ABOUT MAD NOISE
Fans have described their sound as everything from "Acoustic Neo-Soul Street-Funk" to "Punk-Blues", crediting their diversity and DIY aesthetic. After quickly scoring mentions in East Bay Express, the SF Chronicle, along with SF Weekly's, the Daily Californian's, and SF Bay Guardian's "BEST OF" 2011, MAD NOISE headlined at Yoshi's SF and earned two more "BEST OF THE BAY" titles from the SF Bay Guardian in 2012 and 2013. While deeply rooted in the blues, what makes MAD NOISE inimitable is their ability to draw from styles around the world, from folk and jazz to punk and pop. Their live performances are characterized by their raw energy, intricate vocal harmonies, collective improvisation, and ability to connect with their audiences. MAD NOISE began as a busking band in 2010, entertaining the streets of San Francisco. In only four years, this eclectic ensemble received numerous awards from SF Bay Area press. They’ve performed in prestigious venues and festivals along the West Coast, including Great American Music Hall, Yoshi’s Jazz Club, and the Freight and Salvage. In 2015, they were selected out of hundreds of bands to tour internationally with the American Music Abroad program.
Frumosa is my first self-produced album, which I released in 2013.
