Energetic, attentive, and dynamic define Noah Simpson's trumpet playing. Joined by his band of Portland Natives, they strive to provide a fresh set of ears to Black American music. Cory Limuaco provides consistent, intricate grooves that compliment Milo Fultz’s grooving melodic bass lines. Charles Brown III guides the band harmonically creating a platform for Noah to lead the band with his contemporary approach to the trumpet..
