“What people have said about Steve Noonan and his Music “
Xroads #13, November 2008 - France Jacques-Eric Legarde
“Everything is good on Steve Noonan’s Bringing it Back Home…(CD)
the intimate atmosphere of a guy face to face with himself,
armed with his seasoned voice and supported by a flawless guitar playing - on true and honest songs…”
ROCKTIMES - May 2009 Germany
“ Steve Noonan is a Singer/Songwriter of the old school, who, with his trademark guitar playing, tells stories like Woody Guthrie, Phil Ochs, Tim Hardin or Bob Dylan. If he would have sung four decades ago - on any well-known stage, like he does on “Brinigin’ It Back Home” - his Songs would have been sung right after “Blowin in The Wind” and “Eve OF Destruction"
t Campfires all round the World . ”
