Drummer, composer, storyteller Sean Noonan describes himself as an 'Irish griot,’ one who collects tales, legends, and life stories over the course of his journeys and transforms them into the raw material that informs not only his drumming, but the entirety of the music he creates; as if Samuel Beckett were on drums.

In 1999 Sean Noonan first came to the public’s attention as the drummer of The HUB, one of several bands that emerged as the next generation of cutting edge music from the Brooklyn underground scene. Since the birth of his band Brewed by Noon, Noonan has created original musical concepts from Afro-Celtic Punk-Jazz to composing downtown avant-garde chamber music and improvising stories from his drum set.

June 2014, Noonan released Pavees Dance: There’s Always the Night, his 19th release since 1999 and is Sean Noonan's latest endeavor to cook up a distinctive brew of original compositions with a selection of lyrics by Noonan and the infamous singer, poet and visual artist Malcolm Mooney, who draws from his earlier years with Can to the present.
