Biography

Noah is an acoustic rock band that reflects a wide variety of influences while retaining a sound that is unique and catchy. They have been in the studio for over eight months recording their debut CD “Rinse & Repeat.” The songs on the CD come across as soulful and heartfelt, and range from melodic love ballads to intense songs about life’s twists and turns. ‘Pedestal’ has already been put in regular rotation on WHFX 107.7, and four tracks receive more than 1000 plays monthly on the internet.

“She twisted her toes in the sand… love the picture you draw with that…”
-Aslyn, Capitol Records Recording Artist

The band got its start in a local coffee shop where Noah Sanders performed a regular solo acoustic show. Noah’s songwriting and “real world” lyrics rapidly drew in fans of all ages and genders. Encouraged by his followers, Noah began to use his contacts from working as a professional sound engineer to get his music heard.

"I've known Noah for a long time, and I'm very glad to discover that he has become a fine songwriter and musician."
-Greg Humphreys, Hobex

Positive feedback persuaded Noah to take the next step. He formed the full band with T.J. Thompson and Marcus Brand of My Dear Allison and took the show on the road. Since then, they have performed all over the Southeast. They have showcased for the Connexion Music Festival in Las Vegas and Jacksonville and are scheduled to showcase at the Talent Rock in Orlando.

Lyrics

Pedestal

Written By: Noah

Noah – Pedestal
©2005 Noah Sanders

I put you on a pedestal
And I was ridiculed for saying how I felt
You can be magic
You can be tragic when you feel all alone
But why did you lie to keep a dead thing alive
When I was better off if you had just let me go

Chorus
I call it a time that I’ve learned
A cold lesson in turn
It’s over and I’m moving on
But this something won’t let me

My friends think I’m a fool
For not following an invitation home
I am now jaded
I am frustrated with not feeling like I’m whole
Why did you lie to keep a dead thing alive
When I was better of if I just didn’t know

Chorus
I call it a time that I’ve learned
A cold lesson in turn
It’s over and I’m moving on
But this something won’t let me

So head on down that river
Where it’s wet and cold
Cause there’s something better
On the other side of that stream
Maybe it will make you scream
Maybe make you dream
Maybe a little in between

Chorus
I call it a time that I’ve learned
A cold lesson in turn
It’s over and I’m moving on
But this something won’t let me

I Need You

Noah – I Need You
©2004 Noah Sanders

She’s night and I’m torn
It’s like we’re all alone
In this mystic light cascades a mystery

Is this right to feel me
Touching you… nothing between us
As we dance between stars all around

I need you
I need you
If I could have just one thing
You know just what I chose?
Baby, I chose you

Your eyes I see through
I cannot lie to you
I have never felt so lost but so at home

I need you
I need you
If I could have just one thing
You know just what I chose?
Baby, I chose you

I need you
I need you
If I could have just one thing
You know just what I chose?
Baby… I need you
I need you
If I could have just one thing
You know just what I chose?
Baby, I chose you

One Summers Eve

Written By: Noah

Noah – One Summer’s Eve
©2005 Noah Sanders

She took a walk beneath the summer moon
Yea, laughed at the roses and smiled at the sea
Hey, she twisted her toes in the silky sand
And chased down the laughter
Held tightly to its hands

Chorus
Then they spun around and around
Till they fell down and rolled on the salty ground
The pause… the kiss… the unbroken stare
As she fell down, and fell in love
One summer’s eve

He took a walk to talk about the simple things
Yea, just to be closer to a girl… to get to know her
Then he spread his arms into the gentle breeze
Being chased by the laughter
Then he turns and there she stands

Chorus
Then they spun around and around
Till they fell down and rolled on the salty ground
The pause… the kiss… the unbroken stare
As he fell down, and fell in love
One summer’s eve

As they lay entwined, the symphony
Of the wind in the saw grass and the pulsating beat
Of their hearts first discovery
And the realization of two lover’s dreams

Chorus
Yea they spun around and around
Till they fell down and rolled across the salty ground
The pause… the kiss… the unbroken stare
As they fell down, and fell in love
One summer’s eve…
One summer’s eve…
One summer’s eve

She's So Beautiful (But So Wrong)

Written By: Noah

Noah – She’s So Beautiful (But So Wrong)
©2004 Noah Sanders

I sit and stare
As she walk by me I wonder
What she’s like and where she goes
When everything’s all wrong
When everything’s all gone
And all her bridges burn

Chorus
But I don’t need to know
Cause she’s so beautiful
And I don’t need to see
Cause she’s so wrong for me
She’s so beautiful, but so wrong

Another sits down beside me
I wonder what she’d say
If I asked her to go away
Maybe for just this one day

Chorus
But I don’t need to know
Cause she’s so beautiful
And I don’t need to see
Cause she’s so wrong for me
She’s so beautiful, but so wrong
She’s so beautiful, but so wrong
She’s so wrong
What do you think she’d say
When everything goes away
She’s so beautiful, but so wrong…

Just Me

Written By: Noah

Noah – Just Me
©2004 Noah Sanders

Is this the last time you’ve left me to deal on my own?
My ship is listing, and my hull is filling up
I’m going down alone
I can’t tell which way I’m rolling
I’m so dizzy and I just want to go home
But its not there… if it ever was.

I am a stranger once again
Just when I thought I was getting close
My friends have dwindled, and there’s no one I can trust
To help me work this out
If only the one I need the most wasn’t castaway
How did I cast her away?
But she’s not there

Chorus
Maybe someday you’ll see how
I will keep my head above the water
And maybe someday you’ll see why
I am not a puzzle or a riddle, I’m just me
And that’s all I’ve ever learned to be

Twisting and turning, God help me
I can’t seem to find my way up
My compass is gone, and it’s dark as before the dawn
Is there anyone out there?

Chorus x2
Maybe someday you’ll see how
I will keep my head above the water
And maybe someday you’ll see why
I am not a puzzle or a riddle, I’m just me
And that’s all I’ve ever learned to be

The Crush

Written By: Noah

Noah – The Crush (Hnh?)
©2004 Noah Sanders

I am almost healed
Got to open now and begin to reveal
That my world is not so small
Got to pull my heart from beneath all these scars

Hnh?

Why I avoid her stares?
Even when she’s gone, I wish she was there
I want to speak out but I put it off
So I sit up here wondering where lies her heart

Though I saw at these chains that bind my heart
The links come away shiny and clean
I want to break away, run to you, tell you how I feel
But instead I run away

Hnh?
