"In a world where all too many guitarists get swept up by the glitter and glamour of modern rock guitar sounds, and can't seem to live without a series of guitar effect pedals in front of them, it is so refreshing to hear Noam playing without all those electronic enhancements.
Noam relies merely on his hands and the basic qualities of his amplifier to produce the sweet tones that he plays.
I think that it is more honest, in keeping with Noam's own personality."
- Eli Dr. Blues Marcus
Chairman, the Israel Blues Society
Noam Dayan has been playing professionally both electric and acoustic Blues, and keeps it’s tradition alive in Israel.
At the age of 18, Noam was introduced to the Blues and started exploring this world, studying and learning from whatever records he could find around the country.
During the next few years he played both electric and acoustic Blues with several bands before moving to Chicago in 1997.
There he had the chance to expand his musical feeling and after a while he played the Blues clubs in and out of the windy city. After coming back to his homeland, he established the Noam Dayan Blues Band, playing soulfull blend of traditional Blues, Gospel, Soul and Jazz. The band is playing on stages across Israel and considered to be one of the leading groups of authentic Blues in the country, striving to “preach” it's spirit to Israeli audiences.
Alongside Performing, Noam also teaches Blues guitar and does educational projects concerning the Blues.
For This presented album, Noam Chosed to record acoustic tunes from his live repertoire, both originals and covers of old tunes he always loved to play. Delta country Blues and Chicago Blues was few of his biggest ifluences, and as a result of the passion and respect he share for those traditions, listening to the album might take you to "A Whole New Land" !
