SHANNON NOLL

Australia Icon

Shannon Noll’s everyman appeal lies in his honesty. He possesses the knack of striking a chord with legions of music fans, jacking into a pure emotion that’s both his own and instantly relatable. Shannon still to this day will busk in the street with his brothers when the urge takes them, determined to keep that grassroots joy alive. “I tell it straight up and down when I’m writing songs,” he says. “I’m not the sort of person who’ll write something that means 15 things to 15 different people. Music’s about making you feel something, and even more importantly, making you feel that someone else out there feels the same way.”
