Noah's third CD, "Better Days," is out now
UPDATE: Clips are now available under "Media."
The long-awaited follow-up to "Small Truths" will be available for sale in conjunction with Noah's performance at the Ocrafolk Festival on June 4th and 5th, 2005.

This release comes after months of singles airplay on stations across the country and globe. Here's what one DJ had to say: “A real treasure trove of great songs,” and “Comparing artists may be out of favour, but if you haven’t heard Noah, try imagining David Wilcox and James Taylor writing songs for Al Jarreaux to sing. Then again, don’t do that; just listen to Noah’s latest offering. It’ll definitely make today one of your ‘Better Days.’” -- Phil Young – ‘Folk On The Fringe,’ 3MDR, Melbourne, Australia
