#About Noah Dillon

“I remember the first time I listened to music that I connected to personally. I was in year 8 on the bus to school listening to Bright Eyes on my mum's iPod.”

22-year-old Freo songwriter Noah Dillon started writing music at the age of 17 or 18. “Before that I was writing poetry and short stories and then translated that passion into songwriting.”

“Writing music is my favourite thing in the whole world. It is the ultimate form of escapism that allows me to process the world around me, express my emotions and connect with people in a way I never knew was possible.”

Cathartic indie-rock meets folk storytelling, with carefully crafted instrumentation to match the emotion of the lyrics. “We try to make the soundscape follow the same dynamic as the emotions and stories of the songs… they range from soft and delicate to heavy and fast.”

Live, everything gets taken to another level. “Our live shows tend to be a lot more raucous than our recorded content… [there’s] a lot of dancing, lots of crying and lots of me jumping around.”

Being part of #TheBIGSOUND50 is a “dream come true” for the band, who are excited to gain as much knowledge and support as they can from the industry. “[We’re] focusing on reaching out to publishers, record labels and international agents to extend our possibilities of touring, recording and releasing music.” Finally getting back on the road is their number one goal for the moment, where they’re gunning to play their biggest shows yet. “Thinking long term, we want to create a dedicated fan base around the whole world that watches us grow and change as a band.”

The slowing down of the live scene has hit a lot of artists hard this year, but Noah says he’s used the time to “explore recording and production on a whole new level”. “We now have a huge bag of songs that are ready to be released one day soon!” 

He’s also happy to see the music industry make equality a priority. “I think the industry is slowly becoming a more progressive and healthy place with more emphasis being put on diversity and accountability.”

Around The SoundNew EP For Noah Dillon

Wed 9 Oct 2019



Fremantle songwriter Noah Dillon is building a name for himself around Australia. His lyric-driven music is a melting pot of honest stories and emotional tales, seamlessly colliding mundane existence with the darkest depths of life.

It’s been a whirlwind 2 years. Numerous singles released, tours around Australia, a visit to Music Matters in Singapore, and sharing the stage with the likes of Paul Dempsey, Stella Donnelly, and Holy Holy have all helped Noah Dillon grow into a loveable performer.

On stage the band blends elements of indie rock and alternative folk in a cathartic concoction that looks to juxtapose the mundanities of life with some of its deepest questions. Known for raw emotion and euphoric soundscapes expect to dance, laugh and cry all at the same time.

With new music on the horizon and signing to the very reputable New World Artists for bookings the band are preparing for big things in 2021.
