Noah is a Japanese artist and composer. She spent her childhood in an idyllic and snowy place in Japan. The environment has had a significant influence on her style, and continues to do so today. Noah has been producing since Winter 2009. 2011 proved to be a watershed year for Noah. She won a flau remix contest (the “Cokiyu / Your Thorn” Remix Contest). This win gave her the confidence she needed and resulted in her being signed to flau (her first label).

Noah has absorbed various music scenes, and uses her lively singing style and piano playing experience gained from practicing daily since she was a child to create beautiful sounds. She mixes subtle classical piano and minimal static loops with urban hip-hop and R&B flavor. Her unique sound consists of mixture of adult sophistication and childlike abandon, her voices and chorus has whisper side like her label mate Cokiyu and Cuushe, on the other hand feels Jessie Ware’s smoke-hazed. In 2013, she has released two mix tapes with SELA. who known as the producer for Kitty Pryde and also vaporware rapper Siddiq. Noah presents her third mixtape “MOOD” which focus mellow moments in this March, it’s in preparation for her debut album “Sivutie” releasing June 2015.
