Album Notes
"It's a stone cold heart that can resist the soul-soothing grooves, meditative funk and "love heals" missive of Naomi and The Courteous Rudeboys. Their brand new LP, Beautiful Beings, is a triumphant amalgam of funk and soul, driven by a tight-knit instrumental ensemble replete with sexy bass lines and full-bodied percussion, and buoyed by the equal parts sass and sincerity of Naomi's agile vocals."
-Amanda Martinez - Good Times Weekly, CA

"With tracks like 'Betty Confetti' where vocals are reminiscent of Nelly Furtado, or the funky, bluesy strains of the wildly sensual 'Crazy Mama', Naomi and her band leave an indelible mark on your musical psyche."
-Chris Kelly - Crested Butte Weekly, CO

"Whenever music journalists talk about Naomi and the Courteous Rudeboys, they obsess over one thing in particular: Naomi's angelic, whiskey-soaked voice. And at the risk of being a complete lemming, that's exactly what I'm going to do.

There's something thoughtful, yet dangerous vibrating in the depths of Gongola's throat. When I was a young lad growing up on the Colorado prairie, I used to sit on the porch on warm, summer nights and wait for the first crack of lightning to rip apart the dark sky. Gongola's voice is the thunder that follows the lightning — sometimes low and rumbling, sometimes as sharp as a whip, but always demanding attention."
-Dale Bridges - Boulder Weekly, CO

"Naomi mixes Edie Brickell and India.Irie and her own amazing coastal meets mountain quality of sounds from the roots up. She is high and flying and pixie-like with the grounding of drummy and bassie. She is Ella, The Forest Queen of All Faes. She makes me happy. Silly. Smart. She makes me think. She is everything but Bling and I love it. Good music to play hard to. Wear combat boots to. Wrap up your hair to and just get dirty in the garden with."
-Mary Beth - Top 8 Goddess Music, Misplaced Mama, AZ
