Get swept away by Noe's debut album -12 songs of whimsy and longing. With its intricate, acoustic-meets-electronic arrangements and imagistic lyrics, this album is a listener favorite.
Boots was released in 2000, and was produced by Todd Sickafoose (bassist for Ani DiFranco) on an extremely simple home setup - the modern equivalent of an eight track recorder. But you'd never guess it from the sound.
What they said:
"Here we have a home grown, full blown musical visionary, and an insight into a part of the new San Francisco sound. This train is headed somewhere." --Puremusic.com
"Only a couple of records lately have pulled me from song to song to the end; one was Van Morrison’s Down the Road and the other was Noe Venable’s Boots." --LA Weekly
