Paul Noonan to release album of collaborations

Ahead of Bell X1's Music Show slot, their singer talks side projects.

The Hot Press Newsdesk, 20 Feb 2012

Talking to Hot Press ahead of their Saturday acoustic appearance at The Music Show, Paul Noonan has described Bell X1 as being “a hub from which side-projects spring, which is healthy.”

Among these is an album of pared back collaborations that he’s recording with female vocalists like Martha Wainwright, Joan Wasser and Gemma Hayes.

“I’ve reached out to people like Emmylou Harris as well,” Paul reveals. “Gone for long shots to see what happens.”

Expect this intriguing sounding record to land at some point during 2012.

The Music Show 2012, presented by Hot Press in association with RTE 2fm, runs from February 25-26 in The RDS, Dublin.

Tickets are available (€12 one day, €16 for the weekend) on Ticketmaster
