Before entering music school, Ramsey Noah aka noa the producer had already placed in the prestigious UNISONG International Song contest and played guitar, bass, flute and keyboards in two Texas-based bands. During his last year in college, he started a jingle business in the Boston area, successfully placing several original jingles with regional New England companies. It was during this time that his interest in instrumental and soundtrack music began to grow and upon graduation, he accepted a position working on music for the CBS drama, CSI: Las Vegas. Having written music for this show, soundtracks for many short films, and having been nominated for Best Classical Piece (one of seven finalists) and Best Instrumental Piece (one of ten finalists) in the American Songwriting Awards, Ramsey is also an accomplished composer.
After CSI, Ramsey collaborated with Grammy nominated mix engineer & producer Luke Tozour (Katy Perry, Pink, etc.) and hit songwriter Gordon Pogoda (top ten songs in England including for the artist, Steps and a number one song in Russia). He also works with the noted Japanese producer and arranger, Chikara “Ricky” Hazama (BoA, Leah Dizon, Jordyn Taylor). He has formed deep relationships with publishing companies and sync-focused music houses like Riptide Music Group, Reel Muzik Werks, Activista Music and more. Ramsey also continued to work in television soundtracks securing featured songs on CBS and Netflix series.
He works regularly with alt pop artists, helping them develop new material and pitch their songs to tv/film opportunities. He’s recently been chosen to be interviewed for VoyageLA Magazine’s Thought-Provokers artist series as well.
Developing his unique sound over the last few years living in Los Angeles, he has been most recently influenced by mura masa, Labyrinth, Oh Wonder, and Banks. Additionally, Ramsey has several artist projects he produces and writes for including, Bo Revoir, Lo, Gotta Wanna and lifeonearth. He is always listening and exploring, trying to push the boundaries or pop music while still staying relatable and commercial. Pop is not only about being hooky and getting stuck in the listeners head, it’s also deeply about tapping into something universal, something a large number of people can relate to. So here, listening and exploring not only means listening for new sounds and musical ideas it also means for concepts when talking to people in daily life, in the news or social media.
He is classically trained in guitar and voice and fluent in Japanese as well. Currently, he’s looking to help out more indie artists bring their vision to life and share their message with the world. He’s excited for what the future holds with his new collaboration with Anara Publishing and hopes to continue to contribute to their high-quality, diverse catalog.
