Noah Glenn's music has been called "a brave brand of progressive pop with an organic indie-pop familiarity that is both reminiscent and radical.” It is equal parts past, present, and future, drawing on the pop and rock of 60s yet twisting it into something new and inventive. It sounds as close to the Beach Boys as it does to Beck.
Noah is a songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and audio engineer who pastes together collages of sound by blending the familiar sounds of guitars, drums, and rich vocal harmonies with with instruments that are not-quite-standard rock-n-roll fare, such as glockenspiel, mandolin, woodwinds, clavinet, melodica banjo - or whatever else can be found. His music is somehow able to experiment with shifting time signatures and occasionally slip into dissonance while always remaining undeniably catchy.
His music has been featured by Performer Magazine, npr.org, and thepalestra.com, as well as various newspapers.
Noah Glenn is a proud Arkansas native who now makes his home in Memphis, TN.
Here's how the music has been described:
“…a lush sound with acres of instrumental exploration, playful harmonies, and an overall sense of relaxed songwriting. Glenn forges a brave brand of progressive pop… with an organic indie-pop familiarity that is both reminiscent and radical.”
“Glenn [pastes] together rich yet not overstuffed sound collages of discordant strings, banjos, hand claps, harmonies, toy piano, and virtually everything else… Captivating.”
-The Commercial Appeal, Memphis
"Fun, catchy, playful, and a bit nonsensical. Definitely something to get familiar with."
"Blown away. [Lafayette & Luxia] must be one of the ten best records I've ever heard."
-Mark Snyder, composer
