Literate, multi-genre songwriting from an open-eyed poet; distinctive arrangements from an acknowledged guitar master; emotion-drenched singing from a human with heart.

Noah Zacharin


Noah Zacharin has been called “a stunning guitarist” (Holger Petersen, CBC), “a wonderful songwriter and performer” (Paul Mills, Borealis Records), and “a poet, a songwriter, a singer we have been waiting for” (Penny Lang). Minor 7th commented: “like Bruce Cockburn, Ry Cooder, and Bonnie Raitt, Noah Zacharin possesses a virtuoso command of the guitar…world-wise songwriting”.

Zacharin has released 7 CD’s of literate, well-crafted songs that know no barrier of genre: blues, folk, jazz, bluegrass, and country all are played with authority and authenticity. His works has been heard nationally on CBC and Radio-Canada, and—in addition to his own distinctive and sought-after acoustic and electric guitar work—features the best of Toronto’s jazz, pop, and roots players, as well as long-time Tom Waits alum Ralph Carney and Janis Joplin organist Kenny Pearson.

Noah Zacharin is also a prize-winning poet and translator.
