After earning rave reviews opening for artists like The Low Anthem and The Tallest Man on Earth this spring, songwriter Nathaniel Rateliff is stepping out on his own for a headlining tour of the western United States. Rateliff has been on the road for the past several months performing songs off his debut album, In Memory of Loss (Rounder), which the New York Times described as “more existential than confessional, slinging images rather than stories, with hints of both Leonard Cohen and Dave Matthews.” Rateliff has been converting new fans at each stop. Of his recent performance at the Pabst Theater in Milwaukee, The Onion wrote, “Rateliff delivered spine-tingling and emotionally potent numbers like ‘You Should’ve Seen The Other Guy’ with delicate force.”
