Remembering Noah Brown

Back in 2021 former Brand and Communications Manager Jack Lintorn met with friend of the studios, budding sound engineer and Beatles aficionado Noah Brown, who tragically lost his battle with cancer last Summer.

"Last March, I had the honour of taking Noah Brown, his dad, Steve, and his friends Frazer and Mikey for a tour around the studios. During my time working at Abbey Road, I was privileged to show many people around the hallowed space, however, this was definitely one of the more poignant mornings.

Noah’s enthusiasm, passion and kindness shone from the moment I met him that morning. As we began walking around Studio Two, he revealed his deep affection for the Beatles, explaining recording techniques and session details which I had never heard before. His deep knowledge of recording and mixing was incredibly impressive - fascinated by the outboard gear and mixing consoles on display as we walked around each studio.

My thoughts go out to Noah’s friends and family, it was a true honour to meet him and his legacy will continue with the work that you are doing."

Noah's father Stephen added:

"A year ago today, your former colleague Jack Lintorn very kindly gave my son Noah, along with myself and his friends Frazer and Mikey, a tour of Abbey Road. It was a magical day and probably the most memorable day of Noah’s life, particularly with the Beatles being his favourite band.

Tragically, Noah died of bowel cancer last summer. He was just 19 years old. We are beyond heartbroken and miss him so much.

I wanted you to know how much your kindness and time that day meant to us. We have the most spectacular photos of our visit which have become even more treasured since Noah died.

Noah’s links to music were so strong for someone so young. He graduated from Leeds City College with distinction in Music Technology and won a prized place at LIPA - Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts, to begin a 3 year BA course in Sound Technology. Sadly his illness prevented him from taking up his place, which was a crushing blow to him.

Despite this, Noah built a fabulous home studio and produced and engineered some local artists, playing guitar on many during the last few months of his life. He also played live with some bands, showing enormous potential. He was so happy doing this and it was his dream to one day own and run his own commercial recording studio. He so wanted to be part of the music industry, but we believe he still achieved that with the legacy of the work he produced. The industry has very definitely lost one of its own.

Noah bequeathed much of the studio equipment to all his college friends who supported him magnificently through his illness, and now Frazer & Mikey are helping set his studio up again so that we can let local people come and use it free of charge, in his memory.

My wife Julie and I are now volunteering for Teenage Cancer Trust to raise awareness of their vital work and also to fundraise for them in Noah’s memory. They are an extraordinary charity who were incredibly supportive of Noah and all our family during his illness."
