Chris Noah’s EP or mini-album’s “Distance” concert, which was scheduled for September 26, will be moved to “Splendid Palace” and December 6. Two concerts will be performed that day, one at 17:00 and the other at 20:00.
“For some time now, we have been searching and considering the most logical ways to make the concert happen, following all the current restrictions and other circumstances arising from them. It is clear that the format and idea of the concert planned at the beginning of the year is currently impossible to implement and is not clear when it would be. After all, we have found what I think is the best solution in the current circumstances – we will be waiting for you at the “Splendid Palace”, where we will be able to gather in two concerts without unnecessary risk and following all safety rules. It’s been a long time since we’ve played bigger concerts, so I’m very excited about this event myself. It is also worth mentioning that in this concert we will perform material that has not been published yet and was created very recently,” Chris comments.
Money for the purchased tickets to the ‘Palladium Rīga’ concert will be returned and they will not be suitable for admission to the concerts at the ‘Splendid Palace’.
Chris Noah (real name: Krists Indrišonoks) has been surrounded by music from an early age, however, as a youngster, he didn’t care much for music, and focused more on sports like hockey and basketball. At the age of 17, he re-discovered the guitar. By the time he was 20, Krists and his brother had recorded his first single “Had It All” and he took on his stage name – Chris Noah. A year later, his second single “You” won an award from the Latvian Authors Society as one of the most played tracks of 2016.
An EP “What About Tomorrow” followed, and the EP was nominated for the best debut at the Latvian music awards “Zelta Mikrofons”.
In 2018, Chris Noah, in collaboration with a London-based producer Kristofer Harris, recorded 3 songs – “River”, “Fall Through” and “Inside Out”. With the release of these songs, Chris’ music started being noticed by international blogs (Indie Air, AlexRainBirdMusic, Wolf in a Suit, Uranium Music, Purple Melon Mystic Sons, Music Injection), while “Fall Through” became the musician’s most played song on Latvian radios.
This summer Chris released his latest EP “Distance” of four tracks, produced in collaboration with London-based producer Kristofer Harris. According to Chris this album is special:
“For the first time, not all the songs are about my own life, I have observed more – my friends and other people surrounding me”, he explains.
The first single off the new EP, “The Line”, was released on January 17th and got an impressive radio airplay in Latvia. The song was written together with Noah’s keyboardist Marcis Jukumsons- Jukumnieks, whose partnership Chris greatly appreciates: “Marcis has a completely different approach to creating harmonies than I do. It’s a very creative process when his harmonies meet mine.”
