Man Called Noon is a Chicago based indie/alt rock band. Their roots are evident in their melodic mixture of Classic Americana, Pop, and Soul. Boisterous guitars and booming bass riffs erupt over impassioned soulful lyrics resulting in a distinct and in your-face-sound that can only be harnessed by Man Called Noon.
Each member brings a diverse element to the table for a lively and spontaneous stage show. Lead singer and rhythm guitarist Anthony Giamichael delivers introspective lyrics laden with anguish, passion, and grit, while bassist Dave Aitken keeps a flowing and steady beat culminating into colossal fortitude. Drummer Josh Fontenot, tops it off with a relentless driving force behind the music that keeps the band in check. This onslaught of guitars, drums, and vocals has virile and tough exterior with a heart of gold underneath.
Over time, the sound has evolved but remains true to its roots. Adding new core and indispensable members & players along the way. The addition of Nathan Crone as a multi-instrumentalist on keys, adds a layer to the song-writing that is subtle and sophisticated but defining of the sound and remembered in detail. Erin Piotrowski (Backing Vocals) adds the true vocal talent to the group. Her ability to add harmonies in and out of the studio, stay just behind the lead vocals to add her voice as an actual instrument, or make the stage her very own, as the lead, is unrivaled. James Manno as the lead guitarist is electric in his attack. His rhythms are crisp, cutting, passionate, and driven. His leads bite through the entirety of the song.
The difference in Man Called Noon’s newer efforts is the new focus on the melody, and the quality and depth of the vocal arrangements. The lyrical message has moved to the front of the class, and it blends well with the pending turmoil brewing just below the surface. The effort members put into structure and writing of the song from beginning to end is unified and collaborative.
