In the middle of a world tour in support of his sophomore album, "Falling Faster Than You Can Run," Hermann, Missouri native Nathaniel Rateliff recorded a session that validates why local talent should be given a good listen.

"Don't Get Too Close" showcases his sharp voice which rolls like waves as the lyrics come up to meet the echoing guitar. This is one of those songs where all of a sudden things change and right in the middle he delivers a louder, more bombastic sound which contrasts nicely with the quiet beginning and end. "Three Fingers" is a more pensive and thoughtful tune where the wisdom in his voice really shines through. "Still Trying" has a great line that repeats at the end, "this room is gonna cancel me out," which is a familiar situation for us all, perhaps.

Nathaniel Rateliff's songs are like little puzzles that are just waiting to be pondered over and enjoyed. Take a listen and see what you think.
