Louisiana native singer/songwriter Noa Jamir has released new song “Subside” via Weird Sister Records. The single addresses the hard process of changes that, ultimately, bring us back to our selves and our strengths.
Speaking on “Subside,” Noa Jamir says:
This is a song about being on the outside of everything you’ve once known and finding out who you are on your own. It hurts until it doesn’t hurt anymore.
In 2019, Jamir released an EP, Solemn Nights, Brighter Days, debuting the first songs she wrote on guitar. She has since then recorded a sophomore EP, Water the Garden, an introspective collection of songs recorded during the 2020 pandemic. Alongside recording her own music, Jamir co-writes with local musicians and has been featured on records from Wakai (“Evening Sun”), Mariah Houston (“Kept”) and Shmoo (“someday//outro“).
In recent times, Noa Jamir has performed at Essence Festival in New Orleans as a part of The High Priestesses Collective. While living in Lafayette, she can be found playing in record stores, bookstores, cafes, and other intimate places around the city. Jamir is currently in the process of recording her debut album, Cicada, releasing in early 2024.
