Nate Hall - A Great River

With A Great River, his first solo outing, Nate Hall has offered up one of the most emotionally draining and honest records so far this year. A mixture of echo-drenched electric guitars and mournful acoustic weave a tapestry of forlorn, melancholic American folk music that reaches right down into the soul as Nate's rich, deep voice recites his lamentations. The vast sadness captured is almost overwhelming, a sense of despair too deep that you just want to curl up in a corner and cry.

A Great River is sparse, raw, spur of the moment sketches, the sound of a man laying bare his fears and hopes in the old American way. This is not some meticulously planned record where every note is placed to perfection but a rough and genuine expression of his deepest thoughts and feelings. What Nate Hall has done here is produce a truly beautiful album that touches you, moves you in a way few can achieve – a reminder of what music is really all about.
