nathan angelo

I don't even remember how I stumbled upon this musician, Nathan Angelo...I imagine it was probably while I was hopping around iTunes. There is a place that says something to the tune of "people who bought this also bought" and it might have been because of Dave Barnes. Or a good friend recommended him. Either way, stumbled I did, and I am so so glad. Nathan is one of the musicians out there who in my opinion doesn't make music for the sake of pleasing the crowd, but rather he writes from the heart. His style and sound is refreshing in a world that mass produces pop, chews it up and spits it out, only to move on to the 'next big thing'. He's got soul and the boy can saaaang. He's worth a listen to....over and over.

I don't usually write about musicians here (except NEEDTOBREATHE...haha), but I am realizing more and more how much music is a part of who I am. Lyrics quite often feel like someone's taken a sneak peek into the innermost thoughts of my own heart and have exposed them through song. That's why I've begun to share songs here. That and I'd love to give a little attention to worthy musicians out there. Like Nathan Angelo. He also happens to be my first concert on my trip across the country in March. His new CD releases March 4 and he's having a CD release party the next day in the very same city I am flying into. As he told me via Twitter, "It's meant to be"...yes, indeed. He happens to be in my top 3 artists I want to see but have yet to. Happy. You bet I'll take pictures, and share all about it when I return. In the meantime, check out these two songs I've posted. They are previews from his upcoming album.

HOLY COW! That's an amazing song. I definitely am with you on wanting that song sung to...or at least dedicated to. Way to go finding him, I'll be looking for this song to upload down the road.
