A Heart-to-Heart with Indie Artist Noam Peri: Music, Inspiration, and Living the Dream in LA

Noam Peri

Nestled in a cozy corner of a bustling Los Angeles café, I had the pleasure of sitting down with the vibrant and insightful Noam Peri. As an indie artist known for her unique blend of ’70s rock, pop, and electronic vibes, Noam’s music is as enigmatic as her own journey to the heart of the music industry.

Q: Noam, you’ve had quite the journey to Los Angeles. Can you share a bit about where you come from and what brought you to the city of stars?

“I moved to Los Angeles two years ago to pursue my dreams and goals. I relocated by myself for a fresh start and enrolled in the Musicians Institute College in Hollywood. There, I met my music partner, Lukas, and made many new friends who were also musicians.”

Q: Your latest single, ‘Darling, I Would,’ is deeply personal. What’s the story behind it?

“Darling, I Would” is my latest single, and it’s a song about a heartbreak. I wrote it to express my feelings and find healing after falling for someone that I knew I could never be with. The song features dirty guitars that convey the heartbreak, while also having a classic songwriting vibe that exudes warmth and desire. We recorded the song in our school studio in Los Angeles, with the help of my friends and former band members. It was mixed and produced in Sweden.

Q: What drove you to become a musician?

Music provides ample opportunities to express oneself. There were times in my life when I felt misunderstood, and during those moments, I turned to music and wrote songs to escape that feeling. Music gave me a fresh start and allowed me to be myself again.

Q: How would you describe the unique sound of your music?

My music blends 70s rock with pop and electronic elements, creating a fresh mix of old and new, rough and polished sounds, with a hint of nostalgia and vintage vibes.

Q: In your creative process, who do you find yourself writing for—yourself or your fans?

I think that I create for both. I started writing songs because I felt that I couldn’t find something that described exactly how I felt. Writing my songs made me understand that others may feel the same way. I hope to make people feel more understood and less alone.

Q: What’s the best piece of advice you’ve received from another musician?

The best advice I ever received from another musician was from my first EP producer, Hod. He told me that many people wait for the right time or perfect opportunity, expecting everything to be 100% perfect. Hod advised me not to chase perfection and to avoid waiting for the perfect moment. He encouraged me to go out there and take action because nothing will ever feel perfect anyway.

Q: Who would you say is your main inspiration in music?

My main inspiration is Debbie Harry from Blondie. I wrote a song dedicated to her, named “Debbie”. I got a lot of inspiration from the band, and I see them as my big musical influence. She is the one who opened the door to rock female artists like me.

Q: What does your songwriting process usually look like?

It depends. Sometimes, a song comes fast and flows easily onto paper. Other times, it can take several days. Usually, I think about what I want to write and write little notes about how I feel or the story I want to tell. From that, I build a song.

I love seeing the stars at the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles and writing there. It gives me so much inspiration. But honestly, I can find myself writing anywhere. You never know when a new song will hit.

Q: Have you ever made mistakes during a performance? How do you handle them?

I have made mistakes while performing, but the key is to ignore them and keep going. Sometimes, I may need to catch up on words or play the wrong notes, but remaining calm and composed is the key. If you keep your cool, nobody will notice the mistake.
