  • Biography “Nathaniel Talbot’s high-register croon floats lightly over complex, plucky melodies and lucid tempos with an ethereal, ghostly vibe that meshes perfectly with the music’s forlorn, yet aggressive and ambitious, sound.” Willamette Week, Portland At the ripened age of 28, this Oregon-grown tunesmith is newly celebrating his 16-year anniversary of song-writing. With influences ranging from the traditional sounds of Kelly Joe Phelps, Doc Watson, and Gillian Welch to the more contemporary Iron and Wine, Sufjan Stevens and Elliott Smith, the music represent a unique synthesis of old-time picking and the indie here-and-now. Nathaniel combines furious, finger-style guitar work with thoughtful, melodic vocal lines to create a sonic experience that is truly fresh and memorable.
