Noah Gundersen's Music May Be Just What The Soul Doctor Ordered

Feb 14, 2018

The songs on "White Noise," the latest recording from Seattle singer, guitarist and songwriter Noah Gundersen, draw comparisons to Jackson Browne, Neil Young and Iron & Wine. Fellow Seattleite Nancy Wilson of Heart raved, in 2011: “Noah Gundersen is my favorite new singer-songwriter. Music like this will never become dated. His timeless songs are full of true humanity and longing. Just what the soul doctor ordered.”

At the ripe age of 28, Gundersen is eleven albums into a career of solo and band performances that often feature his family. He and seven siblings grew up in rural central Washington, home-schooled, religious and music-loving, and when he left for Seattle and a music career at eighteen, Gundersen wrote confessionally about abandoning his religious faith, but not his family. Listen to John Floridis's interview with Noah Gundersen on "Musician's Spotlight."
