Nathaniel Rateliff, front man of Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats will play in a special virtual concert to benefit Beyond Hunger. His solo album, And It’s Still Alright, released in February of this year is very personal and serves as a reminder that we all go through hardship, but we must continue to find joy--- themes that certainly resonate during this time.
Rateliff’s range extends across genres, hitting Americana, rock, folk, R&B, pop, and soul. Preceding the emergence of Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Nathaniel released three albums and an EP; Desire and Dissolving Men (2007), In Memory of Loss (2010), Falling Faster Than You Can Run (2013) and the Closer EP (2014). The solo releases received critical praise—New York Times declared, “Pensive, Rousing, Stark, Eloquent…Cash Echoes.” When Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats formed their self-titled release in 2015 shared hit party songs like S.O.B. and I Need Never Get Old. They’ve played the late-night television circuit, toured worldwide, and performed at festivals like Coachella and Farm Aid.
Seven years later, Rateliff returns to his solo work in And It’s Still Alright. The album jogged something out of his restless subconscious, helping him explore unsteady personal terrain. The title track has a haunting grace, acceptance and wisdom. Time Stands is a hymn, a showstopper, a gift from beyond, a song that asks more questions than it answers, yet it’s anthemic in its scope and delivery.
