"New" Artist of the Month for June 2023


Noah Kahan grew up in Strafford, Vermont, and began writing songs at 8 years old. Kahan deferred his admission to Tulane University to pursue his developing music career. He signed with Republic Records in 2016 and released his first single, “Young Blood,” in January 2017, which gained over 9 million streams.

Since then, Kahan has released 3 albums and 2 EPs. On July 8, 2022, Kahan announced a U.S. tour for the fall and released the single “Stick Season,” which became a fan favorite and gained immense popularity on TikTok. “Stick Season” has gained over 144 million streams on Spotify.

The album, Stick Season, released in October 2022, is meant to pay homage to the folk singers Kahan grew up listening to – Paul Simon, Cat Stevens, Hozier, and Mumford And Sons, to name a few.

Kahan is currently touring the U.S. and Canada.
