Underground and Upcoming: Noah Woods

by

17-year-old high school senior Noah Woods is on the track for big things. With a mixtape coming out next month, Stoners Welcome, and multiple performances for upcoming Georgia State events, he’s on the come up!  I’m just glad I can say I knew him in his beginning years! He’s been doing music for almost 3 years now and will never look back. With no formal training, Noah learned to mix his own beats and music himself off YouTube! Isn’t it crazy what you can learn from the internet? Read more below!

Cliché: When did you first start making music?
Noah Woods: When I was 15, during freshman year of high school, but I didn’t really start “professionally” until I was 16.
What inspired you to start?
I just love music. I knew I was going to be doing music for the rest of my life, but I just didn’t think it was going to be rapping.
What inspires you now?
Experiences, honestly. I just like to talk about stuff I live, stuff I do, and stuff I want to work out for me.
Do you play any instruments?
I’ve tried to play guitar, but I wasn’t very good at it.
Do you have any formal training?
Nope.
Do you write and produce your own music?
I write it all myself, but I have my own producer. I started mixing my own music, and I actually learned that off YouTube! I don’t have any formal equipment, but I usually just need to download a program to mix it all.
How do you get your music out?
Usually just social media: Instagram and Twitter. And I release music through my SoundCloud account (Check out: Noah Wood$)
What do you like most and what do you like least?
I like to be able to express myself. Any type of art, photography, music, clothes, whatever it is, I like the form of expression that comes from it. I don’t like how people act towards music and the business side of it. I don’t like dealing with the business aspect of it, I just want to make the music. 
What is your typical day like?
I’m still in high school, so I get up and go to class Monday-Friday, but when I’m out around 3:30, I go straight home and grab something to eat, first of all! Usually, I go straight to the studio after that until about 10pm, usually. I’ll go about 4-5 days out of the week.
What advice would you give someone just starting out?
Take your time in releasing your music; perfect it first. Don’t be so eager to put it out so fast. And stay true to yourself. Don’t change your music to go with what’s hot, just do what you want to do.
