It's been a long time coming but the new material is finished, and after many hours in the rehearsal studio, we are ready to return to Linden Underground Studio to record the second half of the album...
Ariel Weissberger, Robin Mitchell and Kevin Hummel
Getting the band back together: Reuniting the team of Ariel Weissberger and Kevin Hummel—my 'go to' rhythm section. Heading back into the studio to be recorded by Jeff Cook (pictured here with Ariel) in set up mode.
It's been about 13 months since we were first in Linden Underground studio working on the first half of the album. The best things take time...and hopefully these songs have matured over the last year, just like us!
New York City has a great artistic community and a (some may think surprising) sense of helping each other out. During my time here I have been honored to have been asked to play in various collaborations. I believe strongly that music is best shared. Music gives us an opportunity to bring people together, mix things up and make something special. This place can be tough, we need all the support we can get!
The Mona Dahls are an NYC based alt folk band led by the amazingly talented and unique Orly Bendavid. I've been playing keys and melodica and adding harmonies since 2011.
Actionplay is a New York City based educational outreach organization dedicated to improving the lives of individuals on the autism spectrum, their families, and the community at large. I have been honored to play in the band for the past three years—helping to put on some amazing, moving, heart warming shows. Great talent, great tunes!

During the session, it was an absolute pleasure to be joined by one of my favorite singer of recent times, the amazing Kat Edmonson. Kat waltzed in just in time to blow us all away with her sultry tones, duetting with Noah on his beautiful song, 'Waiting For My Moon' (at 18:30 into the session). (Pretty awesome piano on that one too, if I do say so myself!)
Later we hot footed it to The Mercury Lounge to launch the second album from Noah and The Megafauna: The Pale Blue Dot.
