Noah Guthrie: YouTube Covers, Glee & Creative Patience
This week we’re joined by South Carolina based singer/songwriter Noah Guthrie. Noah’s had a really interesting journey so far – his cover of “Sexy and I Know It” went viral and led to features on NBC’s Today Show, Jay Leno’s Tonight Show, and Dancing With The Stars. He’s also opened concerts for Ed Sheeran, Cobra Starship and Selena Gomez, and in 2013, he released his debut album “Among The Wildest Things.” In 2015 he landed a feature role in Glee, starring as Roderick. Noah tells us all about his experiences with YouTube, what auditioning for Glee was like, and the advice he’d offer to his fellow musicians. Enjoy!
