Noah O
Noah O
Birthed to Filipino and Sicilian parents, Noah was born and raised in San Francisco, California. He lived in San Francisco until he was in seventh grade, when his family moved to the West End in hopes for a new beginning. "Growing up, we had it good at first," Noah recalls, "but it was the 1980's. Drugs affected our lives and tore apart our family. Eventually, I was sent to live in Virginia so we could start over." Instead of letting the troubles of his childhood hinder him, Noah chose to channel his energy into more productive activities, such as writing poetry and reading.

Noah began writing rhymes at the age of fourteen, but it was not until the age of seventeen that he began recording. He credits veteran hip-hop recording artists such as Tupac Shakur, Nas, Jay-Z, Eightball and MJG as his lyrical influences, but he also expresses his appreciation for all of hip-hop. "Basically the whole culture of Hip Hop is the soundtrack for my life, these artists are just a few who come to mind."

Not content with being only an artist Noah helped found his own company
Charged Up Entertainment LLC and operated a full service recording
studio in Richmond, VA as well as putting together a monthly Hip-Hop
networking event that features MC & Producer battles and performances
from local artists titled "The Rebirth"
Aware of the void in community services Charged Up Ent. along with
sponsors The City of Richmond, Fox television and Clear Channel
broadcasting established a successful community event entitled VyAy
(Virginia Youth are Yearning) Day which aims to curb youth violence,
drug use, and gang activity through the use of performing arts. With an
ear for crafting music everyone can relate to Noah O is poised to carve
his name into history.
