"Rhapsodize", "The One", "Take Time" and "A Day in the Life (of a dog), "Bop-ba-do-Baa" and "R.O.C.K at the U. of A." have all gotten radio airplay. Our music is available at over 250 digital or physical stores worldwide. "At This Moment" features 12 diverse, original tracks and a great "suburban retro rock" remake of "Only Wanna Be With You" "The tracks are a mixture of silly fun songs, beautiful ballads and a wide range of stylistic
rock tunes with political & social commentary that get better with every listen." - Interdual Radio Tracks include "Move On", a swinging vocal jazz song co-written by Daniel Work & Marv Ross/Quarterflash; and
"I Am", a bold statement with a big sonic landscape about society and Americanism, co-written by Daniel Work & Jake Oken-Berg. The CD features over a dozen amazing artists including Grammy winner and friend Doug Smith,
ala the "August Rush" soundtrack. Doug's on "Take Time" a fun, light-hearted jazz-rock song written by Daniel Work.
The Noted's "Him & Her" vocally woven music
gets compared to Collective Soul, Train, Sir Paul McCartney, Steely Dan, Dave Matthews Band, Goo Goo Dolls,
Foo Fighters, Alan Parsons, Coldplay,
Five For Fighting, Tom Petty, The Fray, Jackson Browne, Fleetwood Mac and others. We'd love to hear from you.
