A professional actor since grade school, Noah Schnacky began winning fans for his good-natured, tuneful country-pop on social media as a teenager in the mid-2010s. His streaming breakthrough, “Hello Beautiful,” was released in 2018.
Born in Minneapolis and raised in Orlando and Los Angeles, Noah James Schnacky became part of the entertainment industry as early as age eight, eventually piecing together work in print, theater, radio, television, and film. He began a seven-year stint as host of the Radio Disney talk show Kids Concerns when he was ten and began writing and recording songs at 12. Around that time, he earned screen credits included a non-speaking role in the TV movie Ace Ventura: Pet Detective Jr. and voice-over work in the National Lampoon movie Robodoc, both released in 2009. Those were followed by guests on several TV series, including How I Met Your Mother. In 2013, he joined the cast of the reality made-for-mobile series HitStreak, which followed the lives of four teenaged singers in Miami. Schnacky put out his first original song, “Miami to LA,” in 2014.
As a musician, he soon found a following online with a series of shared cover songs while studying with a vocal coach (Mark Goff, whose resumé includes the Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, Creed, and more) and making trips to Nashville periodically to record. He also continued to audition for acting roles, winning a lead in the 2015 family film Turtle Tale and becoming a regular on the series In Sanity, Florida in 2017. In January 2018, the country singer released the song “Hello Beautiful,” and it garnered over ten million streams by mid-year. He followed it with “Maybe I Will” before signing with Big Machine Records. His label debut, “I’ll Be the One,” arrived in mid-2019. (Artist Biography by Marcy Donelson – All Music)
