WE WOULD LOVE YOU TO GET INVOLVED
The Noisy Brain are reaching out to musicians who dare to create music from the writings of others, and those artists who believe in the importance of mental & emotional health.
The Noisy Brain encourage those who struggle to write about their experiences, then with the talent of collaborative artists all around the world we turn those words that harm us if they stay inside our heads, into songs to inspire others to share their stories.
It is a responsible and honest source of stories, lyrics and real experiences. At one point or another, every songwriter or musician has experienced a mental block - faltering moments of being unable to create and write. Elsewhere, there are others with creative surges, tapping richly into their wellsprings of hope, pain, joy and experience writing beautifully meaningful, original and heartfelt poetry or writings. The Noisy Brain brings together all parties in rewarding collaborations.
Music makers gain FREE access to a growing library of potential lyrics submitted by those dealing with their issues. Musicians will benefit from gigs and song earnings, access mental wellness content, and be supported and uplifted by The Noisy Brain community.
Search through our community app and the growing library of submitted writings, collaborate with our contributors, share your songs.

It can help relieve anxiety and stress, calms breathing, improves mood and helps people with their overall well-being. When collaborating on The Noisy Brain project you have the opportunity to uplift our contributors through your songs. Look through our bank of writings and read through background stories by our contributors. Refer to the lyrics for your own song making process, as many as you need. We only ask that you credit us and share your finished songs.
Upload your songs for the community to share likes and comments. Every month we create a playlist of songs to be uploaded online via The Noisy Brain. Who knows who might hear your song next? We also work directly with selected artists to help finalise and finish popular songs on the platform at the recording studio for free. Finally, we organise gigs and invite selected musicians to perform. They will perform their Noisy Brain songs amongst their own hits.
For the benefit of our contributors, we want to get their lyrics made into finished songs. Where possible, please include the original sentiment of the writing during your musical endeavours. To help enable this, finished songs should aim to have at least a few lines of the original writings. This helps prove that someone who’s never been involved with music could help write a song. When creating in this way, you show empathy to the originator and will inspire others to use their own writings in a creative and fulfilling way.

These included R.E.M's Everybody Hurts, Tracy Chapman's Baby Can I Hold You?, and Every Breath You take by Sting. She later got 'Everybody Hurts' tattooed on the back of her neck as a tribute to her early stages as a guitarist.

Her debut album 'Pleasure From Pain contains credit to top class producers such as Manchester's ATilly and Amsterdam's FreekVanWorkum: Grammy Nomintated,5x Multi-Platinum Producer who has worked with the likes of Kehlani, 2 Chainz and Wstrn. Her track Mary J ft CGH impressed Abbey Road Engineers and Sam Inglis (Editor of SOS Magazine) and was selected to be critiqued at Abbey Road’s 90th Anniversary Festival.
Through her debut album Tamara addresses issues such as mental health, love and loss as well as more pop style collaborations. Mental health has always been something Tamara has openly spoken about. This is specifically shown through her debut track ‘Little Me’ where she discusses her anxiety and depression from early childhood.
A few words on The Noisy Brain
Teaming up with The Noisy Brain is something I was eager to do. It felt as though there were no platforms to turn to in times of struggle or uncertainty but the rise in grassroot mental health awareness over the last few years has meant that there has been an increase in solidarity for people like us.. and we’re not actually as rare and weird as we may think!
'RUN&HIDE' - was created in collaboration with The Noisy Brain, it was inspired from a contribution written by - STU.
The Noisy Brain are proud to be introducing you all to Massachusetts Emcee - JFliz.
JFliz has been a consistant supporter of The Noisy Brain project right from the begining.
JFliz has been writing, recording music and performing on stage since the age of 8. Remaining incredibly creative, original and versatile - you can hear him flow to smooth jazz inspired beats, hard hitting boom bap to rock n roll sampled bangers.
JFliz dropped his debut album in 2012 and consistently released content until 2018. With the birth of his first son, he stepped away from music to focus on family. In March of 2020 he began to craft his return project, [Grown](https://open.spotify.com/album/3h7XOvheDFmmmZVtulnTQA?si=Uz3INnruQjKKt_vAX59fcA). Released in November of 2020, it was considered his breakthrough album. Completely constructed by Fliz himself from the beats, rhymes and production, it was acclaimed by DJs, Podcasts and Blogs such as UGHH Blog & Insomniac Magazine. Since then, we’ve seen him release 3 singles in 2021 and been told there is A LOT of music coming this year. It appears Fliz intends to make up for lost time and has also teamed up with some formidable artists to accompany his return to the scene.
Devil At The Pulpit - Release Date 5/4/21
The album has NOTHING to do with religion. The concept/message within the name is people are often fighting with inner demons and living with “bad/negative thoughts, depression, self-loathing” and often looking for salvation and change.
"As everyone now knows after Grown, I personally struggle with all these things. The vibe of some songs have a darker vibe but on flip side has lighter, more inspirational songs like the lead single entitled “Better Way” which is on the positive side of things." - JFliz
JFliz, The Noisy Brain team thank you for your continued support and wish you huge success with everything infront of you.
Monopoly Loser is a singer and songwriter based in Belgium with Eastern European roots. His real name is Erik and he creates music around lyrics that are inspired by his experience and true events. The artist started creating music after a burnout at work and has been feeling his best ever since.
Monopoly Loser's current preferred genre is melancholic pop.
Monopoly Loser promised himself that he will be more productive in 2021 and he's decided to release a new song every month. He has already released 'Leave no Trace' and 'While you’re Away' already, released his piano ballad SCITD
And in collaboration with Maks Divine and The Noisy Brain recently released the fantastic song - 'NOTHING' - inspired from a contribution written by - NickK.
"I started therapy when I had burnout and completely lost sleep. I was going crazy unable to sleep, think, exist. Working with my therapist I uncovered that I miss things that made me really happy, especially when I was in school. Those things are music, writing stories, journaling. So I started doing that and felt better almost instantly. of course, there is always a danger zone in one's mental health and the cure is a combination of multiple things, but The Noisy Brain proposes something that would play a huge role in one's wellbeing. I love that the NB gives an opportunity to become creative to people that, maybe, never thought they would be creative in such an area." - Monopoly Loser
'NOTHING' - was created in collaboration with Maks Divine and The Noisy Brain, it was inspired from a contribution written by - NickK.
Born in New Zealand to free-spirited hippie parents and having spent her early 20s living in Brazil, Spain and London, Maia May is the intensely personal, soulful voice our unstable, ugly world needs. Combining the artistic rebelliousness of her youth with her inimitable voice, everything Maia May touches exudes spirituality, everything she sings enlightening. Living life as an extended hobby, Maia May’s songs are a personal diary of a young woman’s fragility, passions and courage to protect her peace.
In June 2020, Maia took on the call to help bring The Noisy Brain to life. She browsed our bank of writings and it was great to hear that some words actually stood out to her. Her music-making process is very much driven by words and emotions, and so Maia picked "Broken Men", a piece written by Stu, our co-founder. His writing was a dedication, and acknowledgment that throughout life we each need someone's support. It’s about the unquestioning and unreserved love from another that pulls you through the tough times.
Maia took the writings and transformed them into lyrics with a simple guitar melody. She worked with the Noisy Brain on a few iterations to really bring the original writings to life, in her way. And we are happy to report, that Stu is very much pleased with the result.
"Working with The Noisy Brain was a rewarding experience. To be able to create someone's most personal thoughts into a song that will be therapeutic for their healing is an honour in itself" - Maia May
