Noah Smith is an American performing/songwriter made of flannel, blue jeans, he is a modern day, country-rock, Springsteen.
From the still waters of Brown County, Ohio comes a man who walks on the shoulders of giants. Noah Smith is a true American Songwriter. At the age of twelve Noah picked up his friends hand-me-down 1970’s telecaster and began to find his path.
Like the endless trails of woods he pondered through as a child, Noah soon fell in love with the sounds of an acoustic guitar. This led to a thirst for adventure and a desire to explore the possibilities of music.
At a young age, he joined a rock and roll band and started putting his words to work. Ever since…Noah’s musical career has become a labour of love. With an ambitious attack at writing songs, everyday simple prose and melody immediately found their way into the form of song. After high school, Noah finished college at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. While tuning his ear as a musician and a creative artist he began building life experiences. His songwriting began to flourish. Heart Ache, God’s Blessing, and the Devils conviction all have found their way into his life and his songs.
With several music adventures and releases under his belt both successful and not…he decided to step out on his own and start his solo career. At times when he was compared to Bruce Springsteen Noah found a home on dark lit stages and smoke filled bars, all perfectly graced with the motion of taping cigarettes and boot heels to the beat.
Lyrically Noah creates a simple home for his listeners to briefly escape to. Musically his energy and presence on stage impacts rooms large and small.
From the banks of the Ohio river, to the hills of Tennessee Noah has been reaching his new audience with a stride in his step along a very blessed road.
Touring regionally with several bands along the years, Noah has found himself a home away from home in music city.
In recent months he has been writing monthly out of Nashville, TN. His current record was tracked at the House of Blues (Nashville) vibrating through the same walls as such artist as Alan Jackson, Gary Allan, and Eric Church. His music is a capsule of childhood faith, ambition, a little bit of love, God’s good word, and the uphill climb to living an American boys dream.
With respect for the days of past and intuition for the great days to come Noah writes in his song Up Hill Both Ways…
Noah is currently in the studio working on his next studio release and booking tour dates for summer 2016
