Noah Guthrie, Music to Our Ears
The first day we met Noah was when he came up for a visit to Lichty Guitars’ shop.We were immediately struck by two things – he is incredibly talented and he is a very nice person. We didn’t realize (though we suspected) that we would be saying … “We knew Noah when …”
When Noah came up to the studio he was as genuinely floored by our guitars as we were by his music. We’re excited that Noah is now paired up with a Lichty Guitar. Taking time to play each guitar we had in the studio, ultimately a Chechen OM Guitar stole his heart. Noah can be scene touring coast to coast and beyond with his trusty Lichty Guitar.
“I love my new Lichty guitar! Everything about it represents perfect craftsmanship, beauty, and unforgettable sound!” – Noah
It is an honor and a true pleasure to have Noah join the ranks of talented professional musicians who play Lichty Guitars. You might be able to catch Geoff Achison, Bonnie Raitt, Kimo Hussey and more with a Lichty in hand. We look forward to a great collaboration and some great times ahead!

Some background via Noah’s website …
Bluesy-pop singer/songwriter, Noah Guthrie, has been taking the U.S. by storm in 2014 to promote his debut album, Among the Wildest Things. Often known for his unique covers on youtube, Noah is excited to give fans a taste of his own music.
Described as having a Pop/Americana sound with soul, 20 year old Noah Guthrie co-wrote the majority of the thirteen original songs on his debut album, Among The Wildest Things, along with his first single, Call Home. He may have been called the male version of Adele or a mix of John Legend and Dave Matthews in the past, but as his social media username shows, there is Only 1 Noah.
Born and raised in South Carolina, Noah grew up in a home filled with music. Always singing around the house, Noah credits his dad for teaching him to learn his true voice and hone his gift. When he was fourteen, Noah received his first guitar and started writing songs. As a practiced musician on the bass, guitar, and trumpet by the time he was 13, everyone around him knew early on that he had an innate gift. One of his earliest written songs (at 16,) even made the album.
Noah has been steadily building a name for himself in the music business through his live performances and cover videos and currently has over 53 million views on youtube. In May of 2012, Noah experienced the explosion that comes with a viral video when his blues-filled version of LMFAO’s “Sexy And I Know It” earned him more than 8 million views in less than a week (now at over 22 million views). As a result, Noah was featured on NBC’s Today Show, Jay Leno’s Tonight Show, Dancing With The Stars, and several U.S. and European Radio Stations, and covers of his version have been featured on the US version of The Voice and The X Factor.
Throughout his young career, Noah has opened for a variety of artists as his powerful soulful voice and beautifully written songs appeal to a wide range of audiences. He has opened concerts for Ed Sheeran, Neon Trees, Ben Rector, Cobra Starship, Matisyahu, Matt Nathanson and Selena Gomez.
While Noah’s live performances may be his favorite aspect of being a musician, over the course of the last year, while working on his album, Noah has grown immensely as an artist. He has worked with Matt Wertz, Gabe Dixon, Josiah Rosen (Augustana), Mher Filian (Selena Gomez), Matthew Perryman Jones, Isaac Hasson (Demi Lovato, Kris Allen, Hot Chelle Rae,) Amy Stroup and Ben Rector among others, and continues to collaborate, while simultaneously posting youtube covers.
Touring and writing new music are at the top of Noah’s list for the coming year. He loves performing his music for live audiences and can’t wait to see what’s around the corner.
Add to this success track that he starred on the final season of GLEE to tremendous accolades. The list truly goes on and on.
