Gene Noble Announces Album & Leaks First Single - "Aware"

Courtesy Audible Treats.

In his single "Aware," which premieres today on Noisey, Gene brings classic R&B swagger into the 21st century with pulsing synths and his trademark falsetto. Together with his dark chords and spacious reverb, his seductive lyrics ("If you let me, I can be your cure / The healing for all you're longing for") help create a gorgeously-haunting vibe.



The not-so-quiet rumblings of an artist on the rise continue to intensify. At the center of the quake is new artist, Gene Noble. Putting it mildly, his vocal ability is relentless, powerful and emotional. "Life Music" is how Noble describes his music, "It's the stuff that expresses the feelings, emotions and words in a way that we want to say but often times can't." As a young army brat, he traveled the world to wherever his father was stationed, and while Noble was living in Germany at the age of four, his father, also named Gene, lost his life saving the life of another man.

The memories of his father became more and more distant, and music became Noble's sanctuary. He started playing piano at the age of 5 and wrote poetry before he ever sang. Noble soon gained an early love of jazz, gospel and legendary artist Prince. In school is where his love of rock, pop, and country came into play. His babysitter eventually introduced him to hip hop. After watching R&B artist D'Angelo perform on his Voodoo tour, Noble realized that he wanted to be an artist.

Over time Noble began to realize that he knew very little about his father Gene. In 2012, he realized that he had lived longer than his father had. It all hit him when a close friend was killed, leaving a young daughter behind. The loss was devastating. As he'd done in the past, Noble returned to his sanctuary, his music...the one place he could freely express his emotions and create his new EP, Rebirth of Gene.
