At the budding age of just 15 years old, Noah Teal is proof that age is nothing but a number when it comes to the ability to shred a guitar. Noah, who first picked up a guitar at just five years old, has now been perfecting his craft for an entire decade.
He first began by picking through the riffs of Alex Lifeson of Rush, the solos of Eddie Van Halen, and many other rock players such as Slash of Guns N’ Roses, Angus Young from ACDC, Joe Walsh and Don Felder of the Eagles, and David Gilmour from Pink Floyd. At the time though, his most notable feat was multiple performances of Jimi Hendrix’s version of “The Star Spangled Banner” at school and many other places across Georgia.
Before starting his solo adventure, Noah played as lead guitar in the Jackson, Georgia-based band “The Olde Soles” around the age of 10 with friends from school and his sister. The Soles played ‘70s and ‘80s classic rock hits such as “Back In Black,” “Hotel California” and “Sweet Child O’ Mine” to name a few. But something just wasn’t clicking for him. Then it happened in May of 2018 at Atlanta’s Fox Theatre; guitar god and Noah’s soon-to-be idol came to town - none other than Joe Bonamassa…
In November of 2019, Noah Teal would hit the stage for the first time along with a backing band for nearly an hour's worth of blues and blues-rock, cementing the beginning of Noah’s only plan in life. Noah, along with his backing band The Express, now has a multitude of highly successful
shows in the Southeast under his belt, including most recently opening for award-winning and national touring blues guitarist & singer, Samantha Fish.
Among his most notable accomplishments, Noah is now a featured artist of the Gibson Authorized Guitar Builder Banker Custom Guitars out of North Georgia, in which he is in good company alongside such artists as Brent Hinds of Mastodon, Blackberry Smoke’s Charlie Starr, Benji Shanks and Paul Jackson, and Coy Bowles of The Zac Brown Band, the latter of which is co-writing and producing Noah’s debut record set to be released fall of 2021.
There’s no doubt that the future of this 15-year-old guitar slinger from Jackson Lake, Georgia is a bright one. With the help and generosity of such people like Norman’s Rare Guitars featuring him in a video, Songbirds Guitar Museum and Foundation bringing him up to play the museum’s most expensive and prized instruments, sponsorship by Banker Custom Guitars, Grammy Award-winning Coy Bowles’ co-writing and producing guidance on the first record, and the support of many, many others, there is a high probability you will be hearing the name Teal again.
