Noah Kahan - "Sink" (audio) (premiere)

by Sarah Zupko

5 May 2017

Vermont's Noah Kahan proves he is a folk pop artist to watch with his superb second single "Sink".

Noah Kahan has spent his life living in rural Vermont where his family owns a large tree farm. A life spent in such a setting lends the young artist a lovely pastoral feeling to his easy-going folk-pop. Just a few month ago Kahan released his debut single “Young Blood”, and it was a smash, racking up three million plays on Spotify alone.
Now Kahan is back with his latest single “Sink”, a catchy, affecting song with mellow acoustic vibes and Kahan’s stunning voice. That voice is a marvel with its thrilling falsetto and unique sound. Now Kahan is only 20 at this point. A voice this special is bound to mature into something even more magnificent. Discover for yourself at one of Kahan’s concerts (details below).
