With the rise of Noah Kahan and the success of his Folk-pop sound, cemented by selling over 200,000 tickets to his headlining tour, there was never a doubt that he would inspire and influence up-and-coming artists in the same lane.
Wim Tapley, hailing from Athens, GA is a prime example. With the release of his single, Dry Eyes, Tapley showcases a smooth vocal tone and acoustic melodies. All the while, the smart and emotional writing that he’s showcased on this song, as well as a Tiktok of another song, led to a viral video, which very well could be his next release.
With an emphasis on performing live that the industry only sees in certain music cities around the US, Tapley, and his supporting band, The Cannons, are clearly doing things their own way and would be more than worthwhile to keep an eye on as he begins to garner more and more social media attention. A kid and his guitar, some might say you need more than that to be an artist now, but Wim Tapley would disagree.
