If you’re a fan of true, heartfelt, pop-alternative music, you’re about to meet your new favorite artist: Noran Brown. Born and raised in the vibrant city of Las Vegas, Nevada, Brown now resides in North Las Vegas, bringing a fresh and distinctive sound to the music industry that is sure to catch your ear.
In an era when TikTok trends and viral hits often dictate the mainstream music scene, Brown stands out as an artist who insists on authenticity. His approach to music is refreshingly simple: he creates songs that sound good to him. It’s not about following trends or satisfying algorithms, it’s about the genuine love for his craft.
Starting his journey as a songwriter in 2017, Noran Brown made the leap to recording in 2021. Inspired by an eclectic mix of artists ranging from the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, to the soulful Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, and contemporary game-changers like Tyler the Creator and Frank Ocean, Brown’s music resonates with sincerity and a profound depth of emotion.
His latest release, “Will We Meet Again,” is no exception. The track, which dropped on May 9th, 2023, was produced by Wil Anspach and showcases Brown’s affinity for soulful pop infused with an alternative edge.
This song, inspired by a high school party he once attended, holds a special place in his heart and you can hear that in every chord, every lyric. The vibe during the recording process was chilled and relaxed, setting the stage for a creation that is as real and honest as the artist himself.
Among his discography, Brown holds a special affection for his track “Blessing” from his debut project. A tribute to spontaneity in music-making, this track was born out of a four-minute freestyle session with Anspach. Moments like these truly encapsulate Brown’s approach to music – organic, authentic, and driven by pure enjoyment.
Despite the concerns he holds about the current state of the music scene, with its suppression of good music for the sake of profit and fame, Brown maintains his focus and drive. He has no grand plans for the future of his artistry, only the hope to continue creating sounds he loves and exploring new musical avenues.
His advice to young, aspiring artists echoes this sentiment: create what you love to hear, and don’t let the opinions of others steer you away from your passion. As someone who values authenticity above all else, Brown dreams of collaborating with the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Tyler the Creator, Frank Ocean, and SZA, artists known for their unique and genuine sound.
