Nate Norton is often accused of being a genre-bending bohemian, and the rumors are true. Dubbed "folk for the dark night of the soul", his music sticks to neither the rules or tradition when it comes to performing or writing his hauntingly gorgeous and potently poignant anthems. Nate fronts the high-energy, horn-powered, soul-and-funk-infused psychedelic rock'n'roll band Lounge on Fire, and even in the absence of the 7-piece outfit, he is able to capture the vigor of a big band as a solo act. Fans of Sufjan Stevens, Jose Gonzalez, Tom Waits, and Iron and Wine will find themselves in familiar territory. Nate's classical-meets-flamenco-inspired fingerstyle guitar riffs are passionately delivered with mechanical precision and articulation. They work in tandem with commanding vocals bellowing intensely crafted lyrics rife with themes of duality: anxiety and confidence, depression and rapture, mortality and permanence, longing and love. Few parts of the human experience are not mirrored, and vulnerability is rewarded with deliverance in these ballads.
