On their third LP Lost & Found Portland, OR quintet The Noted deliver finely crafted, unpredictable pop rock that is both intellectually stimulating and eminently engaging. Started initially by primary songwriter Daniel Work, The Noted find inspiration throughout the last half-century of the FM landscape, lending their art an easy familiarity while still feeling very much of the moment. Featuring interwoven him and her vocals and a wonderful melodic rock band, Lost & Found offers honest songs set in a diverse, often cinematic, auditory environment.
In 2010, Work was inspired to create “a modern-day Fleetwood Mac”, with multiple writers and front people. “I found guitarist Jeff Koch, who really plays to the song” explains Work. “Next up was drummer Mike Snyder, and with the addition of John Dwyer on bass, The Noted was formed. Keeping true to my original band vision, Angela Baldino joined us to round out the group; and at once made this a cohesive musical project.”
The Noted’s 2013 debut LP At This Moment (2013), featuring a cameo from Grammy winning finger-style guitarist Doug Smith, was selected as “editor’s choice” on iTunes and lauded by Music Millennium as "full of well-crafted songs that could have easily fit on 70's rock radio but still have a contemporary freshness to them." Their follow-up release Not Far Away (2015) had music placed in the television show You, Me, and Her and received airplay from over 200 radio stations nationally.
In 2016 Work completed construction on a new recording studio, allowing the band the time to create something free from the typical constraints of schedule and budget. “We’ve spent the last four years tracking, retracing, listening and mixing this album,” says Work, “while playing live shows around the Pacific Northwest. It was the first time we’ve done the whole project (except mastering) in house.” Lost & Found is very much a “band” record – no studio musicians or outside guests; simply, The Noted.
Thematically, Lost & Found paints a broad portrait of life’s triumphs and tragedies – and sometimes wicked curve balls. “They are all true stories,” explains Work. “These songs are written from our own personal vantage point; yet I’m hopeful that they speak to the universal – we’re all in this together.” Buoyed by a pervasive sense of optimism, The Noted want listeners to “be yourself, don’t care what others think, and sing out loud!”
