Canadian indie-folk artist, Noble Son has released his new single, “Sad, Dumb, Lovesick Young Kid” from his upcoming album, Life Isn’t Fun.
The album was recorded at Afterlife Studios in Vancouver, BC – and is said to be his most ambitious work to date.

Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
Hi, Canadian Beats readers. I’m Noble Son, but my real-life name is Adam. I’m 5’10 with blue eyes and a slim build. When not writing ironic love songs or voicing commercials for breakfast sandwiches, I enjoy straightening objects in my home to avoid existential dread. 50% kidding.
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
I’ve erased my answer 5 times now…gotta commit. My music is, hopefully, equal parts honesty, humour and self-deprecation. Taking yourself serious enough to create something worth listening to, while not serious enough that it becomes masturbation. Perilous game.
Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
Well. You know. Not a ton of gigs on the horizon. Sigh. Looks like MRG’s Westward Festival in September might still be happening, though. Will depend. If you don’t mind hanging with me in my apartment, I’ll be doing an album release stream on Saturday, May 16th via Side Door Access.
As for my live show – I’m super manic on stage, for better or worse. I interact with the audience a lot. People who like my live show tend to really like it, people that hate it still have a hard time looking away.
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
Sad, Dumb, Lovesick Young Kid
Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so who are your current favourite Canadian bands/ artists?
Joel Plaskett’s new record “44” might be the best album of all time. Not joking.
I’m Jenna, and I am the founder and editor of Canadian Beats. I have had a strong love for Canadian music, which started many years ago. I have a passion for promoting these talented Canadian bands and artists, and that’s how Canadian Beats came to be. I am so proud of what it has become over the last few years, with many talented music lovers and writers coming together to spread the word of Canada’s music.
