Following a sold-out tour across North America, singer/songwriter Noah Kahan reveals the video for his latest single, “False Confidence,” which premiered earlier today via Billboard.com and on MTV Live and mtvU. The music video relives the story of Noah’s early days performing at those local Vermont open-mic nights in his hometown of Strafford, where crowds were virtually non-existent and his music was the only thing that would get him noticed – not the outfits, nor makeup, nor personality. In my February interview with Noah with Noah he mentioned having never performed outside of Vermont and New Hampshire until he was signed to his label, Republic Records, who immediately threw him on tour. This music video aptly and cleverly shows the “before,” as he was still an unknown.
Fun fact: the flannel Noah wears in the music video is the same one he wore during his sold-out Bowery Ballroom show this past October, which Early Bird was fortunate to cover. Check out photos from the show here:
