ONE of Australia's favourite performers is coming to the Clarence Valley.

Since rising to prominence on Australian Idol in 2003, Shannon Noll has become one of the country's most recognised artists.

Possessing a unique gift for connecting with audiences, Shannon is touring Australia promoting his fifth album A Million Suns and his new autobiography Shannon Noll: The Story So Far.

Tomorrow, Shannon will perform at the Yamba Bowling Club, and if you haven't purchased a ticket you better get a move on.

Shannon will be introducing fans to his newest songs, among them a beautiful ballad entitled Would It Be So Bad, co-written with Brooke McClymont of local legends The McClymonts.

Describing A Million Suns as having a little more tempo compared to his previous albums, Shannon said he is looking forward to sharing his new songs with local fans, adding he will be rocking up live performances with music from the new album.

"I'll also be singing a few songs from my earlier albums. What About Me will probably get another run," he said.

"I intentionally wrote a lot of songs on the new album for live performances and I love getting up on stage, enjoying the feeling of confidence and seeing the fans enjoying themselves.

"I performed in Yamba a few years ago and I'm really excited to be coming back."

Although he admits it is difficult to choose a personal favourite from among his long list of songs, Shannon has established a solid reputation for delivering powerful lyrics which tell the stories of life and the hardships some people encounter. Relying on his honesty and regard for sharing personal experiences, Shannon's music has become a symbol of inspiration and connectivity for many.

Like his previous albums, the tracks on A Million Suns came from "observing what a lot of people have to say."

"All the songs tell stories," he said.

One of the songs from the new album which strikes a personal chord with Shannon is Long Way Home, which was written about the experiences of living in hotel room after hotel room while travel- ling and having to spend time away from home and family.

"A lot of people write about personal experiences. When someone hears something they recognise in a song, they can relate to it and they understand that other people are experiencing the same situations they are," Shannon said.

A fan of The McClymonts, Shannon said it was a great experience working with Brooke McClymont on the new album.

"I've never worked with Brooke before," he said. "She is a terrific singer and songwriter and very professional to work with."

Shannon is also celebrating success in a similar industry.

As his reputation as a skilled singer and songwriter continues to grow, he is enjoying plenty of success in the literary world.

Released on October 1, Shannon's autobiography is heading for gold status as more and more fans are quick to grab a copy of Shannon Noll: So Far.
