About Noah Cyrus
Before following in the footsteps of dad Billy Ray, sisters Miley and Brandi, and brother Trace by becoming a musician, American singer/songwriter Noah Cyrus started acting when she was three years old. Roles on TV shows such as Doc and Hannah Montana, and films including Mostly Ghostly, led to Cyrus providing the voice of Ponyo in the English-language version of Hayao Miyazaki's 2008 anime film of the same name and singing the film's theme song with Frankie Jonas. Eventually, Cyrus turned her love of harmonizing with her dad into a full-fledged singing career, issuing her debut effort, Good Cry, in 2018.
After signing a deal with Barry Weiss' Records label, she released her debut single, "Make Me (Cry)," in November 2016. The track was a collaboration with U.K. singer/producer Labrinth and reached the Top 50 of the Billboard Hot 100. Cyrus spent all of 2017 and a good portion of 2018 releasing singles in advance of her debut long-player, NC-17. Instead of the album, however, her first EP arrived that September; Good Cry featured the singles "Mad at You" with Gallant and "Punches" with LP. The EP peaked at number 13 on the Heatseekers Albums chart in October. The single "July" appeared, fittingly, in July of the following year; that November, Cyrus released a duet version of the song with soul singer/songwriter Leon Bridges, which charted on the Billboard Hot 100 early in 2020 and was certified platinum in multiple markets. Months later, she issued her second EP, The End of Everything. Featuring an appearance by Ant Clemons, the EP fell somewhere between Billie Eilish and Kacey Musgraves, a pop-oriented set with country and gospel touches. Upon release, it marked her first appearance on the Billboard 200. ~ Heather Phares
