Noel Zancanella is an American songwriter and record producer based in Los Angeles, California.

Since 2009, Zancanella has been signed to Patriot Games Publishing,[1] the company founded by OneRepublics Ryan Tedder. The signing came through Zancanella co-writing OneRepublics hit Good Life. That song became the third single from the pop-rock quintets second album, Waking Up (Mosley/Interscope 2009). Good Life has appeared in the films Eat Pray Love, Easy A, and One Day, and in the television shows Cougar Town, Gossip Girl, and One Tree Hill. It peaked at number 8 in the Billboard Hot 100, sold 3.5 million copies, and BMI recognized Zancanellas work with a Songwriters Award.

Since 2009, Noel has written across the pop spectrum with artists such as Maroon 5, BOB, Gym Class Heroes, Gavin DeGraw, and Colbie Caillat.

Zancanellas father was a jazz musician and he grew up playing bass and drums before picking up an MPC drum machine and immersing himself in hip-hop as an artist/producer. In Los Angeles, he took a job at the famous Village Studios and soon found himself working alongside the likes of Janet Jackson and TK. It was an inspiring time for me. It was the first time I was so deeply exposed to pop, Zancanella says. Eventually, he crossed paths with Ryan Tedder who, at the time, was working with Timbaland.

Initially, Zancanella provided beats and tracks, but through his time with Tedder, he expanded his songwriting skills. He is represented by Advanced Alternative Media, Inc.[2]
