Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats
- Soul country authenticity
Denver, Colorado. On the left are the Rocky Mountains, on the right is Route 70 heading for Kansas. The art of Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats is like an extraordinary spiritual experience. Their music is the expression of an America whose currents are rich and diversified, unlike present day cleavages, which see soul as black music, country as white music. Disregarding this sociocultural heresy, the folk songwriter and his band officiate with the solar energy of an Otis Redding at the marriage of both genres, burning the sacred flame of a faith that aims to heal the wounds of the soul.
