Biography

Noah Collins is pure, Americana. And at 26 years old, his reputation as one of the region’s hottest up and coming independent folk artists is growing like wildfire.

A Chattanooga native, Noah Collins lived in the Dominican Republic for two years. It was there in the “campos” where Collins says he developed his percussive finger picking style. 2007 brought him back home to begin work on his debut release Heart on a Line. Americana-UK gave the album 7 of 10 stars after its release in 2008.

With coarse, heart-filled vocals comparable to Manchester-born musician David Gray and American songwriter Jackson Browne, Noah Collins delivers a moving performance. A compositional minimalist, Collins compliments simple words with discreet rhythms.

To support Heart on a Line He is playing all over the southeast in big city venues, colleges, festivals, cafes, and coffee houses. Noah Collins is a regular at regional venues like Decatur’s Eddie’s Attic, and Chattanooga’s Rhythm and Brews.

Lyrics

Long Distance Call

Written By: Noah A. Collins ©2004

Verse
She took off to law school in Boston. I’ve never been this close to diein’.
Sitting here listening on the telephone to her apologies and her cryin’.

Chorus
Well I still play in bars in Chattanooga. I still like to watch that highway all night long.
I like standing alone under stage lights singin’ song about a girl who’s gone away.

Guitar Break 1 measure

Verse
She ran off and married a fancy doctor. Mother told her “money will treat you right.”
She still calls long distance on the telephone when he doesn’t come home or they’ve been in a fight.
She says “I’d like to catch a train back to choo choo town. I could be there tomorrow if I drive on through the night.”
She I ain’t felt home since I left. And she asks me on more time just to tell here what it’s like.

Build

Chorus
And I say I still play in bars in Chattanooga. I still like to run that highway all night long.
I like standing alone under stage lights singin’ songs about all the girls that go and skip town.

Hannah

Written By: Noah A. Collins ©2007

Verse
A rich man Hannah, a rich man will buy you the world
While a poor man Hannah you’d have his heart, that’s all he can afford
But he’ll love you Hannah he’ll love you till the wheels fall off.
Yes a poor man Hannah a poor man gives you his heart.

Harmonica Solo

Verse
The mountain Hannah the mountain’s a mighty fine home
But the valley Hannah is not so far it lies at the toss of a stone
It’s a fine place Hannah for the corn and your children to grow
In the valley Hannah a poor man will build you a home.

Verse
A poor man Hannah a poor man will tell you no lies.
The truth is Hannah it’s in his eyes where his treasure lies
A rich man Hannah his treasures will never do.
While a poor man Hannah could only be rich married to a woman like you, like you
