New York Gremmies is a new surf band led by guitar/harmonica sensation, Noé Socha! Noè has received widespread recognition of late for his youtube page, Blind Selfie. Reddit discovered his page helped to make Noè’s daily renderings of compositions by legendary musicians go viral.
Noé is a twenty-something wunderkind from Carpi, Italy. Because he plays slide guitar and harmonica (and perhaps even because he is blind) he is often referred to as a blues musician. Far from it. This guy is carving out some new musical ground and it’s not easy to define unless you like to use words like brilliant or inspired. You just never know what’s going to happen next. An original composition? A Meters cover? Or a harmonica/slide rendition of Billie Jean by Michael Jackson. Somehow it all makes sense. If he doesn’t grab you in the first 32 bars, just wait. Soon enough he will simultaneously echo his guitar improvisations on the harmonica.They’re working on their debut record, made of originals and a few covers, which Will be released in a few months. They are excited to perform this material at Arthur‘s Tavern.
