For many years Nathaniel Rateliff was an artist operating on the shadowy fringes of the music scene, trying to earn himself a living with delightful folk songs. But in 2015, when he exchanged that genre for robust blues rock topped with a heavy dose of soul and released the album Nathaniel Rateliff And The Night Sweats, he stepped from the twilight into the spotlight. Since then, he has toured the globe with his fantastic band, in order to win over both steamy, intimate clubs and immense and crowded festival fields. With Tearing At The Seams (2018), the 39-year-old American has again delivered a raw successor to his successful self-titled debut. With his mature voice, blues troubadour Rateliff gives an enthralling live show, showing his deepest emotions, meandering deliberations and heartaches that have been overcome. An absolute must for lovers of vintage rhythm & blues.
