Noel Gallagher praises his backing singers as transformative
Noel Gallagher shot to fame in a group of all men, some of whom weren’t that talented. Since going solo, the world has been his oyster, and during a Q and A which has been posted to YouTube a fan asked “Over the last ten years, who has been your favourite person/artist to collaborate with, either a member of the High Flying Birds or another artist/producer?”
Noel replied “What I’m into at the minute, I’ve got these three girls who do backing vocals for me and they’re called called Roxy,” and went on to say how they’d transformed his writing:
“The single that’s coming after this one which is called ‘Flying On The Ground’, when I was doing that…I thought the song was good, and I thought it would turn out good, but they come up with this backing vocal part and when they sang it on the track, it elevated it… Every time I write a song now, I hear those girls in the background somewhere doing something amazing so at the moment, it’s them…”
