Noel McKoy is a singer from the school of soulful story telling and social commentating, who writes from the heart and delivers from the soul. Noel McKoy’s raw rasping texture from the pen to the acoustic style of production gives the dynamic sound that will take you on a voyage of human emotion.
It is no surprise that Noel McKoy’s artistic development is inspired from the legendary greats such as, Stevie Wonder, Chaka Khan, Isley Brothers, Rick James, Miles Davis and The Beatles but it would be closer to home, which would encourage him to sing.
It was his mother and aunt who set him off in the right direction of singing and performing at the young age of 12 and then going on to record his first track at the age of 14. By 18 he was mastering the art of song writing and playing guitar but it would be at a later age of 24 that he would be part of a band named ‘McKoy’ which, consisted of sister Junett and two brothers Cornell and Robin.
