Elwood’s Blues Breaker: Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats “S.O.B.”
Nathaniel Rateliff is one of those talents who seem to come out of nowhere. But once they show up, seems like they have always been with us. Born and raised in rural Missouri, Nathaniel taught himself the drums, guitar, and piano, moved to Denver as a teenager, and was soon writing his own songs, and earning himself a loyal following. You might put him in the sensitive singer songwriter mode, except for that amazing voice – Johnny Cash meets Howlin’ Wolf. A voice like that made it inevitable that he would find his true calling, and front his own band, with his own brand of rhythm and blues. Here are Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats. This is … S.O.B.
AIR DATES: October 3-4, 2015
