You could say Jeremy Noble has been influenced by music his entire life. It all started as a young child when his father took him backstage at a Hank Williams Jr. concert in Huntsville. It was his first concert. He was just five years old. According to Noble, Hank Jr. spotted him on the side of the stage, picked him up, and carried him center stage.

“He asked me if I wanted to sing,” Noble told local podcaster Benji Garland on Wednesday. “I told him yes and we sang If You Don’t Like Hank Williams You Can Kiss My Ass.”

It’s an auspicious beginning that resonates even today. One look at Noble’s long beard, dark, well-worn wide-brimmed hat, and aviators and you get a sense he’s channeling performers like Bocephus, Waylon Jennings, and Willie Nelson.

A southern rocker with a gritty voice

That first night under the lights led Noble to sing in both his middle school and high school choir. He was good. So good, that he received two vocal college scholarships. Post high school, he began to work behind the scenes for touring cover bands. That experience eventually led him to become the touring manager of the band, Bang Bang Bang.

In 2013, he decided to try his hand at performing front-of-house with his first band, Roscoe. In early 2015, he decided to drop the band name and perform under his own name. In addition to playing solo, he’s performed with acts like Blackberry Smoke, Sara Evans, Maren Morris, and Kip Moore.

He’s a southern rocker with a gritty voice and forceful delivery. On stage, he’s been known to to cover songs like The Black Crowes’ Jealous Again and Lynryd Skynyrd’s Freebird.

It also won’t be his first rodeo in Lynchburg either. He performed at Lynchburg Harley Davidson’s Bike Night on the Square last year.

Noble will play the Barbecue Caboose on the historic Lynchburg Square on June 2 and then return on Friday, June 23 for Frontier Days. His June 23 performance will be with a full band and it begins at 6 p.m.

Local podcaster Benji Garland hosted Noble on his podcast The Fuzzey Duck Show on Wednesday night. You can listen to the entire episode by clicking here. If you want to learn more about Noble in advance of his Lynchburg performances in June visit his website. •
