Gene Noble rattles every emotion with his 'Rebirth of Gene'
Sometimes I wonder if an artist's pain is truly what drives their expressionistic nature, or if they simply have mocked up a story to create a persona that seems detached and emotional in all colors. We've seen artist reach emotional extremes, tragically, and we've heard numerous stories and personal experiences through our favorite musicians. Ironically, sometimes the most emotionally outspoken artists tell the greatest tale, relatable and heart felt in principle.
To refrain from rambling for too long, let me introduce you to Gene Noble. Gene is an unsigned R&B act with a ton of background and even more...
Video Premiere: Gene Noble “Imagination”'
As promised, rising r&b talent, Gene Noble, blesses us with the OKP premiere of his new video, “Imagination.” The song is definitely a favorite of mine, and yeah, I’ll go ahead and say that same for the video (things get a little steamy). The crisp visuals play out a very relatable story of lost love with a sultry companion playing as Gene’s co-star (yeah, if someone has that name, go ahead and pass it along). Video directed by Bast Pictures. Gene’s debut EP, Rebirth of Gene, is out now via iTunes. Stream it in full, below (easily one of the best r&b releases I’ve heard in awhile)...
FADER PREMIERE - Gene Noble, “Imagination”
Gene Noble was born in Kansas, raised in New York, and is now based in LA, and it seems like his well-traveled existence translates into some pretty heartfelt R&B songs. On “Imagination,” he half-remembers a love affair, wondering Were you ever really here? Or is it just my imagination? It’s a tear-jerker, too, as Noble’s sensitive vocals soar over some smoothed-out production. The song is from his debut project, Rebirth of Gene, out next week...
Gene Noble’s ‘Rebirth of Gene’ takes listener on journey through pain, love and fantasy
Singer and songwriter, Gene Noble invites us on a personal, honest and intimate journey through love, pain and fantasy in his new EP, Rebirth of Gene. Noble’s EP flirts with emotions while ardently being carried by soulful sounds that make for a sensual experience.
Infectious hooks on tracks like, ‘Hide Away’ delve into the complications of dishonesty in relationships, the lust and desire for two women and the power of temptation. Noble continues with this theme until he flips the script on tracks like “Hide Away” and replays a similar situation, but as a victim of deceit and from a different perspective – his own...
DJBooth Stream Gene Noble - Aware
...Setting the mood on this unique R&B tune, Lion’s Share cooks up a flanged, synth-driven beat that has a very funky, unique vibe. Most R&B singers would struggle with the quirky production, but it fits Noble perfectly. His feathery, fluttering vocals glide atop the beat and lend some smoothness to the coarse, textured track. Just so you are Aware, The DJBooth will have an exclusive stream of the artist’s new album, Rebirth of Gene, next Monday, one day before the album officially drops on March 4....
Gene Noble’s ‘Rebirth Of Gene’ Is Worth The Price Of Admission For R&B Enthusiasts
It may not mean much to Gene Noble in the long run. He may not even come across these words that were typed while his Rebirth Of Gene LP rumbled out of a certain set of speakers. But Gene Noble earned himself a new fan. Despite what’s peddled as modern-day, quality R&B, Noble’s Rebirth taps into inspirations and reservations that’ll take him further than a radio spin here and a radio spin there ever will. Love is the predominant theme of the project – surprise, surprise – as is the maddening prospect of discovering and maintaining the emotion in a society that sometimes seems hellbent on drowning in misery.
Aggressive moments are few and far between. Instead, the 10-track journey is more of a mystic escape into R&B’s creative abyss infused with a dosage of soul....
First Listen: Gene Noble Is Trying To Make You “Aware”
Lots of young male R&B artists are dismissed as cookie cutters of the uber-successful Chris Brown and Trey Songz, but there are those out here who are working hard to break those over-baked molds. On his debut, Rebirth of Gene, the independent New York City based singer/songwriter, Gene Noble, is definitely one of the unexpected discoveries of 2014. Some gratuitous profanity here and there aside, Noble’s soulful debut has several gems worth reviewing, including the harmonically devastating political jam, “Lies,” the feel good brightness that is “HideAway,” and the sweeping power ballad, “Wherever You Are.” As strong as his natural singing voice is, Noble’s melisma rich falsetto is that much more awe-inspiring. ...
