With Special Guest: Delta Spirit
Growing up in rural Missouri, Nathaniel Rateliff got his early music education from his family, who performed in the church band in which he played drums. 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 events.
Rateliff’s 2010 solo 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.” His debut as well as subsequent solo albums continued to receive critical acclaim while he continued to explore his sound. A set of rough demos recorded in 2013 pointed Rateliff in a new direction, and somewhere between Sam & Dave and The Band, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats was born.
The band’s self-titled debut album was a breakout success and their sophomore album, Tearing at the Seams, debuted in March 2018 to widespread critical acclaim as well. Last year, Rateliff released his first solo album in seven years, And It’s Still Alright, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s “Americana/Folk” char and resided at No. 1 on the Americana Albums Chart for eight consecutive weeks.
