On March 21, 2011, the English folk/rock band Noah and the Whale played their first of 2 sold out shows at New York’s Bowery Ballroom.  Opening the show was 22 year old Luke Rathborne, whose sound was a nice mix of Bob Dylan and Lou Reed.  Noah and the Whale have been around since 2006 and the world is finally starting to take notice of the 5 piece band after the success of their latest single “L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.”  I enjoyed what I heard and don’t let the “folk” label scare you away because Noah and the Whale rocked.  Lead singer Charlie Fink introduced every song to the audience (sometimes with an anecdote) and the crowd was loving what they heard.  Fun fact about Noah and the Whale:  the band takes their name from the movie “The Squid and the Whale” which was directed by Noah Baumbaugh.

    Exquisite lyrics conveying such wisdom in the truly remarkable stories in Noah and The Whale third album, reaching far beyond the years of the exceptional writer Charlie Fink. The whimsical charm that seemed to captivate audiences in the first album is still very much present in their new work, added to by the enthralling sense of anticipation of discovery, and the indescribable elation the thought of a new world brings. This making Noah and The Whale a band of great intrigue, appealing to audiences of all ages with their versatile and intractable songs, that speak of life in its entirety using lyrics that could be classed as poet and very moving, showing nothing but inexplicable beauty they seem to portray in every beat of their music so perfectly.

    Noah and the Whale you are a rare and remarkable phenomena.
    X With Love to you all X
