US singer Noah Deist releases “Seasons”.

by Christopher Smith

Noah Deist is an American singer, songwriter, and musician based in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Noah’s sound is derived from a diverse combination of influences and backgrounds, resulting in a style of music that appeals to audiences across the board. His ability to transform life experiences into lyrical melodies in a way that compels audiences to listen and relate sets him apart from other artist. Noah’s latest single, titled “Seasons”, comes from times of change and transitioning, something which everyone experiences at certain points in their lives. “Seasons” combines Noah’s experience with moving around the country and transitioning into college into a song that many young adults making these tough life decisions are able to resonate with.

Noah tells us: “Seasons” comes from a time in my life where I was transitioning out of high school and into college. Everyone who has gone through this transition knows about the intense amount of pressure and stress it holds. And Around that same time my family got word that we would be moving some 20 hours across the country. I had decided to attend college close to where we were living, which meant at college next year I’d be almost 20 hours away from home. Transitioning in college is a major change in life but doing so after your family has moved 20 hours away is a totally different ball game. Thats what this song is about. It combines my experience with moving and transitioning into college into a song that I think a lot of young adults making these tough life decisions will resonate with”.

At seven years old, Noah began his journey into music. Starting with drums (which he learned from his father), Noah quickly moved to piano, guitar, and later vocals. By 8th grade, Noah had already started a band and was leading worship at his home church regularly. These experiences and background heavily influenced Noah as a young musician. Growing up playing music in not only cover bands, but also in the church formed the foundation of Noah’s musical passions. It is from these foundations and experiences that Noah discovered his desire to tell stories through music. Meaningful stories that have a positive impact on those listening. Noah’s single “Onward” was released in November 2018, with an overarching tone of positivity, this love song encourages listeners to keep pressing onward in their relationships and lives, even when the future is unclear.

Written by Christopher Smith

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
