When a project drips with the veteran musicianship of Clint Lowery, Scott Phillips, and the fresh perspective of an emerging artist like Gary Noon, it could only be branded with a name as tall as “Walking With Giants”.
Noon’s Hollywoodesque music trajectory was twisted by the hands of his biggest influences. He started developing his guitar chops in the 80’s, sifting through a variety of influences ranging from the rootsy styling’s of Bob Dylan, to gutsy tones of Van Halen. Through collaborations and church performances, Noon began to discover his own musical thumbprint. Channeling the hard rock edge of Sevendust and Alter Bridge, eventually he even aspired to spearhead a Sevendust/Alter Bridge tribute band.
Trading in admiration for collaboration, Noon was introduced to Lowery and Phillips through a mutual friend, closing the door on playing other’s music and opening the door to creating his own. Bringing to bear the support and participation of his heroes, Noon integrated the echoes of his idols with his own fresh perspective, yielding a rock sound that highlights each step of his journey.
The result is a recipe of energetic guitar lines (Noon, Lowery), melodic twists (Noon) and explosive percussion (Phillips). His soundtrack is upbeat and accessible, showcasing lyrics that serve as a direct link to his story.
“While the story seems unbelievable at times, the experience has felt natural and organic” said Noon. “That crossroads is the foundation of my music.”
