What a fun night chatting it up with singer, songwriter Gene Noble. I had no idea that we speak the same musical language. He practically honed his craft at the legendary Village Underground in New York City. That was my spot! Anyone who was serious about taking their vocals to higher levels would frequent this “land of truly gifted musicians”. It was there that we would all shed. The crowd was quick to let you know if they were feeling you. Or not. The brave ones would sign up, and hit the open mic when your name is called.
Gene was one of the regulars. He told us how he would put his name on the list, then quickly take it off if a great singer went on before him. Well, there were so many great ones. Thankfully, he mustered up the courage to get up there and show everyone what he was working with. He came back again and again. He said that it was there that he found his voice as a singer. And the rest, as they say, is history.
Keep your ears tuned to WHUR and we’ll let you know when his new album drops next month. In the meantime, hit him up on social media at: @iamgenenoble
