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 garageband 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 opportunity to share the stage with some of the industry’s most talented Artist such as Josh Turner, Cassade 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 mix tapes, 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.”
Noah is a graduate of the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music with a degree in Electronic Media, Music Production and Audio & Video Design. It was during college while building life experiences, Noah’s songwriting began to flourish. Heart Ache, God's Blessing, and the devils conviction all found their way into his life and the lyrics he penned. After deciding to go out on his own and start his solo career, Noah received numerous accolades including Nominations for Best Live Act, Best Country Artist and Artist of the year 2016 Cincinnati Entertainment Awards. Noah has several releases on various Media Outlets and is currently touring 10 states throughout the midwest.
With God given talent and natural musical inclination, Noah’s old soul, deep thinking, and love for lyrics led him to an aggressive path of writing songs, everyday simple prose and melody immediately found their way into storytelling at its best, songwriting.
Accompanied by a collection of honest and original songs that are ripe for introducing a new legion of fans to the realm of Country Music, Brent Keith brings with a him the experience of a seasoned professional, paired with a genuine, soulful style that is delivered with a voice that conveys a raw and emotional aspect to every note he sings.
“Singing and performing gives me a sense of pure joy. The pressure that comes with knowing I have to deliver, both on stage and in the studio, is a challenge, and I live for that! My greatest hope is that people will relate to my music and that it will touch their lives in one way or another. As an artist, you pray that when you write a song people will be able to identify with you and your experiences. When that happens, you know you’ve succeeded.”
Growing up in Blanchester, Ohio, Brent Keith had a taste of what Country Music and a rural upbringing embody early in his life: working hard, valuing loved ones, learning to appreciate the simple things, and having a strong faith in God.
Music was always an influential part of Brent’s life. He grew up singing songs in church and then went on to join his Jr. High School Choir. Once in High School, he became the lead singer for a local band and eventually stepped out on his own after graduation to pursue his career in Country Music.
In 2004 Brent Keith auditioned for the second season of the USA Network’s reality television series, “Nashville Star” and made it onto the show to be one of the top 10 contestants. After the show ended, he and his wife decided to leave Ohio to begin a new life and career in Music City. Success came quickly for Brent, as Combustion Music offered him an artist development deal and, eventually, a publishing deal. The first single to come from this new pairing, “Looking for a Road”, drew interest from CMT and it quickly became the theme song for the NASCAR themed movie “Dale”, based on the real life of famed NASCAR driver, Dale Earnhardt. The video for the song held its place on CMT’s “Top 20 Countdown” for five consecutive weeks and to promote the single, Brent began a multi-state radio tour and visited 31 stations across the country. Additionally, he was invited by CMT to perform on “Studio 330 Sessions” and was also featured in various television interviews and segments.
After the excitement of the movie soundtrack and radio tour, an opportunity presented itself in the summer of 2008 for Brent to audition for season 8 of “American Idol.” The judges did not overlook his voice and charisma, and he succeeded in making it to the show’s group of “Top 36” performers.
As a result of his exposure on “American Idol”, in the summer of 2010, Brent traveled to Northern Ireland to headline a major festival and indeed expand his fan base. While there, he forged a relationship with Impact Music Group. (Artist Management)
Brent is currently spending his time capitalizing on his successes and using the knowledge gained from these experiences to continue building his career. In between his live shows, Brent is constantly working on writing songs and recording new music in preparation for a new album to be released soon.
A songwriter looks through a different lens when he looks at the world around him. At any second a flicker of light, a statement in a passing conversation, or the deafening intensity of silence can become the catalyst for the chance to write the next song. The race to put on paper the fleeting thought. One that won't take long before it vanishes.
That craft has been in the life of Michael Moeller ever since he picked up an instrument and knew he had something to say. Referred to as an "Old Soul", Michael writes the songs he sees around him, writes the songs he feels, and writes the songs he experiences. Life, Loss, Love, Joy, Faith.
