    Nathan Angelo In the ever-changing landscape of modern pop, Nathan Angelo shines as a refreshing alternative, embracing the classic elements of popular music and celebrating the backbeat of American tradition. As the revival of music in the 60’s and 70’s brought together the heritage of the Great American songbook, the flair of jazz and heartache of the Delta blues, Nathan integrates these forms into his own music with great ease and delight. Like many Motown and Stax artists, Nathan’s musical craft was cultivated at a young age in the pews and platform of the church. It was there that he first witnessed the power music had to transport people beyond their present experiences. As a seasoned performer, Nathan has captivated audiences across the country with his tight band and high-spirited live show. Fans of Nathan Angelo recently rallied to fund his latest project on Kickstarter with totals reaching 10K over the projected goal. The new album began with a creative vision rooted in Nathan’s love of classic soul and r&b. His dream was to create an original record that brought listeners back to the infectious, danceable sounds of the era. Out of the Blue (Sept 2013) channels the vibe with success, featuring fresh, amusing songs with sounds reminiscent of Marvin Gaye, Jackson 5, Stevie Wonder and Otis Redding. In order to capture the energy of the live show, Nathan and his band spent 2 days in the world-famous Quad Studios in Nashville recording analog onto 2" tape. The project incorporates the signature “call and response” singing style common to Motown as well as the distinct orchestration: horn sections, strings, guitars, snaps, claps, tambourine and the unforgettable keys. To complete the aesthetic, Nathan’s breathtaking falsetto and honest, quirky and charming songwriting reach surprising new heights, satisfying listeners with an all-around experience of nostalgia, energy and emotion. The timeless and unique artistic direction of this record coupled with its phenomenal execution and production allow Out of the Blue to emerge as Nathan’s most exquisite work to date. Chris Ayer Ayer has played over 1000 shows in the US, UK & Europe, including a sold out headlining tour of the Netherlands. His songs have won him numerous awards and opportunities, including the John Lennon Award for Folk music in the John Lennon Songwriting Competition, a performing finalist in Merlefest's Chris Austin Songwriting Competition, and into the televised finals as a Top 3 artist out of 10,000+ bands for VH1/Republic Records' "Make A Band Famous" competition in June 2014. Beyond strictly folk music, Chris's music incorporates elements of pop, rock, roots & soul effortlessly to create a sound all his own.

    Hey Chris: I found my way to you through Cheryl Engelhardt. Enjoying all the uptempo music and positive messages in your lyrics. Your production work and mixes are outstanding. Nice surprises... final chord on This Is A Test and the fade back in at the end of Awake. Great picking and reserved vocal on In The Silence, ala James Taylor. Regards, Howard
