About Noah Smith:
Noah Smith is a performing songwriter and independent artist coach who specializes in a natural musical inclination combined of native roots and roadworthy storytelling. Walking the line between Country and Rock-n-Roll with a vivid, ambitious pace. Noah Smith grew up exploring the endless trails of woods and still waters of Brown County, Ohio. At a very young age, Noah knew music would be his life’s path. Cereal bowls turned into drum sets, endless hours of garage band practices, and an insatiable ambition that lyrics and melodies could transcend it all would be early indicators of his life filled with music. As a songwriter and a performer, Noah was influenced by a wide array of musical influence such as Paul Simon, Johnny Cash, Alan Jackson, to bands like Brand New, Taking Back Sunday, and Death Cab for Cutie. Humbled by the impact these greats left on his life, he often reflects on a modified version of his favorite Sir Isaac Newton quote, referring to himself as a boy who has “walked on the shoulders of giants.”  
As his story continues Noah Smith has now had the opportunity to share the stage with some of the industry’s most talented Artist such as Josh Turner, Cassadee Pope, Steve Miller Band, David Alan Coe, Aaron Tippin, Reckless Kelly, Crystal Bowersox, Levi Lowery and Andrew Combs. Noah has continued to grow and flourish as an artist. 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. Touring regionally with several bands over the years, Noah has found himself a home away from home in music city. Lately, Noah finds himself writing on a weekly basis out of Nashville, TN. 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.      
“No matter what the sounds, I was putting on my homemade mixtapes, there was always a story involved. Lyrics mattered most to me if Ohio is the melting pot of the country? My mixtapes were cassettes patchworked together with the same sonic landscape. I can only hope my songwriting does the same.”
