Nathaniel Rateliff

When you listen to Nathaniel Rateliff’s latest LP, In Memory of Loss, you hear years of struggle combined with achingly honest lyrics that mix with the sound of traditional country and folk. While his wistful vocals envelop the listener completely, Rateliff has said the album was written to woo a woman. A woman, he says, he ultimately married. Currently on tour, Rateliff stopped by the KXT studio to play a few songs during the KXT Afternoon Show with Joe Kozera.
