Noah is back! This time with his band!

Gearing up for a sixty-city college tour, bluesy-pop singer/songwriter, Noah Guthrie, is ready to take the U.S. by storm this Fall to promote the August 20th release of his debut album, Among the Wildest Things, produced by Rick Beato (NeedToBreathe, Trey Anastasio.) Often known for his unique covers on youtube, Noah is excited to give fans a taste of his own music.

Described as having a Pop/Americana sound blended with some soul, this nineteen-year old Southerner co-wrote the majority of his thirteen originals, along with his first single, Call Home, (out July 30th on iTunes.) He may have been called the male version of Adele or a mix of John Legend and Dave Matthews in the past, but as his social media username shows, there is Only 1 Noah.

Born and raised in South Carolina, Noah grew up in a home filled with music. Always singing around the house, Noah credits his dad for teaching him to learn his true voice and hone his gift. When he was fourteen, Noah received his first guitar and started writing songs. As a practiced musician on the bass, guitar, and trumpet by the time he was 13, everyone around him knew early on that he had an innate gift, and after his first performance in front of people at age 13, he was already dubbed an ‘old soul’ and true talent. One of his earlier written songs (at 16,) even made the album.

Noah has been steadily building a name for himself in the music business through his live performances and cover videos and currently has over 42.9 million views on youtube. In May of 2012, Noah experienced the explosion that comes from a viral video when his ultra unique and blues-filled version of LMFAO's "Sexy And I Know It" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vsvlsuLau5c) earned him more than 8 million views in less than a week (now at over 18 million views.) As a result of the internet-mania, Noah was featured on NBC's Today Show, Jay Leno's Tonight Show, and several U.S. and European Radio Stations, and covers of his version have been featured on the US version of The Voice and The X Factor UK.

Throughout his young career, Noah has opened for a variety of artists as his powerful soulful voice and beautifully written songs appeal to a wide range of audiences. He has led off concerts for Ed Sheeran, Neon Trees, Cobra Starship, Matisyahu, and Selena Gomez, but it was his performance opening up for Matt Nathanson at Sonoma State University that Noah marks as the most thrilling to date. While Noah’s live performances may be his favorite aspect of being a musician, over the course of the last year, while working on his first album, Noah has grown immensely as an artist. He worked in the studio with Matt Wertz, Gabe Dixon, Josiah Rosen (Augustana), Mher Filian (Selena Gomez), Isaac Hasson (Demi Lovato, Kris Allen, Hot Chelle Rae,) Amy Stroup, Ben Rector amongst others, and continues to collaborate, while simultaneously posting youtube covers.

As a huge fan of Bono and U2, Noah would love to follow in the footsteps of the Rock & Roll icon and find ways to give back through his music. He has previously performed in two Unicef benefit concerts and would love to continue to work with the organization, as well as contribute to the ONE campaign.

He is currently living in South Carolina with his family and is ready to hit the road this August.
