A band must beat as one to matter. This philosophy powers the pure American music of Jamie Lono & Noble Heart. Formed on the outskirts of one of the largest cities in the world, the band’s collections of sounds and lyrics bred intimate songs that grew undisturbed by the distractions of the urban landscape. It was in this environment that
Jamie’s unique tenor melded with the playing of Tushar Sapru and Scott Woyach together to create a singular sound.
After first coming to prominence as a singer, Jamie Lono strived to transcend this former role into a true American troubadour, and dedicated himself to writing. This love of songcraft connected him to two acquaintances who unknowingly shared a musical history – all were members of the suburban Chicago hardcore scene. Seemingly ironic to come from such aggression and developing a musical focus on poignant and occasionally vulnerable storytelling, yet the band maintains that genre and style are mere embellishments of the soul of a band: the songs.
Paralleling their penchant for direct and communicative music, the band’s 1st release “Jamie Lono & Noble Heart: The Live EP” is lean and raw, leaving the songs no room to hide behind “studio magic.” The foundation of the EP was constructed over 6 months, integrating fragments of chord progressions, lyrics, verses, and hooks into cohesive works and recorded at various friends’ apartments and basements.
Taking these pieces and amalgamating them into a cohesive package proved their worth, and infused them with budding confidence. This initial offering proves that the soul of this band is strong, and pulsating with possibilities.
