Boy (Jon) meets girl (calls herself Grr) in the green rolling hills of Western MA.
Boy & girl form a band. That band is noumenon – irreverent,
unclassifiable & sometimes unpronounceable. Heavily influenced by rock, grunge, punk & blues, noumenon uses acoustic guitars
& raw, powerful vocals to create a pared-down folk-core sound that is nonetheless capable of blowing out eardrums.
The duo has produced one album: cherryhole, & continues to pen songs & perform live in Berkshire County, MA
MEMBERS: Grr - Lead Vocals | Experienced theatrical performer & blues singer who has always not-so-secretly aspired to be a rock star. Years of vocal training in the theatre has led her to develop a voice that could potentially be used as a sonic weapon. Jon - Guitar & Vocals | Classically-trained pianist, vocalist & composer. Believes classical & rock music are not such different animals. Takes inspiration from such original punk rockers as Beethoven & Mussorgsky, & incorporates his classical training into the writing of popular songs.

PAWN SHOP SAINTS
Pawn Shop Saints play self-described "New England Americana" ... a sparser, harder, and darker rural feeling music with less of a blue-grass influence than most Americana genres. Think Welch/Rawlings, with a slighter edge.
After several years of solo projects, co-front men Jeb Barry & Mike O'Neill (formally of the 80s & 90s power pop group 'The Typicals') are back with the Americana-folk-alt country group: Pawn Shop Saints.
The result is a sparse, melodic, acoustic sound not often heard in the contemporary Americana genre.
'Drag the River'
All recording was done live in a basement studio with
little or no overdub, 2 microphones, in one take - and
all mistakes are included. No computers, Pro Tools, or
Auto tuners are used, nor will they ever be. What you
hear is a realness often missing from so many current
artists. The group is in the process of expanding with
new members for future live shows.
