“Noah has recently been signed by Talent Consultants International (TCI) in New York, an artist management and booking firm celebrating its 30th Anniversary this year. "We're very excited to have Noah at the forefront of TCI's expansion as we prepare for the next 30 years in music," says artist manager Cindy da Silva, "this talented singer/songwriter/pianist is that rare kind of artist that our industry is craving, whether they realize it or not."”

"an exquisite, no holds barred powerhouse!"

“After the first listen I gave it a break then revisited the album. It then hit me; it is his unique voice that makes Pine’s music what it is.”

“Noah Pine is a talented man. He puts poetry to music, real life to music, sorrow, pain, happiness, and thoughtfulness to music. He will make you ponder, wonder, cry, and even smile. The total strength of this album, besides Noah Pine’s incredible vocal deliveries, is the musical arrangements and the lyrical stories behind the songs. Artistically, it doesn’t get much better than “Songs For Julie Love.””

“Noah Pine sounds to embody a perplexing-, yet quite authentic intersection between early days Dean Martin, Elton John, the timeless delirium of Tom Waits, and family friendly lounge jazz. While the musical production values reek top of the heat studio quality with competent emphasis exhibited towards the cultivation of many timeless harmonic passages orchestrated via a lush, traditional sound, Pine's unique vocal delivery doubtless equates with the cherry on top, while simultaneously reigning as the sole component to determine your feelings towards the content via a blink of an eye. Noah Pine sings as he would have spent the last week in the company of a truck filled with bourbon and chose not to not remain thirsty in the process at all…… he chooses not to refrain from embracing the "lonely bitter pianist in the bar" ethos in a pretty much cartoonish manner, and the passion filling this commitment is unquestionable... Noah Pine is someone you want to keep an eye on ”

“Noah Pine's Rising Star -By Stephen Humphreys (Birmingham Weekly) It is less than two months since Noah Pine's release of his latest CD, but it all began steeped in rich history, informed by influences as diverse as Pine's avid reading of Hemingway and Michener, to his touring as an opening act for Maroon 5 since the age of 18. The many infuences show in the wide variety of descriptions of his music: funk, rock, rockabilly, R&B, and jazz. Comparisons as diverse as Leon Russell for raw energy and Billy Joel for studied artifice, Tom Waits, Beck, Joe Cocker, Elton John and laconic lyrical observations of Randy Newman ("I wish I could say love goes away, but it lasts forever"). Singing and playing keyboards, Pine sometimes shows the controlled drive and arch observation of Steely Dan, sometimes the melodious reverie of a Spandau Ballet. But Pine combined all these influences into his own, unique electric energy that ranges from serious to burlesque in tone.....”

“This is just the right kind of new music you’re looking for in your life, and you probably haven’t heard someone sing with so much soul and passion since you can remember. Noah has a voice that makes you feel and lyrics that draw you into the detail of emotion and experience. Currently with the hordes of candy corn Pop music and overabundance of electronically manipulated voices, Noah displays the purity of his craft and gives a shining example of what real music sounds like.”

“Pine’s music reminds me of Tom Waits. While he does not sound like he gargles cement as Waits does his erratic delivery is in the same league. His musical arrangements are built around his piano playing then branches out chaotically, intriguing the listener’s ears. When you put it all together you get a nice piece of music that is original and given time becomes a nice listen.”

“Noah Pine presents wondrous jazz and blues vocals, piano and organ on his new release, Songs for Julie Love. His piano playing is of the quality that a piano bar would hire. Additionally, Pine creates unique vocal delivery by rolling words on his tongue in a blues style similar to that of Randy Newman. Songs For Julie Love encompasses musical styles that vary from something akin to New Orleans jazz (“Fall Into My Arms”) to blues-jazz fusion (“No More Fighting”) and straight out blues (“Juan Belmonte”). His vocal range is best exhibited on “It’s a Holiday (Every Day You Breathe),” in which he goes from a baritone to a high tenor by using different vocal inflections. The fantastic closer “Noach Jam” shows Pine’s skills on the piano as well as Hammond organ. Accompanying Pine on the album are Ken Gregory on bass, trumpet and trombone, Chris Alpiar on Saxophone, and Mike Haid on drums. Pine’s album is available now on iTunes”

“I was left speechless after listening to this whole cd. Not once did I skip a song just to hear the next, not once did I speed through some lyrics to hear the rest, not once have I taken this album out of my music player yet! Searching for a gem in a bucket full of diamonds is rather useless, and so is trying to find a standout track on this album. Everything just works as a whole. Noah Pine is a talented man. He puts poetry to music, real life to music, sorrow, pain, happiness, and thoughtfulness to music. He will make you ponder, wonder, cry, and even smile. The total strength of this album, besides Noah Pine’s incredible vocal deliveries, is the musical arrangements and the lyrical stories behind the songs. Artistically, it doesn’t get much better than “Songs For Julie Love.””

“Noah Pine: “Songs For Julie Love,” Something Uniquely Original And Fresh! Every now and then an artist comes out of nowhere to impress you with a music release that is far beyond expectations. Noah Pine does just that with his CD “Songs For Julie Love.” His voice is resonant, burly, and soulful as hell; it seems to have time-traveled straight from Joe Cocker’s Woodstock days. The songs are spunky keyboard-driven, horn-filled retro rhythms, with eloquent modern touches; the obvious nods to jazz, soul, gospel, and pop without ever sounding forced or faked-up. The sound is lush and organic, propelled by crisp beats, acoustic pianos, trumpets, and soaring saxophones; the whole thing just makes you want to stand up and listen!

“. This seasoned cat delivers rock, funk, soul, R&B, jazz and whatever musical electricity is pumping though his veins at the moment. His music has been described as Randy Newman meets Billy Joel while worshiping at the temple of Leon Russell. The album's title refers to a favorite teacher of Pine's when he was very young. Julie Love was kidnapped, robbed, assaulted and murdered in Atlanta in 1988. The connection he felt with her remains strong. "These songs are dedicated to Julie Love," Pine says. " She was my teacher, and she was stolen from the world in 1988. She is living in my music." Pine is a well read man taking in books from Michener to Hemingway and a lot of biographies, a fact that exhibits itself in the depth of his lyrics. Take the song "It's A Holiday." "I feel music in my life, running its course, its path through my veins, chest and heart. Human condition, feel pain, pleasure balance the tightrope since the garden of Eden. Prison guards cut the chains.....”

“Singer/songwriter Noah Pine plays and sings piano and is a very talented performer. His unique and out-of-the-box style and vibe are unlike anyone else.”

“Thursday, Jan. 27 @ The Max Canada The Max Canada , if awkwardly positioned venue for both a smooth, funky R&B outfit from Atlanta, and Athens’s premier MC. With no need for a last name, NOAH stormed into Athens with honey-smooth vocals and some impressive instrumental chops to match. Joined by a soaring electric guitarist, drummer and conga player, NOAH showed off his jazz background on the keyboards all night, riffing in the high-end one moment only to leap across the ivories and hammer home gorgeous, low-end chords that at times worked almost like a walking bassline. Every song seemed to build to an epic conclusion, whether via NOAH’s vocal gymnastics (comparable to Maroon 5’s Adam Levine) or his guitarist’s skyrocketing, Funkadelic-flavored solos. This is an act that could play the the Variety Playhouse, New Earth Music Hall, or even Aftermath if they were so inclined, and that’s a pretty exciting prospect for both Atlanta and Athens.”

“Friends, Family, People of the jury, Noah Pine has a mysterious groove and I find it vital to spread his word. I have been listening to Noah ever since high school. Noah’s expression of music seems to have melted down to the core of what makes a spectacular tune. There is never too little nor too much in his music. The life experiences, your first kiss, the drop of sweat tickling your spine, a dog barking, all the things that make up this world Noah is able to see through the eyes of music. His voice is an organic style that is hard to come by these days. With breakdowns in songs like “standing on the sunset”, we can all acknowledge these guys are damn good at what they do. Upon hearing “Noah vibe” I couldn’t help but to think I have actually found something new, fresh, crisp, and damn original. Check out Noah’s myspace for his philosophy, well known artists he has accompanied on stage, and of course the grooves. Your Servant, mervtone. ”
