Mia Morris and Noel Maurice


For us at indieRepublik it was never really a question. At some point, after finding and featuring hundreds if not thousands of artists, we were destined to set up our own label to push the artists we love most from all those we come into contact with.
And with that said, say hallo to our newest signing (one taken from our own ranks)…


Noel Maurice

Noel Maurice is a UK-born, Berlin-based indie/blues/americana singer and songwriter. Arriving in East Berlin in 1991 his earlier music (and books) documented what it was like to live in this underground scene at this turbulent time.

After taking a break from music for a year – that turned into 15 years – during which he started indie.berlin and (still) works as chief editor of indierepublik, Noel is now working on fresh material with a release planned for this year.

Interview with Noel Maurice

We talk to Noel Maurice about what drives him, where he came from and what brought him here.

Who is Noel Maurice?

Born in the UK, a childhood in South Africa, finding a sense of home in East Berlin: a storyteller, musician, poet, performer and inveterate blogger, Noel bowed out to bring up his two children (and establish indie.berlin and indierepublik.com) while slowly working on new material.

who we are. what we think. why you should join us.

“This is your life. Do what you love, and do it often. If you don’t like your job, quit. If you don’t have enough time, stop watching TV. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop; they will be waiting for you when you start doing things you love. Stop over analyzing, life is simple. All emotions are beautiful. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Open your mind, arms, and heart to new things and people, we are united in our differences. Ask the next person you see what their passion is, and share your inspiring dream with them. Travel often; getting lost will help you find yourself. Some opportunities only come once, seize them. Life is about the people you meet, and the things you create with them so go out and start creating. Life is short. Live your dream and share your passion.”

– The Holstee Manifesto.

Until we finish our own, this one works pretty well as a placeholder 🙂
