Just seven years ago, Noah Guthrie was a high school junior, posting cover songs on YouTube from the bedroom of his South Carolina home. Now, the former GLEE star and social media phenom is about to release his sophomore album of original material, The Valley,
Guthrie recorded The Valley, with his older brother Ian, who doubles as co-producer, engineer and drummer, 'whatever I need him to do,' says Noah. He also used two of the musicians in his touring band bassist Phillip Conrad and guitarist Rhett Shull as well as keyboardist Rhett Huffman. Guthrie is set to hit the road in April for a European tour in Germany, Switzerland and Netherlands, where he has developed an impressive following.
The Valley encompasses all of Noah's many influences, from the loping country flavor of 'Love You Now' to the heartland rock of 'Razor Blade,' the gentle folk of ''Til It Thunders' and the Beatlesque closer, 'Mary.' His supple vocals can handle a variety of genres.
