Noah Kahan Playing Sold Out Entry Show 10/20


I caught Noah Kahan in May when he opened up for George Ezra and I fell head over heels for the man. Come witness his sweet voice and charm when he headlines a SOLD OUT show on Saturday, October 20th at the 7th Street Entry. 

Good luck finding cell service in singer-songwriter Noah Kahan’s tiny hometown of Strafford, VT. Reception is nearly non-existent, but that doesn’t seem to bother the 1,000 residents that call this peaceful countryside hamlet home. The town’s sentiment of relishing in isolation is evident at the Kahan household, a 133 acre tree farm at the end of a steepdirt road, nestled in the rolling Vermont hills. The weather is harsh at times, idyllic at others, and a constant exercise in extremes. The seclusion provokes imagination but also imposes an earnestness that’s rooted in Noah’s music and perspective.

Of his songwriting and his surroundings, Kahan explains “My music plays on an introspective space. I’ve learned about the realities of being in the real world but being in the countryside holds a lot of nostalgia for me. I try to capture that. I’m just telling stories while being heartfelt.” Between tours with Ben Folds, Milky Chance, Anderson East, and The Strumbellas, Noah continued bringing his music around the world in 2017. With each gig and song, his own story only got bigger. “I want to focus on the struggles that regular people go through,” he leaves off. “My music is like a reminder that you don’t have to feel alone and there’s somebody who understands you. That’s what I want to share.”

Dean Lewis will be opening up for Noah. On Dean Lewis’s latest single, “Be Alright” for Island Records, he perfectly captures gut-wrenching heartbreak that comes with the hardships of a break-up. But while it deals candidly with anguish, the chorus swells with hope; a recognition that this pain is only temporary, with Lewis emotively singing, “It’s never easy to walk away/ Let her go/ it’ll be ok”.

This show is sold out. You know what they say– you snooze, you lose.
