Shannon Noll’s everyman appeal lies in his honesty. He possesses the knack of striking a chord with legions of music fans, jacking into a pure emotion that’s both his own and instantly relatable. Fourth album, A Million Suns,stays faithful to his classic rock roots while ramping up the pace like never before.
Three years since Shannon hit No.3 in the ARIA album chart with Turn It Up, and despite having clocked up 10 consecutive top 10 ARIA chart singles, the country boy from Condobolin, NSW remains unaffected by success and committed to his hard-working rock ethic. “I’m a knockabout bloke, not so different to most people,” he points out. “It shows that the average bloke can achieve his dreams if he tries.”
