Noah Kahan Performs “Stick Season” on SNL

I knew Noah Kahan would skyrocket to fame the second I heard him open for George Ezra on tour. It gives me a bit of a chuckle now thinking back to the Ezra audience’s short attention span. For those who see live music in Los Angeles, you know that the opening acts get very little respect. Noah killed it that night, and has continued to kill it.

If only I’d asked for an interview on his rise. See below for his performance of “Stick Season” on Saturday Night Live. And the next time you see your favorite artist perform — pay attention to his/her opening act.
