Nathaniel Rateliff hails from Bay, Missouri. As Roy Kasten said in this week's preview, "The sound of small-town quietude and sly complexities percolating below a placid surface still defines the Denver songwriter's mostly spare, acoustic concept. With his ripe and worn baritone, pick-and-scratch guitar and feel for jazzy melodies, he gives depth to songs of intimate reveries and regret on this year's Rounder debut, In Memory of Loss." Fans of Bon Iver and Iron and Wine will definitely approve.
Ratelieff and fellow acoustic troubadour JBM will be at Off Broadway tonight starting at 9 p.m., and we have *four pairs* of tickets to give away. Leave your full name, a valid email address and why you want to go. I'll choose winners at 3 p.m. Good luck!
