Artichoke Music, Cafe Stage, Friday Night. Its a proud and prestigious Portland tradition now, and times have never been more inspiring for Artichokeans. My slot on this night is 9p-9:30p, and we will be doing a celebration of collaboration. I've been writing songs lately and sharing them with some close friends, and this night will be the showcase of that. Daniel Work and I will perform "Country Road", Woody Moran and I will perform "Real Love", and Dors Ward and I will perform "Pour Me Oakshire." Megan Cronin will accompany all, and there will be two more songs added in the time leading up to that, one of which will feature her very own luscious self. REALLy looking forward to this one!
6p - 8:30p. In support of Daniel Work, I will join his band on this Thursday night for his self-proclaimed "Soft-Release" of his newest album "Works In Progress." We will be playing some of his older material, a few choice covers (Beatles!), and in general, having fun sounding great in an old church. Nothing can ever go wrong ever again!!

“The Noted is a band of fine craftsmanship and musicality, and their new CD, "At This Moment," is a showcase of their skill. "The One" takes its place among the best of love songs, and its tender lyrics are nicely complemented by music that both understates and emphasizes its sentiment. How is that possible? You'll just have to listen to find out. "Take Time," a (literally) snappy and immediately engaging work, is a welcome revival of the age of very cool instrumentals. "Only Wanna Be With You" is both fun and musically literate, a nice and very rare combination. The band's sensitivities to broad issues and perspectives are revealed in songs such as "More Than Alright" and "At This Moment." -- Lou Marzeles, Editor & Publisher, The Goldendale Sentinel, former Music Editor, The Washington (DC) Times”
