Shannon Noll… The Story So Far…


SHANNON NOLL will be releasing his biography ‘Shannon Noll So Far…’ on Monday October 1. Published by New Holland, the book is written by Shannon with Alan Whiticker, a Sydney writer. Shannon will also release a brand new single ‘Man I Can Trust’ on the same day.

‘Shannon Noll: So Far…’ tells the whole story … brother, son, husband, father … the journey from his early days on the family farm near Condobolin and as an unknown singer to one of Australia’s premier recording and performing artists. This book also explores the pain the Noll family suffered with the loss of their father, Neil, Shannon’s subsequent depression and drug usage and the battles he waged against his critics and the music industry.

Full of showbiz anecdotes and country philosophy, the book will also display Shannon’s private side … the powerful bond he built with his brothers, his relationship with and marriage to Rochelle, the mother of his three young children.

‘There’s a difference between belief and ego… you’ve got to have a little bit of ego in this game… I think I’ve proved I’m no flash in the pan; I have a career and I can sell a tour… I’ve come so far, and yet there’s so far still to travel.’

Shannon Noll captured the hearts of music fans around Australia and overseas with his raw, gifted rock voice. Shannon remains the only Australian male artist to have ten consecutive singles in the top ten ARIA charts.

His book retails for $32.95 and will be available in bookshops and department stores nationally or download it from Amazon or Apple iBookstore.


Alan J Whiticker was born in Sydney, Australia in 1958. Since 1986 he has pursued the dual roles of teacher and successful author. In 1997 he completed his Masters Degree in Education.

Previous books include The Encyclopedia of Rugby League Players, Jimmy Barnes: Say It Loud, Wanda: The Untold Story of the Wanda Beach Murders and The Battle of Troy – An Adaption of Homer’s Iliad, Speeches That Reshaped the World to name a few.
