John McCabe – “Careless Noise”

John McCabe is a singer/songwriter and multi instrumentalist currently based out of Laguna Niguel, California. He has been writing, performing, and producing original music for nearly a decade. McCabe began work on his first EP titled “Flower Circle” in 2015 and officially released the EP in October of 2017. “Flower Circle” was recorded at Janky East Studios(Los Angeles) and was produced by John Kimbrough(Walt Mink, Teen Judge). The follow up single to the “Flower Circle” EP titled “April”, is a contagiously pleasant pop rock song that we featured HERE. McCabe plays all of the instruments and handles 100% of the vocal duties on his recordings, and has now begun to release music recorded and mixed in his home studio with his latest track “Careless Noise”.


“Careless Noise” begins with the upbeat and optimistic guitar driven flavor that McCabe does so well. The song immediately grasps a full sound with layers of chords and melodic leads driven forward by a foundation of tight drums. It takes a dramatic and thoughtful chord change into the first verse and McCabe’s original and personal vocal style takes over. His voice is both mellow and passionate. The directions he takes are constantly intriguing, patching together chord structures with intricate riffs and changes. The chorus has a heartwarming quality that gives it’s bright and joyful hook emotional depth. Lyrically he tells stories and thoughts from his own life that anyone can find a connection to. During a poignant drop to a bridge section, he cuts to ½ time giving the essence of a meaningful anthem to the familiar tone of the song before revving back up into the memorable chorus. McCabe once again hits many high notes and thoughtful passages while maintaining a well-rounded musical sound.
