Judyth Piazza interviews Soulful, Screaming, Passionate Electric Violinist Noel Webb

By Judyth Piazza CEO (Editor)

When the violin first chose Noel Webb, he knew that he was being led down a different path. While most violinists were fashioned in the traditional classical structure, Noel was intoxicated by the sounds of Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and the sultry electricity of rock music. "Each violin I played, I knew there was personal expression of soul, s[e]x, and outrageous rock in that instrument. With no previous violinist to follow, I knew there was fresh musical discovery there, to let my insides sing out," said Webb.

This same desire to dance within the sphere of the creative muse, also led Webb into other forms of artistic expression. Fans of the daytime television will recall he served as a principle actor for the soap opera General Hospital. Other television/movie appearances include a character in Mad About You, a co-starring role on FBI-Untold Stories and starring roles in movies of the week like The Alamo, Young Riders, The Menendez Brothers and Reluctant Agent.

As a Hollywood actor, he`d rack up an extensive list of commercials and narrative spots for companies like McDonalds, Honda, Emery, NBC Promo, CBS Promo, 50 A&E biographies, TNN biographies and also movie trailers. As a music writer and producer, Webb composed film trailer music for dozens of movies, television shows, commercials including History of Violence, Butterfly Effect, 2 Fast 2 Furious, Seabiscuit, Ray, Storm in the Afternoon, The Crow, and more. In 2010, the violin once again took center stage and demanded a place to call home with the CD release of the Give it All.

This release would garner national airplay and critical acclaim, making Webb the innovator of contemporary electric rock violin. Currently, Webb is gearing up for a national tour in support of his new release, Journey With Me.
