She's fevered and flamboyant, she's exotic and erotic,
but mostly she's an incandescent star!
She's known as the Latin Tina Turner, been compared to Janis Joplin and she's even been likened to Bjork, but there has never really been anyone like Cecilia Noel. Even her style of music is as original as her talent.
With its powerful blend of African, Latin and Motor City rhythms performed against a pulsating beat pulled together by Noel's stunning vocal styling's, her music has earned its own category - Sal Soul!
Described as a synthesis of funk, rock and soul with a Latin beat, Noel's Wild Clams band features bass and electric guitars, keyboards, drums, percussion, trombone, tenor sax, alto sax and trumpet. Lively orchestration, solid vocals and dramatic choreography are included in the group's act which has been seen around the globe and locally in places such as House of Blues.
Critics fall all over themselves trying to describe her unique gifts. Her "performance is an exciting live celebration of life that should be a must-see," hails one writer. The L. A. Times lauds her work as "nearly flawless" and calls her music "arguably the most potent sound to emerge in years."
Noel's career includes voice acting on Rugrats, Santo Bugito and HBO Spice City, but the talented queen of SalSoul also composes and produces songs.
