Noah Gundersen

Noah Gundersen is an indie folk/rock singer-songwriter from Seattle, Washington.  Gundersen began his solo career in 2008, but didn’t gain much critical attention until the release of his first album with his former band The Courage in 2010.  Now firmly established in the mainstream, Gundersen’s music has been featured in hit TV shows like Sons of Anarchy and The Vampire Diaries. His latest album White Noise was released in September 2017 on Cooking Vinyl America, marking a shift away from his folk roots and more towards the rock world. Gundersen will embark on a North American tour in 2018.
