Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats, Missouri’s sensational Americana, R&B, and rock artists are bringing their signature sounds to the Ogden Theater
Nathaniel Rateliff was born in Germany in 1978 but grew up in Hermann (Missouri). He began his musical journey by learning to play the drums when he was 7 years old. As a teenager, he started to write his own songs and taught himself to play the guitar. After leading two bands, he released his debut solo album (In Memory of Loss) in 2010. His musical style spans soul, R&B, folk rock, indie folk (a style that arose in the 1990s - among musicians from indie rock scenes influenced by folk music - and is characterized by a blend of acoustic guitar melodies of traditional folk music with contemporary instrumentation), blues rock (a fusion genre combining elements of blues and rock, characterized by bluesy improvisation, the twelve bar blues, extended boogie jams typically focused on the electric guitar player, and often a heavier, riff oriented sound), and Americana. He started to write songs that needed a band so he recruited Andy Wild, Joseph Pope III, Mark Shusterman, Patrick Meese, and Wesley Watkins to form The Night Sweats.
Don’t miss your chance to see the artists led by a striking, emotive tenor vocalist and songwriter whose work runs the gamut from simple folk and Americana to roots rock and roll to vintage rhythm and blues!
