4Oct 1 – Nathaniel Rateliff
Bio from All Music: Nathaniel Rateliff is a striking, emotive tenor vocalist and songwriter whose work runs the gamut from simple folk and Americana to roots rock & roll to vintage rhythm & blues. He and his band the Night Sweats are based in Denver, Colorado. After fronting two earlier bands, Rateliff released a solo record on Rounder in 2010 entitled In Memory of Loss, as well as the independent offering Falling Faster Than You Can Run in 2013. Both records were acclaimed for their quiet, intensely personal songwriting and Americana sound. Rateliff had begun writing songs that required a band, so he formed the Night Sweats. Their rowdy retro sound was deeply influenced by vintage soul, R&B and gospel traditions, Van Morrison and the Band.
5Oct 10- H.E.R.
Three letters that need no explanation. Over the course of five years, singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist H.E.R. has had an incredible journey, punctuated with inspiring projects and accolades that have quickly ascended her to superstar status. But with any journey comes moments of reflection and absorbing everything that has transpired—from celebration to moments of uncertainty. With H.E.R.’s highly anticipated album Back of My Mind, she provides all of that and more, further solidifying her place as one of R&B’s young icons.
Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, H.E.R. honed her craft at a very young age. From hitting the legendary Apollo Theater stage to early TV stardom all before the age of 13, H.E.R. had both the music and the star power within her and was a force from the start. At 14, she signed her first record deal with MBK Entertainment/RCA Records, though it was in 2016 when she emerged in H.E.R. full form. “It’s been a long, long journey,” H.E.R. expresses, “with many, many ups.”
Coming off of her recent two SOLD OUT shows at the Hollywood Bowl, this is a show you don’t want to miss!
