Artist From New Hampshire Makes Billboard Charts – My Favorite New England Artist
Okay, this is one of my favorite artists of all time, but it's not just me. Kahan has been climbing the charts as of late, and putting New England folk music on the map.
Noah Kahan is only 26 years old and originally from Hanover, New Hampshire. After going to Hanover High School, he moved to Vermont, where he lives while not touring.
Why am I writing about him?
Well, for one, he is currently my favorite artist. He has a folky vibe to his music, and it is catching on nationwide.
His most recent accomplishment is a duet with Post Malone. Before surprising attendees at a Post Malone concert, Post Malone introduced Kahan as "one of the most talented f^$&*@g songwriters (he) ever had the pleasure of meeting."
Below is the song, which ranked #25 on the Billboard Top 100, called "Dial Drunk."
The 26-year-old sings numerous songs about New England, something I love the most about Noah Kahan.
He has a song titled Maine:
I wanna go
To Maine, ooh-ooh, oh
I wanna go
To Maine, mm, GodTell me, lover
Once you've had a change of heart
'Cause we're no more than the fossils
On Crescent Beach State Park, and weUsed to sing along to church bells on Sundays
And can you even hear 'em from the subway now?
And I hope that we make you proud
'Cause this town's just an ocean now
One of his most popular songs, "Stick Season," is all about his lifestyle in Vermont, but also the time spent traveling between places.
“I’m speaking about the highs and the lows,” Kahan said according to an ABC News article. “And the truth is it’s always somewhere in the middle when you really go back,” he said regarding "home."
Below is one of my personal favorites, "Orange Juice."
Check out Noah Kahan.
He is one of my favorite artists EVER, he is from New Hampshire, he lived in Vermont for years, and he will surely be seen on the Billboard Top 100 for some time.
