"She is writing some of the saddest songs"

"...Nothing has captured my attention quite like Israeli singer/songwriter Noa Babayof...Babayof's haunting voice brings to mind Joni Mitchell, Nico and even Marissa Nadler. She is writing some of the saddest songs this side of Leonard Cohen..." - Heeb Magazine


"I dont think i have heard a voice as glorious and haunting"

"...I dont think i have heard a voice as glorious and haunting as noa's in many a year. simply put, the record is absolutely gorgeous and really quite romantic..." - Captains Dead blog


""...I dont think i have heard a voice as glorious and haunting as noa's in many a year. simply put, the record is absolutely gorgeous and really quite romantic...""

"Striking work by this Israeli singer-songwriter, possessing a willowy, chilling voice and milky lower register, delicately accented in the style of a femme Nick Drake channeling Nico, that lends a spectral presence to this gorgeously arranged set...Thrilling both instrumentally and in its welcoming, outstretched ambiance, its gentle, mildly unsettling facades chase the sun down with a bewitching drive..." - Other Music website


"she evokes a sad yet arresting timelessness which brings to mind Sandy Denny, Vashti Bunyan, early Joni Mitchell"

Noa Babayof is a singer-songwriter from Israel who was discovered by Greg Weeks of Espers fame. Noa's beautiful and haunting new album, From A Window To A Wall, was released a few weeks ago on Weeks'Language Of Stone label which is being distributed by Drag City. The album was produced and recorded by Greg and our friend Brian McTear had a hand in the mixing.

Writing all her own songs, she evokes a sad yet arresting timelessness which brings to mind Sandy Denny, Vashti Bunyan, early Joni Mitchell and more contemporary SSW's like Marissa Nadler. But with those comparisons aside, Babayof's got a rich, warm voice and her intensity is heightened by the dramatic string arrangements on the album, and the lull, exquisite pacing of the songs.

She's currently on a tour that brings her to Philly on Tuesday July 15th; she'll be playing The First Unitarian Church with Meg Baird and Brooklyn folkie Sharon Van Etten. - Some Velvet Morning

Bio

The young Israeli singer/songwriter Noa Babayof is rapidly establishing a presence on the new international folk scene.
Her debut album From A Window To A Wall was recently recorded and mixed by renowned Greg Weeks (The Espers) at his studio in Philadelphia. The album is set for a US/European release in spring 2008 on Weeks' new analog recording label Language of Stone.

From A Window To A Wall features lush string arrangements backing up Noa's arresting singing and writing style. Noa is influenced by the likes of Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell and Bob Dylan, along with such contemporary icons as Diane Cluck, Smog and the Espers. Anova Music, Noa's Israeli management and label, released From A Window To A Wall locally in fall 2007.

The Album will be released in the US with Language Of Stone on June 17, 2008
