Released in December 2020, Noah Malcolm's debut, self-produced EP On Time is a 4-track manifesto on the creative process, exploring themes like patience, trust, doubt and determination.
Recorded in Toronto just months prior to the onset of COVID-19, this project would see Malcolm re-learning all the life lessons written into these songs. The new artist credits the extra time and perspective for fortifying his debut body of work with new arrangements and even a new song written and recorded entirely during lockdown.
In On Time, Malcolm’s humour and vulnerability are carried by a guitar-pop sound with open tunings and lyrical wit reminiscent of a young Joni; a significant influence for the PEI native. With moments of rock, folk and all the tenderness in between, this concept record is a taste-test for what’s to come from this emerging Maritime artist.
'...Malcolm's voice is the perfect fit for the folkpop genre; casual on the surface, backed by a certain melodic mastery' - The East Magazine
