Twenty year old American songwriter, Noah Kahan, who hails from rural Strafford, Vermont (population 1,000), has released “Young Blood,” via Republic Records.
With a true gift for songcraft and storytelling honed during long winters in the serene expanse of his family’s 133 acre tree farm, Kahan’s lyrics brim with youthful wit and wisdom, recounting tales of teenage adventures and boyhood antics. His beautiful tenor, reminiscent of artists like Vance Joy and Ed Sheeran, tenderly trips along each verse, utterly pure and refreshingly unaffected.
“Young Blood,” is a letter of encouragement and advice to himself as he embarks on this new chapter, as he reminds himself to “be surprised, keep hungry.” Throughout unexpected challenges and new revelations, Kahan is staying true to his nature; questioning everything and enjoying the ride.
Brighten your day, and treat your ears to “Young Blood” by Noah Kahan:
