Noa Bursie
-Familiar Addiction- 
CD Review - By Bob Silvestri

One of Western New York's emerging artists the past few years has been Noa Bursie. From open mics, to singer song writer circles to solo and headlining gigs for national artists including Shawn Colvin and Los Lobos she has played them all. She has sharpened her song writing skills along the way and put to together a bouquet of them together on her second disc Familiar Addiction. An all star cast of local musicians back up Bursie including among others Jerry Livingston, John Bacon Jr., Ron LoCurto, Mary Ramsey, Jim Bohm and Buffalo Music Hall of Fame members Jim Whitford, Emile Latimer, Frank Grizanti, Ken Kaufmann and Wendell Rivera. The disc kicks off with "Sweet William" an infection number with Bursie's joyful singing along to a galloping drum best and singular guitar lines. "Weightless" and the haunting "I'll Never Tell" score bonus points as well as the up tempo "Altitudes", the title track "Familiar Addictions" and the country waltz time "Pilgrim's Progress". Familiar Addiction is an outstanding effort from Noa Bursie. For more information check out her website at www.noabursie.com
