An Evening with Suzanne Vallie


NOON Projects is pleased to present an Evening with Suzanne Vallie as the next artist in our ongoing concert series.

Suzanne Vallie is a poet and songwriter. Her musical work mixes country-toned dreaminess and a beachy pace. Her dusky, homemade style nods to Karen Dalton and Vashti Bunyan.

Her album, Love Lives Where Rules Die, was released on Los Angeles based label Night Bloom.

After a hard spell, heartbroken and drifting, Suzanne Vallie aimed to make a driving record rich with sympathy, high romance, and dedicated to the magic of good-timing. Other themes on the album include dogs, surfers, and the supernatural.

In her live performances, Vallie is known for storytelling and improvised lyrics. Her performance at NOON Projects will be an intimate performance, with pieces from Love Lives Where Rules Die and new, previously unheard songs.

She lives between South Dakota and California.


Love Lives Where Rules Die review

"Once in a blue moon you hear a record so disarmly special that you want to demand people stop what they’re doing and listen. The warm and dusky sweep of Big Sur poet and songwriter Suzanne Vallie’s latest effortlessly carries it from start to finish and back around again. It’s a break-up record, and an impeccable example of soulful folk with shades of Karen Dalton, Vashti Bunyan, and down-home nods to Bob Dylan’s Nashville Skyline. But it’s Vallie’s own tone that carries it, from the slow pulse of Ocean Cliff Drive to the majestic Beauty From The Blue Country, on to the ramshackle singalong of High With You; a marriage of lyrical acuity and dulcet voice." ( five stars )

An Evening with Mary Lattimore


We are honored to present an intimate evening with musician Mary Lattimore. Mary will play a special set among the paintings of Daniel Long’s show Once I’ve Poured the Concrete. The paintings in the show were painted whilst listening to Lattimore’s album, Silver Ladders and we are honored to present a show in conversation together.

The show will have a maximum capacity of 45 people. There will be natural wines and fermented beverages available with snacks prepared by NOON Projects.

We hope you will join us for this special evening.

Mary Lattimore is a harpist and composer living in Los Angeles. She experiments with her Lyon and Healy Concert Grand harp and effects. Her solo debut, The Withdrawing Room, was released in 2013 on Desire Path Recordings. Lattimore also writes harp parts for songs and recordings, performing and recording with such great artists as Meg Baird, Thurston Moore, Sharon Van Etten, Jarvis Cocker, Kurt Vile, Steve Gunn, Ed Askew, and Fursaxa.

Her 2014 record Slant of Light with guitarist/synth player/producer Jeff Zeigler was released by Thrill Jockey, which was followed by the two collaborating on a track for Ghostly Swim 2. Mary and Jeff also composed a score to Philippe Garrel's 1968 experimental silent film Le Revelateur and debuted it in Marfa, Texas along with the film. Her debut solo record for Ghostly International, At The Dam, was recorded during stops along a road trip across America and released in March 2016. The next year, she compiled sounds from her past life in Philadelphia for a cassette tape titled Collected Pieces. Following an appearance at Moogfest, she was invited by Sigur Ros to perform at their festival, Norður og niður, in Iceland. During a break from those events, she was awarded a residency at the Headlands Center for the Arts in San Francisco, where she recorded Hundreds of Days.

Released in May 2018 to acclaim from the likes of NPR, Pitchfork, and The New Yorker, Hundreds of Days presented an expression of mystified gratitude for the natural world. She capped off the banner year — which included international tours with Iceage and Kurt Vile, a performance with Harold Budd at Big Ears Festival, and an appearance on Billboard’s New Age charts — with two collaborative albums released on Three Lobed Recordings, one with Meg Baird and the other with Mac McCaughan. In January 2019, she shared Hundreds of Days Remixes, a collection featuring reworks by Steve Moore, Jónsi, Julianna Barwick, Alex Somers, Paul Corley, and others.

Silver Ladders, her third LP on Ghostly, sees Lattimore arriving at her most confident work to date, expanding her style of instrumental storytelling with the help of producer and guitarist Neil Halstead (Slowdive, Mojave 3). Recorded in Halstead’s studio near an old English surf town just before lockdown, the songs on Silver Ladders reflect Lattimore’s vivid memories against the gloom and glimmer of the ocean.
