Biography

Former george front man Tyrone Noonan is back in the swing of the Australian music scene after being based overseas for several years.

Since 2014 he has been steadily re-engaging with his Aussie fans, including a recent successful East Coast tour with rising star Kristy Coote (February 2016), performing to a packed house for the exclusive QLD Tina Arena performance on the Gold Coast (March 2016), and selling out QPAC's Concert Hall (September 2016) for the Brisbane Festival's george 20 year reunion gig, with shows continuing nationally into 2017.

During his time overseas he witnessed the beginnings a new wave of Australian musical success globally, something which shows no signs of slowing down and further proof that you can now have an international career while living down under. "It's probably fair to say this new wave started with Gotye's success but it shows no signs of losing momentum - look at Courtney Barnett and Tame Impala for example," he said.

In New York, Nashville, LA and London, Tyrone worked regularly with musicians who’ve recorded and toured with John Lennon, David Bowie, Billy Joel, AIR and Bryan Ferry and performed regularly at prestigious pubs, clubs and festivals, and also recorded in studios used by the likes of Mark Ronson and Prince.

Tyrone brings a wealth of international experience back to Australia and is now taking his artistry to the next level. Nowhere is this more evident than in the production of the track “This Way” by new artist Alby Carter which has been recently (October/November 2016) enjoying fantastic radio play around Australia.

His solo album I Believe and remix album I’m A Believer are available online and in stores through MGM. 

Lyrics

I Believe

Written By: Tyrone Noonan/Nicholas Stewart

Can you hear all the words I’m trying to say
While my heart just bleeds away,
Feeling so blue today

I have loved and have lost before today
But it never felt this way
Feeling so blue today

I believe in love, I believe in love
I believe in love I believe in love

So I call, but somehow it’s not the same
Like your heart’s out on a plate
Feeling so far away

But I know, yes I know you have got to go this way
On your way down to LA
We’re on a date with destiny

I believe in love, I believe in love
I believe in love I believe in love

And I want you to find the things you need
To feel satisfied
And I hope that with time
We realise our love…

I believe in love, I believe in love
I believe in love, I believe in love
I believe, oh–oh
I believe, oh-oh

Tight Black Dress

Written By: Tyrone Noonan / Russ De Salvo / Arnie Roman

I've been kind of lonely,
girlfriend just disowned me
Gettin’ in the mood all by myself
So I take a train to nowhere,
thinkin’ she may go there
Lookin’ just for me and no one else

And much to my naive surprise,
she gets me right between the eyes

Blonde hair falling all around her face
Eyes as blue as any ocean wave
Melting over her with every kiss
White light beauty in a tight black dress, tight black dress

She’s the kind of dreamer,
you got to believe her,
when she sends a wish into the night
Wanna be the lover,
pure enough to touch her
Wanna be the angel in her life

And with open arms she waits,
for me to take my rightful place

Blonde hair falling all around her face
Eyes as blue as any ocean wave
Melting over me with every kiss
White light beauty in a tight black dress, tight black dress

Am I sleeping? Am I breathing? Maybe I just died?
Guys like me and girls like her don’t usually vibe…

Blonde hair falling all around her face
Eyes as blue as any ocean wave
Melting over me with every kiss
White light beauty in a tight black,
White light beauty in a tight black dress, tight black dress (repeat)

Because Of You

Written By: T.Noonan/C.Sandford/N.Howard

Verse 1
Ever since I met you girl, There's something different in my world
Now that I have let you in, I feel like I'm alive again
You've touched me, where no-one sees

One thing that i know is true, I've never met someone like you
I'd been searching for so long, to find the place where I belong
Now I see, when you look at me!

Chorus
I feel like my head's in the clouds
and i find myself laughing out loud
I never knew life was so sweet
Until you came, now the world's at my feet
Because of You, Because of You

Verse Two
I can see forever in your eyes, Are you an angel in disguise,
Call it fate or destiny, I feel your love's protecting me
Now I know, where I need to go

Bridge
Heaven knows that you have saved me
Saved me From who I used to be
And I'll thank you, for eternity

Chorus
I feel like my head's in the clouds
and i find myself laughing out loud
I never knew life was so sweet
Until you came, now the world's at my feet
Because of You, Because of You

Everything has changed,
Because of You, I’m dancing in the rain.
I’m happy again,
Because of You, Because of You

On My Knees

Written By: Tyrone Noonan/John Drake/Eden James

I don't know where you're running to, but I'm bound to follow
'Cause you gave me something I could love

Walking down your Chancery Lane, you know I thought we'd never change
When you gave me something I could love

You got me on my knees, in some kind of purgatory
Don't go saying that my love is your disease,
'Cause I'll give you all you need

Back and forth we've always been, Life is short now follow me
Into, another time where we could love

Your heavy heart is shutting down, leaving me with sorrow
Won't you, give me something I could love

You got me on my knees, in some kind of purgatory
Don't go saying that my love is your disease,
'Cause I'll give you all you need

I've been looking for a song, a song to call my own
Yeah, that's all I need

La la la, la la la la etc

You got me on my knees, in some kind of purgatory
Don't go saying that my love is your disease,
'Cause I'll give you all you need

We won't run out, No we won't run out
We won't run out, No we won't run out
We won't run out, No we won't run out
We won't run out, No we won't run out
