On December 1st, 2017 I launched my debut single ‘Solstice’ from my upcoming EP ‘We Were Wild’.
A gentle folk song written in a freezing shed around the change of seasons, Solstice explores a friends doomed relationship.
I filmed and edited a video to highlight the music, you can view it here:
2017 ends on a high note, with the sold-out launch of Nathan Power’s debut single ‘Solstice’ and plays across PBS, 3RRR and Triple J. 2018 carries on the momentum with a 12 date national tour around the release of Nathan’s debut EP ‘We Were Wild’.
Tackling VIC, NSW and the ACT with a string of intimate shows in March and April, the ‘We Were Wild’ EP explores heartache, the stress of 21st century Millennialism and the occasional moments of happiness that happen in between. Expect some up-tempo numbers, a crowd sing-along and a couple of covers, most likely from Nick Drake, Paul Kelly or an obscure 1960s folk artist.
Borrowing inspiration from artists such as the Tallest Man on Earth, Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen, Nathan explores a love of folk music to communicate stories loosely based on life experiences. Armed with a parlour guitar and backed by a ragtag collection of instruments including double bass, drums, and the occasional three-part vocal harmony, this is music for contemplation and slow dancing.
A drummer in a previous life, Nathan Power spent years honing his craft playing 120+ shows a year across Australia in a variety of genres including funk/soul (The Marionettes, Paint The Town), blues (The New Savages, T.K Reeve) and country (Patrick Wilson and The Bare River Queens), before appearing from behind the drums with a desire to write songs and sing them for people.
