“ a voice with the golden charm of a meadowlark and lyricism with the strike of a rattlesnake”
Noeline Hofmann is a singer-songwriter and working-cowgirl native to the Southern Alberta Badlands. From bittersweet ballad to gritty barn burner, the Wildrose Girl brings the glowing expanse of the Plains to the stage; a voice with the golden charm of a meadowlark and lyricism with the strike of a rattlesnake. Noeline’s song 'Lonely Morning' was a winner of the Calgary Songsmiths Acoustic Sessions Contest, as well as selected in the Top 5 of the Master Musicians Festival: Take The Stage contest. Between a history of working in honky-tonks and punching cattle across the Canadian Prairies, Noeline's songwriting and live show bleed a head-turning authenticity through her sterling brand of 'wildrose' country music. Best described by a curator of the Tongue on the Post Folk Music Festival as “a peach with pistol attitude,” the 19-year-old has been taking Alberta's roots music community by storm since emerging onto the scene in the beginning of 2023 - sharing the stage with an array of renowned Western Canadian road warriors, earning spots on festival lineups, and selling out shows in distilleries, listening rooms, and theatres alike. Although just getting started, Noeline’s sage artistry promises the road ahead of her is chock-full of stage lights and marquee signs.
