Noah Solt “Cracks Open” Sonic Door for Listeners with “Dawn”

Colorado-raised and SF-based singer/songwriter Noah Solt has returned with his latest single, ‘Dawn,’ on Starita Records. The track explores the human condition, enveloping listeners in an expansive and ethereal sound, complete with the fullness of the Muscle Shoals’ FAME Studio band, The Slow Burners. This is just a taste of what is in store from his upcoming debut album, ‘Big Water,’ a further exploration of self-reflection and hope. The track follows Solt’s first four releases, ‘Spheres,’ ‘After All,’ ‘The Fold,’ and ‘Ever Been,’ lauded by critics as noteworthy additions to contemporary chamber pop and acoustic rock in EARMILK, Notion, Wonderland, and CLASH. The releases also received Top 10 placements across 2.3K+ Spotify playlists. Listeners of Led Zeppelin will find a familiar rock and folk edge in “Dawn.”

Solt’s inherent musical talents found him at Berklee College of Music in Boston during the onslaught of COVID-19. He chose to step away from the clear-cut path of school in 2020, instead opting to follow his heart and become a professional sailor. Along his trips, his music was a guiding force, always with him as he marvelled at the vastness, unchecked power, and beauty of the ocean. 

“I began writing this song while sailing across the Atlantic Ocean,” Solt says. “I was inspired by a powerful, unobstructed sunrise and a full-sky gradient of the morning star chasing the night westward. The song is a metaphor about human nature – the brightest sun casts the darkest shadow, and the darkest night has the most beautiful stars. Life is filled with contrast and challenges; there is beauty and value in both the light and dark moments.” 

Solt concludes,“As an artist, I wanted to capture the feeling of a sun tearing up over the eastern horizon as the sky turns. I hope when fans listen to this song, it cracks a door open for them.”
