About Noah Lehrman
Noah Lehrman is an existential singer/songwriter, drummer/percussionist, and mutli-instrumentalist musician based in his native NYC.
Noah first burst onto the scene as founding member and drummer of jamband The Grove through their series of historic shows at the legendary Wetlands Preserve, hailed by Jambase.com as an “excellent mix of rhythmic vibes, psychedelic rock, jazzy structures, and country backbeat not to be missed” and “a musically mystical experience!”
Noah’s work as a singer/songwriter has been influenced both by his American masters and contemporaries, and by his travels and performances in Asia and Europe and ensuing encounters with local folk traditions and regional pop movements. Noah’s love songs use mystic imagery to explore universal themes, and universal language to probe life’s mysteries, all wrapped in wry wordplay and his own distinctly catchy rhythms and melodies, both in solo acoustic performance and fronting full electric band and multimedia experience Outta d’Ark.
In 2013 Noah was Musician-and-Songwriter-in-Residence at Art Kibbutz New York.
Appearing at countless International and American music festivals from the Tsfat Klezmer Festival, FODfest and The Big Up to Blues for Challah, the Hoot in the Park Jerusalem and Pink Moon, Noah was the founder and musical & artistic director of the AppleJam Music Festival Series in New York City. He has toured up and down north America, Europe from the UK to the Mediterranean, and Asia from Israel to the Peoples Republic of China & South Korea.
As a drummer and percussionist Noah has performed with international legends including the late Babatunde Olatunji and Shlomo Carlebach. Recent appearances include shows with Pey Dalid and members of Blood Sweat & Tears, The Cult, lespecial, The Klezmatics, The Fab Faux, Zion80, Galaxy Dynamite!, the KIND, Yehuda Green, Avi Kuntsler, Yom V’Lilah (Day & Night), HaOneh HaHameshit, Yehudah Green, MoshiachOi! & Oneg Semesh Band. In recognition of his reputation as a rhythmic powerhouse in jam, jazz, blues, funk, rock, klezmer, dance and world fusion music, Noah was signed as a Pro Artist Endorser by Silver Fox Percussion and Grover Pro Percussion.
Noah plays Silver Fox SF-515 drumsticks with Delrin tips, and uses Sonor Force Custom acoustic and Roland V-Pro electric drumkits, Sonor Global and LP hand drums, Martin, Hondo, Yamaha classical and vintage Fender guitars, and Keli’i koa tenor ukuleles.
