“Picara is able to masterfully mesh beauty with death” – Andre Lamar, Hockessin Community News
Hard Rock Piano. Tori Amos and Amanda Palmer in a horror movie. “Out of the ash / I rise with my red hair / and eat men like air.”
Music for thinking, feeling creatures who want to stare in the face the things that make most people look away. For button pushers, lovers of mythology, feminists, humanists, and seekers of light in the darkness.
Noelle Picara is a rock pianist, singer/songwriter, and CSA survivor from Wilmington, Delaware. She performs locally at venues such as WXPN’s World Cafe Live, The Legendary Dobbs, the Chris White Gallery, Film Brothers Co-Op, and at events such as the Ladybug Festival, Millienium Music, and Cape May’s Singer-Songwriter conference. She is currently promoting her new album, “My Own Frankenstein,” recorded at Seventh Wave Studios, featuring Brian Viglione on drums (Dresden Dolls, Violent Femmes). In 2014 she performed Tori Amos’ entire Little Earthquakes album as a benefit concert for SOAR (survivors of abuse in recovery).
In her other lives, Noelle has studied classical music, creative writing at the Kerouac School, lived in Germany for 7 years as an Air Force spouse, and taught thousands of students in the areas of music, theater, writing, and dance. She probably takes herself way too seriously. To make her laugh, please send her pictures of little children wearing mustaches.
