And It’s Still Alright
In support of an upcoming solo album, Nathaniel Rateliff returns to his early acoustic days with the ‘And It’s Still Alright’ tour. The show will span from Rateliff stripped back with just his voice and an acoustic guitar to the accompaniment of a full band. The set list will feature songs from his new album as well as his entire catalog. Preceding the emergence of Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Nathaniel released three albums and an ep; ‘Desire and Dissolving Men’ (2007), ‘In Memory of Loss’ (2010), ‘Falling Faster Than You Can Run’ (2013), and “Closer’ ep (2014). These records received critical acclaim:
“Pensive, Rousing, Stark, Eloquent…Cash Echoes.”—The New York Times
“We were blown away.”—Vanity Fair
“My Latest Obsession.”—Brooklyn Vegan
“Rateliff’s rich voice and his bandmates’ textured harmonies sound like long and comfortable conversations.”—Paste
Growing up in rural Missouri, Rateliff got his early music education from his family, who performed in the church band in which Rateliff played drums, and his father’s record collection. At 19, Rateliff moved to Denver where he worked night shifts at a bottle factory and a trucking company while testing out songs at open-mic nights. Rateliff’s 2010 album, In Memory of Loss, propelled him to the forefront of Denver’s tight-knit folk scene, with The New York Times dubbing him “a local folk pop hero” and launched his career as a touring musician.
Rateliff had loved soul music since he was a teenager and a set of demos he recorded in the early 2010’s gradually grew into Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats. Released in 2015 on the re- launched Stax Records, the band’s self-titled debut album was a breakout success—now certified Gold in the U.S., it has sold over a million records worldwide. Their sophomore album Tearing at the Seams was released in March 2018 to widespread critical acclaim and featured three singles that hit #1 at Triple A Radio (“You Worry Me,” “A Little Honey” and “Hey Mama”). Rateliff and the band have appeared on nearly every late-night television program and toured extensively worldwide, playing major festivals and selling out iconic venues including their hometown Red Rocks Amphitheater multiple times.
