'An artist who knows exactly what he wants to say' - Turtle Tempo
Currently based out of Birmingham and playing with new band The Siskins, Jericho produces music out of a small home studio. Experimentation with recording techniques and production were the main focus of the last year, it saw the releases of new single 'Over' and EP 'Get It by the Feel'. As of 2020 Jericho has released two new singles from his upcoming debut album 'Siskin Dreams'. More tracks are to be released prior to the full album launch, set for mid to late 2020.
'Jericho Noguera Exhales Smooth Retro Jazz' - Odd Nugget on 'Future Project'
Starting life as a solo artist, Jericho played small venues up and down the UK from as young as sixteen. Around the same age he also began collaborating on and off with friends and local musicians, some of whom would later turn out to be band mates in the present day. This wouldn't take place until their early twenties, as a separation brought on by their university studies would lead each of them to persue their own musical projects. Jericho collaborated on a duo project called Talk in partnership with friend Jack Baxter, who would later go on to become electronic dance producer Daze Prism. Meanwhile Fabio Thomas (Bassist), and Ben Lyth (Drummer) would join forces in their own band Mysteron, experimenting with an array of synth processors mixed with guitar, bass, and live drums. Mysteron continued following their graduation, while Jericho moved to Bristol and began producing more intimate solo works. His debut EP 'Black Lake' (2018) was released during this time, 'nostalgic, organic, and charmingly lo-fi' were among it's praises, alongside comparisons to Elliot Smiths 'Roman Candle' era and other cult artists.
Necessity would eventually bring Jericho to Birmingham, the presence of both Ben and Fabio in the city was a major draw, and a growing catalogue of songs designed for a full band was in desperate need of collaborators. Jericho moved in with Fabio and rehearsals as a trio began. They embarked on a short tour of the UK to test the waters, and released their first new track 'Future Project'. This marked the end of Jericho's time as a solo artist and signalled his transition into working with the band. Since then the band has seen the addition of Sam Pugh (Guitar & Keys), and the donning of the new backing trio's official title 'The Siskins'.
