This is definitely an artist that you want to check out. I was intrigued from the first second I started watching this video on YouTube. Turn the lights down, the music up, and prepare to be goose-bumped.
Nathan Dale is a unique blend of Eels, Ours, and Jeff Buckley. (Three of my personal faves!) After listening to his 11-track record a couple times, it’s hard to pick a favorite. My instincts are saying “One Bad Day”, but maybe it’s because I’m a sucker for music videos as they add another dimension to the song.
I thoroughly enjoyed the slanderous-blasphemy portrayed lyrically in “Oh, Messiah”, so you definitely want to listen to that one a couple times. Unless, of course, you’re a slave to what the song’s about.
My rating: 8.3/10
Here’s my Q/A with Nathan:
Briefly introduce yourself, and the band.
My name is Nathan Dale. I live in Sacramento, CA. I’ve been playing guitar for over 20 years. I’ve played in bands for a lot of those 20 years. These days, I’m also doing the solo artist/singer-songwriter thing.
