From the Promoter
In two short years, music quite literally carried 22-year-old singer, songwriter and artist Noah Kahan around the world—a long way from his native Strafford, VT (pop. 1,045) and the 133-acre tree farm where he resides. On the trip, the alternative troubadour notched an international hit in the form of “Hurt Somebody,” which racked up over 200 million global streams to date and went triple platinum in Australia and gold in Canada, Sweden, Norway, Netherlands, Switzerland and New Zealand. The song also peaked at #1 on the Top 40 radio charts in Australia for three weeks, making it the third most played song on the Australian airwaves in all of 2018 where Noah has become one of the most buzzworthy new acts. Meanwhile, his singles “Young Blood” and “False Confidence” also racked up millions of streams, as he sold out headline tours in North America, Europe, and the U.K. and hit the road with artists like George Ezra and Leon Bridges. Not to mention, he has garnered critical acclaim from Billboard, Stereogum, NYLON, Clash, Idolator, and more. In the midst of this whirlwind, Noah assembled his upcoming full-length debut album, Busyhead. The first single “Mess” illuminates his marked growth as a songwriter and storyteller by way of its biting lyrics and undeniable sing-a-long, underscoring a heartwarming and often hilarious portrait of hometown longing. Busyhead is set for release on June 14th.
