It was girls night out, both literally and figuratively when Noah Cyrus,along with special guest Maty Noyes brought “The Good Cry” Tour to the Baltimore Soundstage on Friday September 28th. The theme of the show was just two sister friends having one heck of a time, doing what they love to do on stage.
First up on the plate, was Ms. Maty Noyes. If you’re unfamiliar with Noyes, don’t feel alone, we were too before we arrived at the venue, but we would quickly get a crash course on the budding starlet. Just a normal southern girl hailing from Mississippi, Noyes describes herself as a free spirit, and that was 1000% detectable from the minute she stepped on stage. Her carefree attitude was totally reminiscent of a 90’s Courtney Love…her blonde hair even helped to round out that complete vibe. Her latest project is an EP entitled “Love Songs From A Lolita“, which is where about 90% of her setlist was lifted from.
At 21 years old, she’s very much an “in your face” artist and not afraid to back down from what it is she has to say, which was made rather obvious by her performance of the infectious tune “Say It To My Face“, and “Porn Star”
Midway through her set she turned up a bit with “Lava Lamps“, before her sister friend Noah Cyrus ran out on stage to the surprise of everyone in the crowd and assisted in singing the hook to the song…in between some friendly grinding on each other. All in all Maty just is your average girl who loves to have fun, but she happens to be one who has the ability to share her talents, and good times, with us on stage.
Fans started to get a bit antsy in anticipation for Ms. Cyrus, but they didn’t have to wait too long as she hit the stage in a ultra chill vibe, that helped match her signature relaxed look…a pair of track pants and a sports bra. She kicked off the show with the title track from her EP “Good Cry“, which is a rather melancholy song that peels back the fearless exterior of Cyrus, and gives a glimpse at the shamed, sick, loveless, hopeless, and overall just not okay side that we may not ordinarily see from her.
Just to hear her voice is to be wowed that she is only 18. So, with a sultry tone, a soprano range, an angelic face and the relatable vibe to all the millennials, Noah is a great addition to the music industry. Bringing a pop presence mixed with soulful musical accents, there is a lot to look forward to from this young lady.
Those same millennials showed up and showed out for this concert, as they pilled in the Soundstage and were packed tight against the guard rail, attempting to get as close as possible to the one that they all came to see.
Not to keep things at a “down in the dumps” pace, she switched up the #mood during the performance of “My Way”, a song that she’s featured on with the producer duo One Bit.
On tour in support of her latest EP entitled “Good Cry”, you could easily tell that this wasn’t her first time on tour, just by seeing how comfortable she is on stage. The way she commanded her band through each song was as of seasoned professional and then her sheer stage presence is the type to pull you in and make you feel what she’s doing, and noticing that she’s a born natural.
With any artist touring behind new music, we can only hope that they deliver a heaping portion of new material, and this is one thing Noah didn’t shy away from. With songs like “Topanga“, “Mad At You” and “Sadness” sprinkled throughout the set, she pretty much covered the whole entire EP, which is pretty impressive.
Towards the end of her set, she hopped off stage and into the audience, for what caused absolute pandemonium for her legion of fans, grabbing that quick selfie or snapchat video for bragging rights.
Yes, she has the wonderful blessing of being a Cyrus but she has created her own lane and she is heavily thriving in her career already. Every one of her songs have been hits with her already enormous fan base. There are thought provoking music videos and most of these are strongly in the millions when it comes to views. Noah has over 500 million music streams and has already graced many prominent stages, and based on her Good Cry Tour show, it was clear to see that her shows will only continue to evolve, and the stages that she plays will get bigger with each outting.
The tour continues on until October 24th, so if you haven’t purchased your ticket yet, find out where she’ll be playing, and make your way to that venue’s website and cop that…you won’t be disappointed.
