Biography

Shaina Noll was born in 1955 and grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. After sojourns in Dallas and the San Francisco Bay area, she lived for 24 years in Santa Fe, New Mexico and moved to Port Townsend, Washington in August of 2008.
She married to Richard Noll in 1985 who has been a collaborator on all of her recordings and is also her partner in their business, Singing Heart Productions.

The spiritual domain is at the center of everything Noll’s life, and is reflected in all of her work. With the concept of Namaste’ as her guide, cultivation and deepening of compassion and respect for everyone, and all of life is ongoing practice.

Noll loved singing for as long as she can remember. Her original training was in acting, and it was in BFA and MFA theatre programs that she received much of her vocal training. In 1978 - what turned out to be her last year of acting training - Noll had some powerful spiritual experiences that disrupted and powerfully changed the direction of her life. She gave up acting and was inspired to study transpersonal psychology, and received a master’s degree from the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology in Menlo Park, California in 1984.

Noll spent years singing her children to sleep, with a repertoire of chants learned at ITP, songs she made up, and traditional lullabies. In 1991, while singing to her son Mischa one night, NolI had a clear and dramatic inspiration: “Consider the possibility that the songs you sing to your children could be a gift to adults who were never sung to …”. A powerful and deeply fulfilling new direction in her life began. Songs for the Inner Child was released in 1992, and three other CD’s between 1995 and 2007.
