STEVE NOONAN, A FORMER RECORDING ENGINEER FOR PRINCE, IS A BLEND OF INFLUENCES: 70'S ARTISTS LIKE NEIL YOUNG AND WARREN ZEVON; AND 80'S POST MODERN BANDS LIKE THE CURE, AND ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN.  THE END RESULTS ARE CLEAR VOCALS ENTWINED IN PLEASINGLY CONNECTED SECTIONS, ALL SURROUNDED BY HIS 12-STRING GUITAR'S LUSH OPEN CHORDS. 

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 REPRESENTED A NEW LEVEL TO NOONAN'S MUSIC. ENLISTING DUSTIN BURNETT—A NASHVILLE AREA PRODUCER—THE RECORD FURTHER HIGHLIGHTED STEVE NOONAN'S LYRICAL ABILITY, AND EXPLORED THE EMOTION THAT A BIGGER, FULLER ROCK ARRANGEMENT CAN EVOKE FROM HIS WELL-CRAFTED SONGS. HIS THIRD RECORD, I COULD BE ANYWHERE, ALSO RECORDED IN NASHVILLE WITH DUSTIN BURNETT ON THE PROJECT, SHOWCASES NOONAN’S EVOLVING ARTISTRY WITHIN A HARDER EDGE.
