on the 31st of October 2012.
