Noah Benardout in residency for July at Hard Rock Hollywood

Hard Rock is committed to recognizing and supporting emerging talent. Never has this been more prevalent than with the announcement of 17 year-old Noah Benardout’s residency for the month of July at Hard Rock Cafe Hollywood Blvd.

“Noah is an incredible talent that Hard Rock was lucky enough to discover last summer on the recommendation of famed rock photographer Robert Knight,” said Eileen Mercolino, Brand Marketing Manager, Hard Rock Cafe Hollywood. “We are super excited for Noah’s shows. He has already proved his value, selling out two previous shows here at the Hard Rock Hollywood Blvd and it was a natural choice for us to offer him a residency. This time though, we are pulling out all the stops and Noah’s July shows will be more of an event series that celebrate his talent, charities that he has chosen to endorse and other unique emerging artists that he has personally selected to support him “.

Noah Benardout’s residency will begin on Friday, July 6, 2012, with an Independence Day theme and culminate on Friday, July 27, 2012 with a party in honor of what would have been Jimi Hendrix’s 70th birthday. Support acts for the series include Black Vinyl (July 6th), Haddon Cord (July 13th), Michael Lemmo (July 20th), Chronolung (July 27th) and Brotherhood of the Guitar (July 27th).

Noah Benardout’s residency is sponsored in part by Fender, Guitar Center, Swinghouse, BandPage, Floyd’s 99 Barbershop, Bands Under The Radar, Kings of A&R and the Sunset Marquis.

About Noah Benardout

Noah Benardout is a 17 year-old singer-songwriter from Sherman Oaks, CA. Born in London, but raised here in Southern California, his undeniable talent may be related to his famous great great uncle, Irving Berlin! Noah is recognized as one of the best young guitarists in the world and a founding member artist of the Brotherhood of the Guitar endorsed by Fender Guitars and Guitar Center. Noah also plays piano and synth. Noah’s debut EP “What Will Be…Will Be Vol.1” was released last year and produced by Don Gehman (Mellencamp, Hootie & the Blowfish, Tracey Chapman). Two songs from the four track EP were selected by Bands Under The Radar for their Best of 2011 compilation album. In January of 2012, Kings of A&R (a top 10 trendsetting music blog) listed Noah as one of eight emerging artists to watch. A prolific writer at such a young age, Noah continues to hone his craft with jaw-dropping performances, most recently at Hotel Café, NAMM, South By South West, the Whisky A-GoGo and Live at Sunset Marquis. Noah is an endorsed artist for Guild Guitars, Fender, Korg Keyboards and JH Audio, and is working closely with the Fender Music Foundation for the promotion of music education to the under privileged. In March 2012, Noah released “We Battle” specifically written for proceeds to go to the Foundation. Even as an unsigned artist, through word of mouth, Noah’s website has amassed over half a million dedicated hits in under a year. All his music is currently downloadable for free and to date his music has been downloaded 86,702 times! For further information, visit
