Noah Derksen Aims High with “Maybe Next Year”

Canadian Folk Music Award-winning artist, Noah Derksen, creates roots and Americana songs with the grounded nature of harsh Manitoba winters mixed with the failed optimism of the American Dream.

His new release, “Maybe Next Year,” blends hope, joy, and sadness, charting a diluted sense of optimism that Derksen experienced while prolonging a period of heartache. 

Inspired by staying up too late, drinking too much, and calling his ex, this wistful yet lively song meditates on the hope that maybe it’ll all magically work itself out. Derksen’s and Mackenzie Friesen’s earnest vocals join with uptempo guitar and gentle rhythms.
