This Week's Guests Are Noel Gourdin & Mark Beaumont

It seems to be a trend now as yet again we welcome not one but two guests into the virtual studio this week in the form of US top 40 R&B recording artist Noel Gourdin and record-breaking long distance cyclist, adventurer, broadcaster and author Mark Beaumont. 

Noel bio:

Soul and R&B singer Noel Gourdin did not have a traditional childhood. He was born in Brockton, MA but spent his summers with family in Pachuca, Mississippi. The result is a man who is city to the heart but southern to the soul. He honed his skills in Brockton, MA, and by the age of 24 scored a deal with Sony and had his first album in stores. His first exposure to the vocal arts came in church and he was introduced to the larger canon of soul music by his father (who introduced him to the classics, such as Otis Redding) and his brother (who turned him on to the sounds of new jack swing). Noel is influenced by classic soul as well as the contemporary sounds of R&B and hip-hop. Therefore his music is a seamless blend of each genre. “Listening to so much music from so many different eras really helped me put my style together,” explains the gifted singer-songwriter.
