Episode 493 - feat. Noah Derksen & More New Releases
Folk Roots Radio... with Jan Hall
Noah Derksen is a Canadian-American singer-songwriter with a wonderfully soulful folk-roots Americana sound and some very strong songs. He joins us in the studio on Episode 493 of Folk Roots Radio for an in-depth conversation about his latest album “America, Dreaming”, and a few live songs. We also find time to include more of the new music we've received, and this time around we hear from Sussex, Ma Polaine's Great Decline, Hansan, Burnstick, The East Pointers, Ayla Brook & The Sound Men, Lynn Harrison and The John Byrne Band.
Interview - Noah Derksen chats about America, Dreaming plus three live songs
Folk Roots Radio... with Jan Hall
Noah Derksen is a Canadian singer-songwriter with a wonderfully soulful folk-roots Americana sound and some very strong songs. Also an American citizen, Noah Derksen's new album "America, Dreaming" - which was produced by Murray Pulver (The Bros. Landreth, Joey Landreth, Doc Walker, etc.) in Winnipeg, is a search for identity, reflecting on time spent living and travelling across the United States. "As an American-citizen growing up in Canada, I held an unrealistic depiction of the United States as a land of opportunity and freedom. In years spent living, touring, and working south of the border, I’ve discovered the practical limitations to that opportunity and freedom. America, Dreaming represents an observation of my home and native land south of the 49th parallel; an observation both externally, of how things change with time, and internally, on how I have had to shift my own perspective." Noah Derksen joined us in the studio to chat about the new album, and while he was with us played three songs from the new album live. For more information, visit https://www.noahderksen.com. Music: Noah Derksen "Hoping You Would Stay" (Live), "Lonely in America" (Live) and "What Kind of Love is That" (Live).

Influenced by the contrasting cultures of Canadian prairies and the west, Noah Derksen writes with the groundedness of harsh Manitoba winters mixed with the optimism of British Columbia’s coastline. Ever seeking motion and progression, Noah’s self-described “contemplative folk” has taken him across Canada and the United States.
