Called 'a new American Badass' by Timeout New York, and 'One of Four Soul Singers You Should Know About' by Trace Magazine, Neycha is back with another genre defiant and prolific release, White Noise. The disc, arguably a musical thesis on post-homicide survival, (the murder of Neycha's long time beau in 2002) has been called 'gutwrenching, bangin' and indeed a breakthrough' by Village Voice writer Greg Tate. Neycha delivers with melodic fierceness and in your face brashness. The CD, which features piano, and a live string quartet, brings together seamlessly acoustic and electronic worlds laced with menacing beats. Neycha's unique and haunting vocals, dynamic writing, and superb arranging skills are full front and center on this record. And it is her distinct production choices that provide the foundation and focus for a record that hosts over 20 musicians and vocalists. White Noise, the record which Neycha began writing on her mother's piano while living back home in the blue ridge mountains of Virginia, has since gone on to be blessed by the hands of engineers, musicians, and producers who've collectively worked with Norah Jones, David Bowie, Peter Gabrielle, Wutang, T.I., Madonna, Lenny Kravitz, Beyonce', Destiny's Child, Garbage, Me'Shell Ndegeochello, Mary J. Blige, and a number of other extraordinary artists. This is great music from a talented singer, songwriter and producer. White Noise will no doubt excite all of Neycha's fans and is likely to gain the attention of a whole new audience. White Noise was mastered by Emily Lazar at The Lodge, mixed by Kevin Ryan and Neycha at Rhythm Lab, recorded by Peter Karl at Peter Karl Studios, Harry at Night Flight Studios, Bennet Paster at Benny's Wash & Dry, and Kevin Ryan at Rhythm Lab.
