Hello, I'm Natalie Noone. When I was 10 years old my musically talented and accomplished father gave me a box set of 50's Rock n Roll music and suddenly, my life changed. I had been studying the violin for years and getting a very rich musical education via Suzuki method, but Sam Cooke's "You Send Me," Elvis Presley's "Love Me Tender," The Everly Brothers "All I Have to Do Is Dream," and Buddy Holly's "Peggy Sue" completely blew my mind. Suddenly I couldn't get enough. My father then continued my education with 1960's music- more than happy to introduce me to the songs of his youth. My godfather Mickie Most had produced so many of my favorites like Donovan,The Animals, Hot Chocolate, Lulu, and Jeff Beck Group—and of course anything Phil Spector had touched became holy to me. When I began writing songs at 14, however, I began to look for simple romance and storytelling. Roy Orbison, the Everly Brothers, Dolly Parton, and anyone who had recorded at RCA Studio B in Nashville took center stage. This influenced my decision to relocate from Santa Barbara, California to Nashville, TN. My musical soul came alive the minute I stepped off the plane and 4 years later, with a degree in History under my belt, Natalie Noone and the Maybes are ready to go.
The Maybes were formed in early 2013 as an extension of my ongoing solo project and I am so thrilled to introduce myself and a band. I am lucky to be backed by talented musicians John Michael Gentile, Bill Van Vleet, Ricky Dover Jr and Salar Rajabnik and we are inspired by the music of the Everly Brothers, Nick Lowe, Elvis Costello, Rodney Crowell, Sam Cooke, Ry Cooder, and all others previously mentioned in this wordy bio.
