Bio: 
Seasons change. Places change. People change. As Noah Kahan changes, he casts those experiences onto songs likelight through a film projector. The Vermont singer pens songs straight from the heart and cracks jokes with his signature,self-deprecating sense of humor; he’s just changed in all of the right ways (and chronicled them via his songwriting).
After 5 years of critical acclaim, global touring, and numerous collaborations, Kahan sought an even purer style of writingand arrangement, a challenge from within to convey a vivid representation of what he loves, fears, and struggles with mostpassionately.
Through his journey from small town Vermont to global renown, he’s racked up over one billion streams, released two fulllength albums (Busyhead, 2019 and I Was / I Am, 2021) and a mid-pandemic EP (Cape Elizabeth, 2020). Noah hasremained prolific in 2022 with his single “Stick Season.” Rife with fluttering guitar melodies, inviting vocals, and homeyimagery of the Northeast on the verge of a change of seasons, the track represents another massive turning point for him.
“I wrote ‘Stick Season’ without knowing it would become, in my opinion, the most important song of my career,” he muses. “Itallowed me to finally cross over into the style of songwriting that I have loved my entire life, and the second I finished writingit, I felt a level of comfort and honesty that I had never previously felt since I began my journey in music. Being able to tell astory, and being able to relate it back to my home in New England in such an honest way, made me believe in myself again.”Fans reacted immediately and after performing the song live on social media, his followers relentlessly commenting aboutreleasing the song. Noah tested “Stick Season” live on tour to a rousing response, and a fan’s video of the momentcirculated quickly online. In an instant, Kahan’s relationship with his career was altered, his conviction for storytelling and apursuit of a more organic sound that aligned with the folk music of his upbringing had firmly arrived.
“Stick Season” paints one of his most arresting lyrical pictures yet, likening “feeling left behind and trapped” into thedecomposition of leaves on the ground with a disarmingly unfiltered final visual, “Now you’re tire tracks, and one pair ofshoes, and I’m split in half, but that’ll have to do.”
“It’s about seeing the other side of a place you thought was only beautiful,” he reveals. “As a relationship ends, some placeor someone you used to look back at so fondly quickly transforms into a memory of pain. The beauty of autumn foliage inVermont transforms into a brown and gray wasteland as we wait for the first snow. It is an unfortunate but necessarytransition, similar in so many ways to the transition from familiar lovers into heartbroken strangers. I like to look at the songas hopeful; winter will come, the snow will fall, melt, and eventually summer will be back in all its beauty. You will suffer,move on, and survive again. The last line speaks to the acknowledgement of the end: an inventory of the pieces left behindand an acceptance of the future.”
For as much as he may have changed, Noah’s goal stays the same.
“I still want to be able to connect to folks in the way I do and value when I listen to music,” he leaves off. “Change issomething you can learn from. It’s never too late to be a better person and to move forward. Always work on yourself andgive yourself a fucking break every once in a while. I hope listeners feel like there’s more to learn about me, just like I dowhen I listen to my favorite artists. I also hope they’re happy to stay along for the ride, because I’ve been so grateful forthem so far.”
