Seattle native Noah Gundersen is slowly, but surely, capturing the hearts of his listeners by wearing his own on his sleeve in his uninhibited songwriting.

His new release, "Ledges," his first full-length album after three EPs, is making its way to the top of the iTunes singer-songwriter charts. His shorter works are no less demonstrative of his talent, this just happens to be his first body of work to travel so quickly across the airwaves.

Gundersen performed three popular tracks off the new album, along with his sister Abby, who plays violin and sings harmony. "Boathouse," is the most upbeat song in the set, but it takes on more of a dramatic tone in this live performance without the backing of his full band. Yet, the family dynamic in the vocals is so strong that nothing feels amiss.

"Isaiah," feels haunting and bare, with Abby's lamenting violin on the chorus and her soprano harmony coming and going during climactic lyrics like, "I'm the reason you're guilty in another man's arms."

Similarly, "Dying Now," is slow-burning but less heartbreaking. This tune is a real treat, as we hear Abby sing solo for the first time. Her pure vocal tone makes the song feel less damaged, which might explain why the two create such an electric pair.
