With over 1 million social media followers and 70+ million YouTube views, it’s easy to see why Noah Guthrie, a rising Americana/Soul singer-songwriter, has become one of the most talked about viral sensations in years. While Noah continues to post covers on his YouTube channel, he has grown vastly as an artist with the creation of his second project set to release late summer ’16.
The highly anticipated debut single, Pardon Me (written by Guthrie and Matthew Perryman Jones), will release on all digital platforms Friday, June 10th. This is his first original release since his 2014 debut album, “Among The Wildest Things.”
The trenchant lyrics of Pardon Me demands the listeners to feel every bit of emotion Noah poured into this authentic work. The song seizes you with the eeriness of his voice while painting a picture of being mistreated by those you love. The polished songwriter and multi-instrumentalist has a way of transferring emotions effortlessly through his lyrics and unmatched vocal style.
About Noah Guthrie
In May of 2012, Noah experienced the explosion that comes with a viral video when his blues-filled version of LMFAO’s “Sexy And I Know It” earned him more than 8 million views in less than a week (now over 24 million views). As a result, Noah was featured on NBC’s Today Show, Jay Leno’s Tonight Show, Dancing With The Stars and several U.S. and European Radio Stations. Covers of his version have been featured on the U.S. version of The Voice and The X Factor.
After his national media exposure, Noah was invited to join the cast of the hit TV show Glee during the sixth and final season. He portrayed Roderick Meeks, a recurring character, who joins the New Directions glee club at William McKinley High School. It’s an experience that Noah recounts as an “amazing opportunity.”
Having just completed his second nearly sold out European tour and preparing to go back for a third tour in September, Noah continues to build a worldwide fan base. He has had the chance to open for Ed Sheeran, Neon Trees, Ben Rector, Cobra Starship, Matisyahu, Matt Nathanson and Selena Gomez. Noah has also worked with Matt Wertz, Gabe Dixon, Josiah Rosen (Augustana), Mher Filian (Selena Gomez), Matthew Perryman Jones, Isaac Hasson (Demi Lovato, Kris Allen, Hot Chelle Rae), Amy Stroup and Ben Rector among others.
This viral vocalist found fame covering chart-topping hits, however, it’s clear to see his skills are better put to use creating original music.
