Canadian singer songwriter Fiona Noakes is a fresh face to Ottawa’s music scene. For the past five years Fiona has been writing her own songs and honing her distinct style – a unique blend of alternating manic guitars and indie folk rhythms. Fiona’s lyrics catalogue an honest life of love, loss, and side trips. With a versatile background in acting and a voice to rival the likes of Bif Naked and Tegan and Sara, Fiona has grown from performing open mic nights to crowds of cheering fans at Ottawa’s Big Money Shot Contest.
