Press Release: Good Plan Gone To Waste by James Noon



Monday 28th November 2011

James Noon is a man on a mission: to bring back real music and to produce exceptional, independent songwriting.

‘Good Plan Gone to Waste’ is the second single to be released from his outstanding debut album ‘Astral’, which he has been touring the UK promoting over the last year, through his own independent label Meridiem Records.

After recording ‘Astral’ on an eight-track in his bedroom, James set about building his own studio at the bottom of his garden.

“It’s very important to me to retain artistic control and vision. The concept for ‘Astral’ (a ‘nod’ to Van Morrison’s ‘Astral Weeks’) “was to create a series of songs inspired by life, aspirations, love and dreams. A spiritual understanding of the world, metaphorical in narrative whilst heavily grounded in the pop format.”

Classically trained from an early age, his songs are a fusion of musical influences spanning genres from Jazz to Folk, Blues to Country. His lyrics paint timeless dreamscapes provoking emotional and nostalgic responses, all inspired by the most personal of experiences. ‘Good Plan Gone To Waste’ clearly shows Noon’s talent as a gifted songwriter and musician, with pitch perfect precision on lead guitar and beguiling vocals, which lend a smoky Blues quality to the single.
