Currently leading the vocals behind project XNDR Q and one of four members of the formidable STAYOUTLATE collective, Charlie Noiir has been recording and releasing music with fellow representatives Scotty IV, Tremayne and YoungWolf, most recently with their 2021 debut album the show stopping and aptly named Fabergé.
Riding on the back of the immense waves created by this momentous drop, Charlie Noiir shows fans how he means to go on; with the unguarded and intimate ‘Beside Me’.
With a soft and soulful entrance, ‘Beside Me’ eases the listener into Noiirs vulnerability. Directly speaking, Noiir begins with a heartfelt confession “I just really need to say what’s on my mind for once” setting the tone for what is to come.
Noiir effortlessly draws you into the world of his creation, immersing and exposing you to the pure emotion encased at its core. Enabling you to empathise and therefore connect with his art on an entirely new level.
With traditional Rhythm and Blues elements, accented by the tender subject matter, ‘Beside Me’ is a homage to the classic 90’s R&B era and a subtle nod to the greats, all whilst radiating Noiirs unique sound and style.
From energetic and soulful, upbeat party anthems to slow jams, Noiir is raw and untamed, unfiltered and poignant. With an insatiable creativity running through his veins he channels his emotions with the ingenuity and sophistication of a true artist, earning him his coveted reputation within the Toronto music scene and beyond.
“BESIDE ME, NOT A LOVE SONG BUT A WAR CRY FOR LOVE. THE UPS AND DOWNS, THE LONGING, THE HURT, THE REBOUND, THE MOMENTS AND INEVITABLY, THE REALISATION. THE EBBS AND FLOWS OF A RELATIONSHIP, LIKE THE ROCKING OF AN UNSETTLED SEA.
FIGHTING FOR STABILITY AND YEARNING FOR UNDERSTANDING. BESIDE ME TOUCHES ON EMOTIONS FELT IN THE HEAT OF A TURBULENT RELATIONSHIP.” – Charlie Noiir
