Noah James Hittner

Noah James Hittner’s third solo album, willing, was written, performed, recorded, mixed, and produced entirely by Hittner in his tiny basement home-studio on the blue-collar east side of Madison, WI. Using blues, folk, hip-hop, R&B, and electronica, this 12-song multi-genre journey touches on social justice, loss, consciousness, parenthood, and, of course, love, to successfully paint a sonic canvas which not only emotes, but grooves. The album’s lead-off video-single, “A White Man’s Blues,” explores the irony that occurs when the hate we receive becomes the hate we spread, and how we are all now living this irony together. willing is available on all major streaming and download platforms.

Hittner, of Local 166 (Madison, WI), is a musician, author, and entrepreneur whose music blends the singer-songwriter, acoustic, rock, urban, and electronic styles into what he calls an Acoustic-Tronic genre.
