‘Spotlight on a Song’
Well hold on to your socks music fans! Not sure which way to turn. I’ve got Cubs fever, the weekend, and music energy running through my veins.
Todays spotlight artist is so cool I’m not sure I can handle it! Talent beyond. But also talented in that he brings ‘fun’ into your listening experience. That spring in my step I notice every time I spin his record. And who doesn’t want a little bit of fun in their day? Wow!
Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats. Just his band name alone is cool! Rateliff is a singer-songwriter from Hermann, Missouri. Acclaimed for his folk-based, pensive songwriting, Rateliff has garnered attention with Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats, the soulful R&B combo he formed in 2013.
Rateliff learned to play the drums at age seven. As a young teenager, he taught himself guitar and began writing his own songs. At eighteen, Rateliff relocated to Denver for missionary work also releasing Desire and Dissolving Men on Public Service Records in 2007. May of 2010 Rateliff released In Memory of Loss, which captured the attention ofAmazon.com, listing his album as the number-one album you might have missed in 2010. Guess this is a good result of being forgotten!
All I can say is stop and take a listen. You will not be disappointed. And I’m willing to wager a little foot stomping, hand clapping moment will bring a smile to your face. Enjoy!
Strum a little…..
