Noah Gundersen – The Sound

Noah Gundersen is the product of a lifetime of pushing boundaries and learning to craft his own perspective. His parents, although devoutly religious, encouraged a questioning of dogma and church hierarchy. They also instilled in him a love of music from an early age. Along with starting Noah on piano at age nine, Noah’s father taught him melody and tracked songs to a reel-to-reel tape recorder while Noah was growing up. Consequently, Noah started writing and recording himself at age 13, diving headlong into music, forming and leading bands, involving himself in the small but vibrant hardcore scene of Centralia, Washington, and writing prolifically all the while. After quitting his day job at 18 and spending a year living out of his car and on couches, playing small bars and coffee shops, Noah began to build a dedicated following and garner interest from the music industry.
Noah’s canon of albums and EPs delineates a clear path of growth from past works like his Family EP and his full-lengths Ledges and Carry the Ghost. Family, released in 2011, proved to be the endeavor that gained Noah’s songwriting skills acclaim on the national stage—the title track was featured on the TV shows Sons of Anarchy and The Vampire Diaries, while the song “David” was featured on the show The Following. Noah was also nominated for an Emmy for co-writing the tune “Day is Gone” for Sons of Anarchy. And recently, he’s opened up for internationally acclaimed, genre-spanning artists like Emmylou Harris, Beck, City & Colour, and Josh Ritter.

dada – The Bluebird

Since the release of dada’s groundbreaking 1992 debut Puzzle, the trio has created an array of songs boasting progressive rock musicianship, dazzling vocal harmonies and melodic power pop layered with inspired psychedelic and experimental rock impulses.

Adding to the trio’s groundbreaking line of attack are the marathon-length shows that deliver on the promise that every performance is the only one of its kind. Two decades after the Los Angeles outfit embarked on its singular journey, singer-guitarist Michael Gurley, singerbassist Joie Calio and drummer Phil Leavitt are celebrating dada’s 25th anniversary.

Jesse Malin – Meet Me at the End of the World

Few in the modern musical landscape have reinvented themselves like Jesse Malin, whose songwriting has shape-shifted through decades and genres and left an indelible mark on hardcore, punk, folk, and everything in between. Malin’s career began on Manhattan’s Lower East Side at the age of 12, when founded the pioneering hardcore band Heart Attack. Out of the ashes of Heart Attack, Malin formed D Generation, the influential punk band described by Rolling Stone as “the best thing to happen to New York noise in the Nineties,” but the years of hard living and volatile personalities caught up with the band by the end of the decade, and Malin needed a change. His debut solo album, 2002’s The Fine Art Of Self Destruction, produced by Ryan Adams, was stripped-down, acoustic, raw, and intimate, and it was an un­qualified smash with press on both sides of the pond. Malin would spend the next decade-and-a-half blurring the lines be­tween singer-songwriter and punk rocker, releasing a string of celebrated records including 2004’s self-produced The Heat, 2007’s Glitter In The Gutter, and 201 O’s Love It To Life. Throughout it all, he continued to circle the globe relentlessly, touring with everyone from Gogol Bordello and The Hold Steady to The Gaslight Anthem and Butch Walker, in addition to performing on The Tonight Show, Conan, Letterman, and more. After a five-year studio hiatus, Malin returned with a bang in 2015, releasing a pair of albums within seven months of each other. Showcasing a newfound musical adventurousness that tipped its cap to the bass-driven grooves of The Clash and punchy brass of Motown, New York Before The War and Outsiders found Malin tying together all the disparate threads of his musical life like never before.

See Jesse and his band this Saturday, August 19, at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park. It’s part of StrummerJam, celebrating the birthday of the late Joe Strummer of The Clash & The Mescaleros. He and his band will also back up special guests Brian Fallon, Craig Finn & Tad Kubler of Hold Steady, Ted Leo, Patrick Stickles of Titus Andronicus, Richard Barone, Daniel Rey, Anthony D’Amato, Don DiLego, Mike & Jonathan of Hollis Brown, Danny Clinch, RB Korbet, Supla of Brothers Of Brazil, and local favorites The Vansaders and Matty Carlock through a set of Clash & Strummer classics!
