Some words about Noel and his music:
“Noel’s music has the ability to take us there, walk the beaches, hear the surf, and touch our hearts.”
“This CD Justice and Pride is a welcome addition to Australian Folk Music.” Green Left Weekly
“Noel started his set with new words to Advance Australia Fair which was most amusing, but sadly true. Many of Noel’s songs contain political comments but also demonstrate a fine sense of the ridiculous. As the saying goes, there’s many a true word spoken in jest.”
“Noel Gardner has been a part of the folk scene on the Sunshine Coast for many
“Your voices and harmonies were so beautiful they sent shivers up my spine.“
“This was a house concert with a difference the house being the towering forest, complete with visiting koala… Noel’s house at Palmwoods. Sitting outside in this cathedral-like setting, with the stars just visible through the leafy canopy, the evening’s music was haunting, almost sacred. Noel, an accomplished performer himself welcomed us with his diverse and dinkum folk style. The atmosphere was perfect for his happy, heartfelt and image-evoking songs, accompanied on this occasion by the beautifully contrasting voice of Jenni Finnigan. The musical story-telling had begun.”
"Your concert made me laugh and cry. Photographs and Memories certainly hits the spot for any parent while your race call about the election was very clever and made me laugh no end..."
"Pulling in a full house and over the top applause from the audience, this brilliant C.D. shows Noels strong committment to both social and environmental issues."
“He performed some more of his original songs, including the lovely one he write for his niece's wedding and ended with his hauntingly beautiful Humpback Whale complete with audience participation. "
“Thank you Noel for your contribution to our Quality of Life on the Sunshine Coast. Your songs and music will outlive us all.”
