2019 was a big year for Melbourne folk artist Nathan Power with international appearances, two national tours and almost a hundred shows including slots at Yackandandah Folk Festival, Bendigo Blues, Nimbin Roots and Frankston Waterfront Festival.
Borrowing from the folk, blues and bluegrass worlds, Nathan’s music is dark and rich, combining childhood stories of growing up Africa with a cynical take on modern life. Think Leonard Cohen meets Lloyd Cole, wrapped in a toe-tapping bluegrass band including double bass, mandolin and guitar.
2020 sees the launch of Nathan’s second album, The Hopeful Clutter. Recorded over 2019, this album is a collection of musings on the world as it was, tied together with a folk feel.
