"Play Human is a masterfully executed work of art."

Thrilled about this new review from Music Existence!

Here's an excerpt from the article.  Play Human is now available on iTunes…..

"The diversity of tracks on Play Human, plays an interesting role in the overall feel of the album. The first track that really stands out is “Hello Silverbird” which provides an 80’s rock feel with a little bit of edge. The lyrics, although simple and straight to the point, are conveyed on a very personal level with rich emotionality.

Coming at a completely different change of pace, is “Prayer for the World.” The meditative and foreign nature creates a sense of mysticism, which is an unusual characteristic for an American rock song. Hoffeld’s performance comes across as a siren crying for global scale peace, while still being introspective and ornately beautiful, even without words.

Overall, Play Human is a masterfully executed work of art. Each and every note on the album comes from a place of complete passion and is crafted perfectly to deliver Noah’s message."

Cello Rock Free Download!!!

Very excited to offer my Cello Rock song, Same Old Song, as a free download here!  Baeble Music says "Noah Hoffeld's cello rock is the new sound you never knew you needed." And Same Old Song "has an irresistible 80's feel with a beaming synth and tasty guitar licks…..honest and true."  The pop-rock track is about indulging in the joys of the music you grew up on.  Its the 6th track on the upcoming Play Human, which you can preorder here.  The release show at The Bowery Electric will be on August 5th at 8, featuring guitarist Thad DeBrock, who just got off the road with David Byrne,the great Aaron Nevezie on bass and Dave Burnett, who did all the amazing drumming on Same Old Song and the album.  Buy tix here and see you there!!!

Radio Rock


So psyched that tonite at 7 my song 'One Family' will be featured on radio. Great singer-songwriter Caroline Doctorow will spin the civil rights song on her show 'Songlines' on FM 89.5 WPKN Bridgeport. Tune in on your dial or online at WKPN.org This is also my radio-wave debut as a singer-songwriter!  Very excited to be a part of Caroline's broadcast and making a contribution to one of my biggest concerns: ending racism now.....

One Family Master Returns!

One Family has returned from being mastered by Andy VanDette!  The track sounds gorgeous and I'm super thrilled to have it so clear and beautiful.  The song was originally composed for MLK Day 2015. I'm singing and playing everything on it, as well as doing the mix.  One Family will get some air time soon on WPKN Bridgeport with host Caroline Doctorow.  Psyched to have this opportunity to share my support for Dr King's message.  It's not too late for the Dream.  Please share and help me spread the word in any way you can!

Love and Gratitude,
