The Hollywood Times had the opportunity to catch up with Noah Garner. For a young man of 23 years, he sure had some great words of wisdom about the road to becoming a hit maker in Nashville and especially about telling the truth in the songs that he writes.
You will truly enjoy the music and lyrics to this newest singe Spring Break Town, great song to be playing heading down to the beach or wherever you go to get away and have some fun in the sun.
Here is our conversation:
“Working on Spring Break Town was a breath of fresh air as a creator. Noah and I set out to produce a full and lasting experience,” reflected producer- Michael Cruz. “From the dirt roads to the polished downtown lights, Spring Break Town is destined to get you up and dancing!”
“I wrote this song because I have lived and heard the stories of many people that had experienced the excitement of Spring Break. I lived in Panama City Beach for ten years, and I was able to add my own personal story to it,” shared Noah Garner. “I came up with the idea when I was talking to my mom and best friend about Panama City and said the words “it’s nothing but a spring break town” and I ran with the idea. It is the first song that my good buddy, Lenny Pey, and I worked on together.”
Spring Break Town EP Track List:
- Gotta Get To You – Noah Garner
- Spring Break Town – Noah Garner and Lenny Pey
- Cover Up Tattoo – Noah Garner
- Gonna Drink Again – Noah Garner
“… Memory in a spring break town
Her and me burning them back roads down
We went our separate ways
But I’m still holding out for that girl
In that spring break town
We all got someone we just can’t shake
No matter how hard we try to erase
Or replace or drown out those feelings we have
For someone that we know just ain’t coming back
I try to stay away from that Emerald Coast,
But I can still taste her kiss in my cigarette smoke
And She’s gone in love with someone else
That means that all that I have left …”
The idea behind Spring Break Town is the classic story of a hot, fast burning romance that happens over a once in a lifetime summer or Spring Break. The hope is listeners will take away that good feeling you get when you think about that wild spring break you had that one time, in that special place, with that special someone.
