Here’s what real people from all walks of life are saying about Doctor Noize.


  • Just finished listening to the CD. Brilliant. I love it. I want more. I was blown away by all the layers of sounds and just how incredibly slick and polished everything sounds. I love all the vocal performances you do along with the supporting characters. Janette rocks as Backbone. At the moment I think my favorite songs are “Don’t Monkey with My Heart” (because I'm a sucker for Beatlesque pop which you totally nailed) and "What My Robot Said" (I dig the fiddle, and I love the whole upbeat country vibe...very contagious.) You rock. I couldn't be more impressed...

  • My BFF was telling me all about this amazing presentation by Dr. Noize today at Redding School of Arts. And I was saying "Wait, wait, stop, I KNOW Cory!" So, how funny is that?

  • Thank you for coming to the school for teaching us how to record a song. I hope you become your dream. Sincerely, Dennis.

  • This truly imaginative project offers more than just fun music. Young listeners are treated to an interwoven story between tunes about a guitar-playing monkey named Phineas McBoof and his travels around the globe putting together the wildest band imaginable. With friends like Backbone the Octopus (the eight-legged drummer), the bass-playing Bottomus the Hip Hippopotomus, a yodeling lizard and even a robot, little tikes are sure to sing along with the catchy tunes. A particular nod goes to opera star Nathan Gunn performing the role of Placido Flamingo. Chris Isaak's guitarist, Hershel Yatovitz, lends his six-string skills as well. Pack your bananas and enjoy the ride!

  • There's a lot more to a children's CD than just the music itself... "The Ballad of Phineas McBoof," which chronicles the formation of a band, is full of characters whose stories "encourage kids to follow their muse." Doctor Noize... believes children find more meaning in something when it's attached to a figure they care about. "Every single character on the CD is somebody who decided to do his own thing despite the fact that people don't understand," he said.
