Artist wins recording opportunity

Noelle Nayon is one of Westlake Girl’s talented Contemporary musicians currently in Year 13. Over the past few years, her song writing skills have developed and grown dramatically and she is now consistently producing high quality songs with intricate chord progressions and carefully crafted lyrics.

We were very excited to learn that Noelle’s hard work has paid off with her placing as the runner-up in the North Shore Sound Depot Song Writing Competition. This competition awards Noelle the opportunity to record and produce her original song in a recording studio with the help of professional sound engineers.

“It was a huge honour to be named the runner-up, as part of NZ Music Month 2022,” says Noelle. “I entered my song, Temptation, which I both wrote and composed as a part of my Year 13 Music Contemporary course (featuring Stella Ranginui). I’m so lucky to be able to record my song at Devonport Depot Sound in the Depot Artspace creative hub, with their professional engineers and equipment later this year as my prize. I’m very grateful for this opportunity and to have this experience!”

We can’t wait to hear the final result!
