Elaine Noel is a native of Port Townsend, a quaint Victorian town in Washington state, where she trained her horses, played guitar, and collected rocks from the beaches. She traveled to England with a band when she was eighteen, then moved to Maui at twenty-four, where she met her future husband. Together, they moved to Southern California and raised three wonderful daughters. She has been a chef, a bookkeeper, a CNA, a conference coordinator for a NASA-funded conference center, and cut two albums of original songs: “Rainshadow” in 2015 and “Lightning” in 2019. Elaine infuses her love of nature into her storytelling and songwriting.
