I have spent the last (almost) year getting to know the band Hello Noon. Aside from being incredible musicians and songwriters, the folks in Hello Noon are some of the kindest, most genuine people you will ever meet. Every project, every recording, every show, regardless of the money or the amount of eyes on them, they give it their all. It doesn’t matter if the venue isn’t packed. It doesn’t matter if the venue won’t even pay for their parking. They are musicians that frequently play in and around the Los Angeles music scene because they love to perform.
They spend as much time as they can rehearsing, writing, and performing. …and they are great. They put on quite a show. The band members mesh together, creating a sound that is epic and towering. It’s the type of show that makes you want to wave your hands in the air and be part of their anthem during songs like “Follow Me” and “Into Place.” If you haven’t seen them live yet, I highly suggest it. I’ve had the privilege of seeing them perform several times now and I definitely do not want to miss the next show. Hello Noon’s music achieves, what I believe is, the ultimate goal of music. Their music takes you away from all of the realities and struggles of your life for a moment. You get to breathe and relax as you let the music enter into every single inch of your soul, you get to feel the drum beat pulse through your bones, you get to live in the present moment. You get to feel part of their band as you sing their lyrics in the audience. You feel with them.
They frequently play charity events and fundraisers, doing all they can to empower people and to create positive change. They use their music and their talent to make a true difference in this world. Last year Hello Noon threw a successful benefit concert for the Special Olympics.
Recently, Kate and Stephen have been visiting UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital to perform and jam with the young patients there. Their latest music video for their song “Morning Song” is out now and it’s powerful. Watch Kate and Stephen bring some joy the children’s hospital at UCLA. The song is a chill-vibe, folky ballad. It’s a short song but we bet you, before the song/video is over, you will have chills from how touching it is.
While you’re at it, make sure you follow their artist page on Spotify and listen to their album from start to finish. One of my personal favorite songs off of this record is “Blend” because of how catchy the chorus hook is.
