"Unique, original, complex. Hardcore, yet mellow with a sense of vulnerability. If we had to describe Notebook's music, I'm sure no one would hesitate to give these descriptions. Coming from a small town called Clayton, New Jersey, is eighteen-year old Notebook. He's a one-man band who began creating music at about seven years old. It's hard to place his sound into a single category as he yanks in influences from many variations of punk-rock, hip-hop, R&B, new-wave, neo-soul, and many other genres. Notebook's material makes for something completely mind-boggling, so dive right in and drown within the music." http:// www.notebooklives.com
