Noah Kahan's Mental Health Is In His Songs [via 'Depresh Mode with John Moe']

July 5th, 2023

You don't have to listen all that deeply into the song catalog of singer-songwriter Noah Kahan to hear mention of mental health themes. It's an important topic for Noah in his own life, which has involved struggles with depression, anxiety, and body dysmorphia. And because mental health is important in Noah's life, it shows up a lot in his intensely personal, vulnerable, and revealing music. Growing up in Vermont, Noah Kahan was heavily influenced by music and, especially, relatable lyrics penned by his favorite artists like Jason Mraz, Counting Crows, and Bon Iver.

He hoped his own work would reach people in as deep a way as those artists reached him. Well, his hopes have been answered as Noah's star has taken off. He's played venues like Red Rocks in Colorado and Radio City Music Hall in New York City and his songs, such as the huge hit "Stick Season" have been streamed hundreds of millions of times by listeners who appreciate his efforts.
