Toronto-based pop singer-songwriter and producer Noah Ackah just recently released a brand new music video for his latest single, “Freeze.” The beautifully shot visuals portray a day in Noah Ackah’s life, from the moment he wakes up until the very end of that same day’s night. A wonderful glimpse into the artist’s life, this music video and the original concept behind it are set to make viewers feel like they know the artist better after watching it. We’ve had a chance to interview him about his new release and music video, creative process, as well as the influence he had from his parents in relation to music.
Hello Noah, thank you for taking the time to answer a few questions.
Congratulations on the release of your latest single “Freeze!” The song is about moving on and moving forward! What was the most difficult thing you had to let go of in your life? How do you come to the realization that it’s time to leave things behind?
Growth is super important in my life and everyones as well. Things need to change in order to adjust for the time your situations, and things need to be dropped and added. I and everyone hold onto things no need for the sake of comfortability.
What is special about “Freeze?” How is it different from your other releases? How is it the same?
I feel confident with this one. It’s the first where I feel I’ve put out something I wanted out there to represent me.
You like to be authentic and true with your creations, what led you to write “Freeze?” How much of it is based on real life experiences?
It’s definitely based on real life experiences. Everyone needs that talk and needs to be heard. It’s super important.
We’re excited for the release of the “Freeze” music video! When is it coming out?
Can you give us a little hint or a teaser of the plot?
It’s very visual. Me and my partner were experimenting with ideas and we really liked the turn out. It’s my fav video so far.
You grew up with musicians and music has always been a part of your life! How have your parents influenced your music choices? And do you go to them for advice? Are they the first ones you share your new music with? Have they always supported you in your decision of becoming a musician?
They taught me everything I know and still teach me to this day. I go to my mom for advice everyday and she helps me with everything you here.
How is your creative process? Do you prefer working alone or would you like to
brainstorm with other professionals? Name us a few artists you would like to
It always starts with myself. I produce everything fully and usually I write the song. The process is always messy, creativity in general is just like that. But I enjoy help and welcome it to people who are better than me in certain fields. That’s how you take things to the next level.
What are your biggest plans for the future? Should we expect any more singles to be
released soon? An album perhaps?
Just you wait and see.
