“Noah’s voice is in perfect harmony with the integrity and honesty of his songs”

NOAH FRANCIS JOHNSON releases his first solo album entitled ‘LIFE & TIMES’ on the 24th February, 2014 published by Universal Publishing, Last Ten Music Group and distributed by Warner Music. NOAH’s career has catapulted since touring the UK and Europe supporting the likes of Jamiroquai, Lenny Kravitz as well as soul and jazz poet Gil Scott Heron to name a few. From London to Los Angeles this soulful and deeply personal album includes an extensive catalog of world-class musicians, composers, engineers and producers recorded at Abbey Road and Metropolis Studios.
‘LIFE & TIMES’ is mostly autobiographical. NOAH FRANCIS JOHNSON quotes: “In the moments writing the album I knew I was writing something that deeply defined so many facets of me- my conflicting feelings, reflections of family lost, a child loved, appreciation for the honest man, truth, all carved, shaped and made by the man that inspired me, my father. He had an incredible effect on me, not only as a musician, but as a human being. More than just a culmination of memories, Life and Times is my awakening, letting go, about finding myself”.
Inspired lyrically by Bob Dylan, what strikes you immediately is NOAH’s ability to characterize and express his personal feelings. Piercing the membranous layer of superficiality so many artists find so difficult to describe without sounding cliched, NOAH’s lyrics come to life because he brings them to life, excavating emotionally resonant insights out of words and melody. He is a chronicler of a committed musical journey seamlessly weaving rock, folk and sweet soul with delicate human emotion.

Brought up listening and performing to greats such as Marvin Gaye and Frank Sinatra, NOAH is blessed with a versatile range, depth, richness and power that comes straight from the heart. Not unlike Gaye, NOAH’s diversity has given him the ability to sing rock and roll, blues, soul, practically anything for that matter and make it his own. The albums journey brings about all of these influences, all the while proving himself as a great songwriter and wordsmith. With co-production courtesy of Chris Kimsey, best known for his work with The Rolling Stones, the music is crafted with a storytelling quality about it, brimming with catchy, melodic hooks bound for longevity.

The number of prestigious musicians/ engineers that have contributed to the album is far too long to list; but after a quick glance it is exciting to acknowledge producer Bob Clearmountain who was nominated for four Grammy Awards, artists such as guitarist Gary Grainger well known for his work with David Bowie and Pete Townsend, Pandit Dinesh known as “The Godfather of Percussion” and Edd Hartwell who has worked for renowned acts such as Jeff Beck. Not to mention two time MOBO award winner Kele Le Roc who is a backing vocalist featured on Life & Times; quoting NOAH as ‘’an exceptional talent, whose writing touches upon something unique and genuine’’.

NOAH FRANCIS JOHNSON has already conducted a U.K Radio Interview tour broadcast on stations such as THE EAGLE (UKRD), BBC Radio Wales, BBC Radio WM, RADIO Cardiff, SMOOTH Radio, BBC Radio Stoke, BBC Radio Manchester, YORKSHIRE Radio, BBC Radio Leeds, BBC Radio Merseyside, BBC Radio Sheffield, BBC Radio Nottingham, Q Radio and many more.

Expect imminent updates about NOAH FRANCIS JOHNSON and his exciting new album ‘LIFE & TIMES’.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
