  • (1888PressRelease) October 22, 2014 - "Noah's voice is in perfect harmony with the integrity and honesty of his songs".

    Quincy Jones
    "Noah Francis Johnson seems to understand that less really is more, and sometimes the greatest impact can come from the lightest of blows."

    Clash Magazine
    "One to watch".

    The Independent
    Noah Francis Johnson was born in Wales, Tiger Bay to a mix race household and had his schooling in the world without the protective shield of political correctness of today, realities were bare and raw.

    The collections of songs in the EP are a reflection of Noah's social consciousness. "There is nothing I won't say it's all I've got left you are not taking that away" from song Bleed.

    Bleed the first track of the EP escalates musically and spiritually to surround the listener with questions, laments and righteous anger delivered with deep soulful passion and an immovable stance "my back is against this wall and you are standing in my way".

    Harvest Tree E.P protests, pleads and points to a way, but above all else it's a window to one man's soul and a gathering of beautifully crafted songs with relevance, empathy and love.

    The second musical piece, For A Long Time, beautifully and delicately vocalizes new rallying songs for the Conscientious, it points at enforced disparity extending hope and remedies. "In the age of acceptance tolerance has left us".

    I Have Been Thinking visits the crossroads of blues posing timeless questions and inviting the listener to a common perspective "blues is a gateway to realization and drawing strength from shared suffering" Noah.

    Harvest Tree the title track of the E.P creates a soft cushion of delicate melodies where weary souls can listen intently while Noah guides them through the map of a universal city filled with contradictions and random yet connected observation "did you know there is sisters dying some because of what you are buying".

    Harvest Tree E.P is rooted in Noah's wider social views and issues that surround us, punctuating every song with words that echo and reverberate in the listeners very being. Noah transcends contemporary boundaries in genres with depth, richness of spirit and prowess that come straight from the heart.

    Paul Stacey the guitarist most known for his work with for Oasis, Andy Treacy the drummer from Faithless and Chris Kimsey most known for his work with Rolling Stones are among a selection of the contributors on Harvest Tree. Harvest Tree was recorded at Abbey Road studios.

    Noah's E.P opens the gateway to the new album "Tiger Bay" and an invitation by Jean-Michel Bernard the long time music collaborator for Ray Charles, to step into the great man's shoes bringing into fruition a concept album originally penned for Ray.

    Harvest Tree is far more than EP It's the start of a conversation with everyone. It's an invitation to reflect and join in the chorus. He also has a show coming up at KPH London on the 22nd October to launch Harvest Tree E.P.
