Save Now or Save Later?

LA Music Scene (90)

The muse struck at a young age and began with Ernie's Record Shop on Lankershim Blvd. In North Hollywood where I purchased my first Beatle record "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" and a record by Major Lance titled "Um,Um,Um,Um,Um,Um". From there I saw the Beatles at the Hollywood Bowl and I was hooked...on Rock N' Roll. At the age of 13 it seems as if the magical world of Rock N' Roll opened up and welcomed me. A trip to Indio with Frank Zappa and possee, and subsequent gigs as a dancer at The Teen Fairs at the Hollywood Palladium sealed the deal. As a trained journalist, I've written for magazines, newsletters,newspapers and blogs. In addition, I have run a nightclub by the name of The Cave. Music is the thread that weaves a patchwork quilt of genres, venues and experience out of my life and in the process have introduced many fine acts to my followers.

For the rest of my story dear readers, read my articles and it will unfold like the petals of a lotus flower.

"It was surreal being there," bassist Johnny Adger says of touring Europe in 2010 with Them Crooked Vultures. "On the first night, [Dave Grohl, John Paul Jones, and Josh Homme] introduced themselves to us. I was like 'yeah, I know who you are,'" he laughs.

When they landed in Philadelphia after an 8-hour flight from France, Hypno5e's bassist Gredin and their light guy were denied entry into the US. "Customs wouldn't let them in," drummer Thibault Lamy says, smoking a hand-rolled cigarette on the front patio at Bonnerhaus.

How did you get started in the music industry?
Noah:  I started recording myself around sixteen. I started with an actual 4 track tape recorder and worked my way up to teaching myself 
Pro-Tools and some other software. Now I pretty much do the same thing, just at a slightly bigger scale. I record everything at home,
and work independantly for the most part. I guess the only difference now is that more people listen to what I make, so that's cool.

What makes your music unique?
Noah: I'm a big fan of juxtaposition. It seems like bands can go in a very electronic direction, with synths and drum machines, or a very natural 
direction with acoustic guitars and natural drums, slide guitar ect. I like to take my favorite elements of both and try to play them 
against each other. And then find a harmony between the two that's compelling.  I think that juxtaposition is what makes a lot art 
compelling. Something that you want to look at or listen to more than once.

What would you call your style of music?
Noah:  Acoustic songs with a lot of electronic elements. 
Indie is probably where I fit in the best, literally and genre-wise, but I've always made music similar to what I make now. 
And I've never felt like I fit in comfortably into any genre. But I think a lot of artists feel that way, so I'll leave it to other people to 
decide what to call it. 

What has been your favorite gig so far and why?
Noah:  I was playing at someone's house in Northern California. I was outside and the place was in the mountains. As soon as I started playing 
there was a really strong echo coming from the mountains on both sides. At first I thought it was going to be distracting but after a 
few minutes it got really addicting. After a while I was just making sounds to hear what they would sound like coming back. 
That was really fun.

Any advice to a band/solo artist trying to cut their first CD?
Noah:  Yeah, people aren't as interested with the specific sound of your music as much as the soul behind it. Don't force anything, 
and keep it simple.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Noah:  Making music no matter what. Hopefully on an even bigger scale. 

What do you like about NoHo?
Noah:  I live in the arts district so there are so many awesome things so close together. One of my favorite things in NoHo is 
"Kulak's Woodshed". It's a music venue that's set up like a TV studio and the perfomances are broadcast live on the internet.
It's a great place to play and there's a very supportive music community there.

The first time I saw and heard Dean Regan perform was at The North Hollywood Church of Religious Science. Dean is a phenomenal singer with a vocal style and range that is reminiscent of the giants in Old School Broadway.
