Folk-roots / americana musician Noah Derksen, known for his tender musicianship and soul-inspired sound, released Part Two of his third album America, Dreaming, with a streaming premiere via Canadian Beats (http://bit.ly/ND-AD-2-CB) this morning. Part Two is available digitally everywhere: http://bit.ly/ND-AD-2
“Part Two of this album comes from several eye-opening experiences for me,” said Noah. “In travelling to Vietnam, moving out of my van and into a real house in my hometown, and realizing that financial strain becomes a definite reality when you turn 25. We’re all just trying to make the wheel spin.”
He will be performing a house concert in Prince George July 26.
America, Dreaming is a full-length record containing Noah’s observation of his own American identity as an American-citizen growing up in Canada. Written through time spent living and travelling across the country – from Oregon to Nashville, and New York to California – this collection of songs were recorded and produced by Murray Pulver (The Bros. Landreth, Joey Landreth, Doc Walker, etc.) in Winnipeg, Canada.
The album will be released in 3 distinct parts throughout 2019, with Part Two out on July 5th and the full album in October. Part Two is supported by a 23-date tour primarily through British Columbia, with dates throughout Western Canada.
An American-citizen born and raised in the heart of the Canadian prairies and maturing on the west coast of British Columbia, NoahDerksen writes with the groundedness of harsh Manitoba winters mixed with the optimism of British Columbia’s coastline. Ever seeking motion and progression, Noah has spent the past three years honing his live performance skills across Canada and in select regions of the United States, playing concerts from BC to Nova Scotia, and New York to California. In 2018 alone, Noahplayed at renowned venues and events such as the National Arts Centre (Ottawa, ON), Northwest Folklife Festival (Seattle, WA), Trout Forest Music Festival (Ear Falls, ON), and the Winnipeg Folk Festival (Winnipeg, MB).
