Noah Guthrie
Noah rose to fame covering chart-topping hits on YouTube. He received national attention with his blues-filled version of LMFAO’s “Sexy and I Know It,” which to date has received over 26-million views, with his YouTube channel, only1noah, racking up over 78 million total views.

Noah released his first independent, original album, Among The Wildest Things, in 2013. His new album, The Valley, has established him as an artist on the rise in the world of Americana/Country music. His songwriting and soulful vocal delivery are truly unique.

His growing presence on YouTube eventually led to his being cast as Roderick Meeks, a pivotal character on FOX’s hit TV show Glee, on it’s sixth and final season. Noah was featured in several songs on the popular, music oriented TV show.

After the show ended, Noah dove head first back into songwriting and touring. His second original album, The Valley, solidifies Noah as one of the freshest new voices in Americana music. He is often compared to artists, such as, Ray Lamontagne and Jason Isbell. The Valley is getting major play on streaming services, such as Spotify, Pandora and Apple Music. Noah currently has over 600,000 monthly listeners on Spotify alone.

Most recently, Noah was a semi-finalist on America’s Got Talent Season 13.

Priddy Music Academy
Since 2000, Priddy Music Academy in Millersville, Maryland, has been more than just any ordinary music school. They have taken students beyond fundamentals, while gaining wisdom from working with efficient and attentive teachers that encourage confidence in being part of a musical community. They have gone from “The Place for Guitar” to “The Place for Bands,” and now, “The Place for Guitar, Bass, Piano, and Voice.” They have the finest instructors Maryland has to offer, many of whom are household names.​

Mac + Blue

Music 4 More fundraising to purchase new instruments for Anne Arundel County Schools

For the past ten years Music 4 More has been feeding refurbished instruments into Anne Arundel County Schools and the surrounding areas.

Over the past year we have been working very closely with the Anne Arundel County Schools to collect wish lists from over 50 teachers throughout the county and many of the instruments they need are not common donations that come into our organization. To date our wish-lists contain over $600,000 worth of new instruments that are needed! More instruments for these programs = more kids in their programs. This summer we are reaching out to local businesses and individuals to ask for your help in our mission to kick off the 2018-2019 school year with a large donation of new instruments in addition to our refurbished instruments into Anne Arundel County Public Schools.

We are looking for 50 businesses to donate a minimum of $1000.00 each help us reach our goal of donating 200+ instruments this fall. That is 200 more students that will be able to participate in a music program at their school thanks to your donation!

$1000 = repairing 5-10 used instruments or 1-5 new instruments!

Thank you to the companies that have already donated to our campaign!

Charter Title  ($5000+)

Problem Solved. Concierge Errand Service ($1000.00)

More 4 More chosen as non-profit partner for TFDIFest – September 7-8, 2018 – Evanston, IL

What is TFDI Fest?  What the heck is TFDI??

Just in case you don’t know the background story…

TFDI is a ‘supergroup’ of sorts.  Three singer songwriters with vastly different musical backgrounds and each with their own individual solo careers who came together to form something that is truly larger and more powerful than the sum of their parts.

Tony Lucca, Jay Nash and Matt Duke sound as if their voices were destined to find each other when they sing.

What does TFDI stand for, you say?  Never mind that now…you’ll figure that out soon enough.

For TFDI Fest the lineup of incredible musicians scheduled to perform have all been hand selected by Matt, Tony and Jay.  They are heroes, collaborators, friends and tour mates.  These artists were selected not only for their incredible individual talent, but also for the magic, alchemy and endless possibilities that exist when they are gathered together in the same room.

Music 4 More is excited to be partnering with this first time festival. We will be raffling off an item from the TFDI band as well as a guitar signed by all of the artists participating in the event. More info on how to purchase the raffle tickets will be posted closer to the event.

TFDI_Promo-7Tickets are now available for purchase at TFDIFest.com

As IMPACT makers, we believe in the healing power of music and want to inspire and encourage disadvantaged youth living in the third world. 100% of ALL funds will be used to hire a music teacher, purchase instruments and build out a recording studio.

Now I Play Along TooNow I Play Along Too (NIPAT) is a 501c3 not for profit charity that focuses on improving the lives of disadvantaged kids through the gift of music. NIPAT provides music instruments and lessons to those who otherwise could not afford them in the DC area as well as in Florida, Haiti, Ethiopia, Kenya, and other areas.
Each year NIPAT and other musicians come together to host a summer music camp at the Source of Light Orphanage in Port Au Prince, Haiti, where they have an ongoing music program for approximately 100+ kids.
