Noah Young and his band premiere the music video for “Splinter”

Ahead of a sophomore album slated for a March release, Noah Young is premiering a music video for his new song “Splinter,” shot by OffBeat’s Noe Cugny.

The Naughty Professor bassist and his jazz style shine through in “Splinter,” which features all his funky bass abilities. Young found inspiration for this hit from Avishai Cohen, an Israeli jazz double bassist, composer, singer and arranger. “Splinter” was the first song that Young wrote for his upcoming record.

Young wanted to use the music video to capture the communication and interaction between his band members. “The trumpet solo that Steve Lands takes on this song is a perfect example of that,” Young said. Steve Lands is the newest member of the band and Young found it fitting to have him be featured on his first single from the album.

Young will be opening for The Funky Knuckles at The Howlin Wolf on Tuesday, February 5. The Funky Knuckles are a Fusion band out of Dallas that are signed to Snarky Puppy’s record label, Ground Up. Tickets available here. On March 22, Noah will throw his album release party at One Eyed Jacks. Khris Royal and Dark Matter will also be performing that night.

Naughty Professor will be performing their annual Krewe Du Vieux after show at One Eyed Jacks on Saturday, February 16. Tickets available here.

“Splinter” can be found on all major streaming platforms here.
