Tomorrow Noah Richardson will release a song that helped him dance through the pain of difficult times, and you get to hear "WHEREVER U GO" first.
His smooth and silky voice slips in your ear like a gentle breeze. It’s breathy but has a slow and emotional dying inside, yet still a powerful fullness to it. Sound like an insane grouping of adjectives? Yes, but this artist pulled all that off. The unexpected beat change pleasantly surprised me and kept my attention tight and left me waiting for more of the exceptional vocal display. I really became addicted to it. The gentle drop, and then steady build were sweet to the ear candy part of my brain.
Richardson says, "This track was super therapeutic for me. At the end of months of hardship and obstacles, I found solace in writing this song. Despite the challenges, despite the heartache, somehow we find a way to dance through the ashes… even though it’s all burning down around us."
What also made this song so unique was that it felt like two songs in one. The tempos and energy of half the song are unique, yet similar to itself. Think of cold pie vs warm pie, it just tastes different but still the same. The elements are still apples and crust but it just hits differently. That's what this song does.

The mid-song belting and falsettos make me feel like maybe hugs are needed because the selflessness of this artist rises above their own needs. It’s a sad song, that makes me want to ...dance. Nothing is better than bittersweet.
This song is a great listen and a well-constructed performance and I know you will enjoy it.

"WHEREVER U GO"
Take it, take it back Everything you lack And slip away (Hold on one more day) And take your, take your time Swallowing your pride Pretend you love the taste (Oh it’s such a shame) Oooo You don’t wanna move on You don’t wanna move on Don’t wanna move on But you’re probably better off… Wherever you go You will know That I will find you Wherever you go You will know That I will find you Take a, take a step Oh you’ve made such a mess Like you’re designed to And keep your head held high For all the tears you’ve cried Don’t let them blind you Oooo You don’t wanna move on You don’t wanna move on Don’t wanna move on But you’re probably better Wherever you go You will know That I will find you Wherever you go You will know That I will find you Take your take your (Take your take your time) Swallowing your (Swallowing you pride) Pretend you love (pretend you love the taste) Wherever you go You will know That I will find you Wherever you go You will know That I will find you
