Israel Nash @ DC9 - 1/21/15

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.
