Missguided Discovered: Noelle Chiodo
We caught up with US-based singer and songwriter, Noelle Chiodo, to speak about her time in lockdown, her sense of style and her new single “That’s it, I’m Done”. This breakup anthem is filled with empowering messages, which she channels through all of her songs. We are obsessed with her cutting edge lyrics and powerful vocals.
Originally from Las Vegas, but now based in LA, she is not only the girl we wanna be friends with, but she is the girl we all wanna BE, period.

That’s It, I’m Done- Noelle Chiodo
Noelle Chiodo Q+A
Hey Noelle, thanks for chatting to us, how are you?
I’m doing great right now, I’m so excited to be talking with Missguided!
Tell us a little bit about yourself!
I’m a pop singer songwriter originally from Las Vegas, but now based in LA. And if I were to describe my music in a few words it would be female empowerment, honesty, and passion.
How has the reception been to That’s It, I’m Done?
The reception has been absolutely amazing. I’m so excited that it has reached so many people and that so many people relate to it. When I wrote “That’s It, I’m Done“, I wrote it with the intent of helping someone that’s been played to demand their respect back and give them a sense of empowerment. It’s a song that I want people that have been played to just sing along to and have fun. Also, it’s made Discover Weekly on Spotify a few times, which is always exciting!

Which of your songs means the most to you and why?
As far as my music that’s out, it would be between “That’s It, I’m Done” and “Your Love’s Got Me Blinded”. “That’s It, I’m Done” is so special to me because it’s the first song that I’ve put out where I’m just completely transparent about what I was going through and I think in a way taught me how to be more vulnerable in my art. Also, the writing and production process of this song was enlightening because it gave me a sense of empowerment and helped me gain my self respect back after coming out of a darker head space. This song was a reminder to me to know my worth, keep my standards high, and have a zero tolerance policy for the fuckboy behavior and again that’s what I want this song to do for people listening.
“Your Love’s Got Me Blinded” means so much to me too because it was dedicated to domestic violence and included participation from the domestic violence hotline as well as beautiful, strong domestic violence survivors. That project will always hold a special place in my heart because of it’s purpose and the amazing people I was honored to work with.
How has lockdown affected your creativity?
Some days are good and some days are bad. I think everybody can relate to that. If I’m not feeling up to par creatively though, I don’t force myself to work, but rather I take my dog for a really long walk, do some yoga, bake, meditate, hang out with family, etc. Just anything to keep my spirit up and stay in a good headspace!
We love the female empowerment and strength behind the lyrics, why is it so important to you?
Absolutely! As females, I believe we all have our own stories of struggle and sometimes we don’t always realize just how strong and resilient we are until we’re put to the test and come out on the other side even stronger. I’m proud to be a woman and am blessed to be surrounded by and inspired by so many great women. Female empowerment is always a message that I want to convey not only in my music, but in my actions. It’s 2020 and women deserve nothing less of respect and equality.

What were your favourite albums as a teenager?
It’s always soooo hard narrowing my favorites down because there’s so many great songs and artists that I love, but to name a few….Red and 1989 by Taylor Swift, Stripped by Christina Aguilera, Unplugged by Alicia Keys, Mind Body and Soul by Joss Stone, 1000 Forms of Fear by Sia, and Melodrama by Lorde. I’m sure there’s more, but that’s what comes off the top of my head!
What do you like to do when you aren’t creating music?
I don’t know if this sounds lame, but I love walking my dogs haha. I also enjoy spending time with my family and friends and I love cooking and baking. I’m pretty active, but specifically enjoy anything outdoors and love yoga as well. And I love going to dance classes.
What do you wear to feel most confident when performing?
It sort of just depends on the day. I think anyone can agree that some days you feel more confident in certain clothes. I generally like to be comfortable though because I want the freedom to move and focus on the performance. I can say that I have order clothes from Missguided for MANY performances though!
What’s your proudest career moment so far?
Recently, a few great things have happened that I’m super stoked about. I just released a single with the collaboration of Yagiz Ince on Lost Frequencies Compilation Album under his label, Found Frequecies!
That single has had amazing reciprocation as well and was featured on a Spotify editorial playlist, Friday Crate Diggers. This was also my first release affiliated with a label, so I’m stoked about that! And I just had a song placed in a Netflix series, Selling Sunset. It’s hard to pick a “proudest” career moment, but these two are both recent firsts that I’m SUPER excited about. And here’s to the first of many.
