PERFORMING 'NOTHING TO SHOW FOR'
LIVE ON A MANHATTAN ROOFTOP
With the hustle of the Bowery below, in this second part on top of a beautiful rooftop location in Manhattan, we’re treated to another amazing performance from the Communion Austin to Boston tour. If you’ve watched our earlier episode from The Staves you will notice some familiar faces here.
Nathaniel Rateliff was the sole USA native joining the 3 other english acts on the road. A local folk hero in his hometown of Denver, Colorado, Nathaniel spent many years as a truck driver before taking to his true craft. When the tour rolled into NYC, Richie, Sammi and rest of the SSA crew were on hand to capture this performance.
On cameo slate duties, Ben Lovett (Mumford & Sons) set things into action. Playing a yet to be released track, this gentle bear who wears his heart on his sleeve, belted out a story from the soul. A quick pan around roof revealed just how easy it is to be drawn into his tender tunes.
We’ve been lucky enough to be immersed into this man’s music. We recommend you do the same. Check out the albums In Memory of Loss & Falling Faster Than You Can Run to hear more.
“This version of this song is so beautifully pure. It is a mainstay at our house. Thank you for this.”
