“A cozy, acoustic full-band performance”
Steve Noonan’s music is a blend of three main influences: 70's singer songwriters like Neil Young and Warren Zevon; 80's post modern bands like The Cure, and Echo and The Bunnymen; and finally, his days as a recording engineer for Prince. The end results are clear baritone-range vocals singing memorable melodies entwined in pleasingly connected pop sections, all surrounded by his 12-string guitar's lush open chords. He's been compared to artists like Tom Petty, David Bowie, and Oasis, but still retains his own musical thumbprint. His 2009 self-titled EP release established a sound in Minneapolis that is his own. The 2012 release of his second EP "A Mile Long" represents a new level to Noonan's music. Enlisting Dustin Burnett—a Nashville-based producer—the record further highlights Steve Noonan's lyrical ability, and explores the emotion that a bigger, fuller rock arrangement evokes from his well-crafted songs. His next record is in the works for a 2014 release.
