Singer-Songwriter Nousom Knots music explores the worlds of the individual and the social, from the everyday to the surreal. It is somewhat eclectic, mostly rock/pop oriented with people hearing influences such as Bowie, Neil Young, Jeff Buckley, The Smiths and The Cars.
Nousom Knots trained in both classical and Jazz music but the passion is for self-penned rock tunes with a particular focus on the lyrics of the songs.
A solid groundwork in solo live performance was established by gigging throughout Ireland and in Paris, France over the last couple of years. Most recently, on home ground, he has played the opening act for world renown Smiths/Morrissey tribute ‘These Charming Men’ to capacity audiences, in Ireland’s premier venues, including ‘The Opium Rooms’ Dublin, ‘Spirit Store’ Dundalk, ‘Dolans Warehouse’ Limerick, ‘Purty Loft’, Dun Laoghaire .
With a stock of original material in hand, tried and tested in acoustic live performances, he turned his focus to arranging and recording them with a full-band sound in 2016. ‘Landslide (Dublin Town)’ is the first of several single and video releases planned for the next 6 months. The video for the debut was released on Dec 1st and hit over 10,000 views on Facebook in the first 48 hrs of its release. It has been warmly received on the airwaves, being played on tens of radio stations countrywide and receiving significant accolades from some of Ireland’s top DJ’s. It also got ‘Song of the Day’ on Joe.ie, just a few days after its video release. It is a nostalgic, folk-pop, ‘home-town’ song, but no town is all perfect and one must experience tribulations there too.
The debut video was self-produced with the help of a team of willing and helpful participants as actors, cameramen/women and generous proprietors. The videos for the next batch of material are the current focus, being produced with a similar approach.
This first batch of recordings was mixed and co-produced in New York by Oisin O’Maille, who has co-produced work with Jerry Harrison of Talking Heads.
All the while, newer material is being arranged for upcoming recordings, to provide a constant output of songs for the new and growing audience.
He was invited to perform at the ‘I Heart Bowie’ Tribute concert at the Opium Rooms Venue in Dublin on Jan 7th, 2017, where he enthralled a capacity audience of Bowie Fans with renditions of 2 of Bowie’s classic songs. Guests last year included Glen Hansard & Bell X 1.
