Noam Weinstein (no-ahm wyne-styne) is an American singer-songwriter and guitarist. He is best known for his collaborations with other artists such as Mike Viola, Heather Masse, Sam Sadigursky, and Norah Jones.[1][2][3]

Biography[edit]

Noam Weinstein grew up in Cambridge, Massachusetts[3][4] and began playing guitar as a child and performing at local clubs during high school.[5][6] In 1999 he moved to New York City and joined the Greenwich Village songwriting community led by Jack Hardy.[7] From 2001-2012 he released six albums in the US[8] (five studio projects and a live album recorded at The Living Room in New York[9]); a seventh, the compilation Sixteen Skies, was distributed in Europe.[10]

Recognition[edit]

Although a widespread audience has eluded Weinstein so far,[11] his music has received critical acclaim in publications like Performing Songwriter,[12] The New Yorker,[13] and The Boston Globe,[3] and airplay on prominent stations such as WFUV, WXPN, and WERS.[14] In addition, Weinstein's song "I Can Hurt People" was featured on the Showtime series Weeds,[15] and several others have been recorded by indie artists such as Mieka Pauley, Greta Gertler, and Jess Tardy.

Recent Work[edit]

On April 1, 2014, Weinstein announced the release of his latest studio album, Bottlefed, self-produced but featuring a number of collaborators from his earlier projects. (According to eNoam, the album's title refers to "a collection of twelve new songs about the innocent, the infantile, and the imitated.") [16]
