New music! Here’s a cover of John Martyn’s song ‘Over The Hill’.
Nathan Power had a wild childhood, growing up in Yemen, Kenya and Pakistan. He almost got expelled from boarding school for brewing his own dandelion wine in his wardrobe. His family had two pet baboons and a golden eagle. It was all very wild.
There are no animals on Nathan’s debut EP ‘We Were Wild’. Instead, these songs use folk guitar, mandolin and cello to focus on a different kind of wildness – the kind that lives in wandering hearts caged in bad relationships and salaried desk jobs.
People can clearly relate. In 2017, Nathan sold out the launch of his debut single ‘Solstice’, which was played across PBS, 3RRR and Triple J. 2018 carries on the momentum with a 15 date national tour and a string of festivals.
If you’re into artists like the Tallest Man on Earth, Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen, you’ll be into Nathan Power.
