HI, My Name is Bree Noble

Founder & CEO of Women of Substance

I am a musician, entrepreneur and speaker who is passionate about intentional living, focused learning and creative expression. My mission is to provide tools to help people discover their talents and create their own vision for their future success. 

As for my background, in my corporate days, I was the Director of Finance for a premiere Opera Company, one of the top 15 in the US. After leaving the corporate world to stay home with my young children, I began writing and performing my own songs. I toured as a singer/songwriter for 9 years, releasd 3 CDs and won several songwriting awards. I even had the honor of singing “The National Anthem” at Dodger Stadium. I then began coupling the inspirational message of my songs with a testimony-based speaking topic called “You Are My Vision”, a program I have presented for churches and community groups for the last 8 years.

Although I loved being at home for my kids, I misses the business strategy and “action” of the corporate world. So I created an outlet for my entrepreneurial desires that I could do from home on a flexible schedule.  Because of my experience as an Independent Musician, I have a passion to promote other quality “Indies”. In 2007 I started Women of Substance Radio (, a 24/7 online “radio station” that plays the best music by quality female artists, both label and Indie artists. I consider it a privilege to discover and promote amazing artists who are not getting the promotion they deserve.  The station has become a highly respected and sought-after source of promotion for female artists, pursued by their PR agents and Record Labels. My marketing efforts have cultivated a large Facebook following, significant web traffic, a healthy email list and advertising revenue.

In November 2014, I launched a 5 day per week show which promotes Independent female artists. The podcast has hit #1 in New & Noteworthy for the Music, Arts and Society & Culture categories and #4 Audio Podcast on all of iTunes.

I draw on my extensive experience running my own music business, both as a solo musician and as an Industry professional, to train and mentor other female musicians.
