Over the past few years, Israel Nash has been building a solid catalog of cosmic folk and country from his home-base in Dripping Springs, Texas, and now he’s taking the show on the road. We sat down with Nash before his recent stop in Washington DC to talk about his most recent album Lifted, the power of recognizing the beauty of nature, and how our connection to each other is the key to building a better world.
Over the past few years, Israel Nash has been building a solid catalog of cosmic folk and country from his home-base in Dripping Springs, Texas, and his, ahem, uplifting new LP Lifted is the latest product of his time in the proverbial desert. PLUS we’re sitting down with Joachim Cooder to talk about his latest EP, Fuschia Machu Picchu!
On our latest podcast, soul/jazz polymath Kadhja Bonet is back with the follow up to her remarkable 2016 debut, The Visitor, and the more things have changed, the more they have stayed the same. Bursting with the uniquely impossible smoothness and impeccable sophistication that defined The Visitor, Childqueen is a singular that mood feels as fresh as it does timeless. Special guest Marcus J. Moore (Senior Editor, Bandcamp) joins us to journey through this latest weird and wonderful that Bonet has shared.
PLUS! Israel Nash is back with some potent good vibes, and we've got the first single of off his upcoming LP for you to get lost in!
The US may finally be catching on to Israel Nash. For an artist so thoroughly steeped in Americana – born and raised in the heartland of Missouri and now living in Dripping Springs, Texas (a small town which proudly bills itself as the “Gateway to Hill Country”) – success in Europe has proven easier to find. His second album, Barn Doors and Concrete Floors, took the number one spot on the Euro Americana Chart in 2011, and his third (and current) album, Rain Plans, was released overseas nearly a year before getting an American release.
In fact, as he noted early in the performance, Wednesday’s show at DC9 was his first headlining show in Washington, DC.
