Shannon Noll

Shannon Noll (born 16 September 1975) is an Australian singer who first came to prominence as runner-up of the first series of Australian Idol (2003) which led to him being signed to Sony BMG. Since then he has released five Top 10 albums. That's What I'm Talking About in 2004 and Lift in 2005 were No. 1 multi-platinum sellers, and his third album Turn It Up released in 2007 reached No. 3 and was certified platinum. His two following albums did not gain certification. No Turning Back: The Story So Far containing some of his previous hits and five new songs was released in 2008, peaking at No. 7, and A Million Suns released in October 2011 reached No. 8. Noll's first ten singles released between February 2004 and September 2007 all peaked inside the Aria Top 10. He is the only Australian male artist in Australian chart history to have ten consecutive top 10 singles. Seven of his singles reached the top 5, including three No. 1's. He has released seven further singles since 2007, with two reaching the top 50, the highest charting one peaking at number 26. John Farnham, Jimmy Barnes and Guy Sebastian have all achieved more top 10 singles than Noll, but they were nonconsecutive.

Noll has 17 platinum and three gold accreditations according to Australian Recording Industry Association records, and his combined album and single sales have reached over 1.3 million. This is the second highest accreditation and sales level for an Australian Idol contestant, and the highest for a non winner. Noll received Aria nominations for highest seller for his debut album and single in 2004, and for the single "Shine" in 2006. His second album Lift was also nominated for Best Pop release in that year. He won MTV awards for Best Male Artist three years in succession between 2005 and 2007.

Noll also had chart success in two other countries in 2004. His debut single "What About Me" reached No. 2 in Ireland and No. 10 in New Zealand. His debut album also peaked at No. 31 in the New Zealand charts. An album of his Australian hits called What Matters Most was released in the UK and Ireland in June 2009 to coincide with his tour there with the stage production of Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of The War of the Worlds. On 5 January 2010 the Daily Telegraph reported Noll was no longer signed to Sony, and that he was looking for a new label. Noll is now signed to Universal Music. His song 'Shine' was used to close out Ed Miliband's key-note speech at the 2012 Labour party conference in the United Kingdom.
