In their words: Our goal has always been to make music that we enjoy hearing and seeing. Beyond that, we’ve always been fans of bands that are able to toss together different musical traditions and streams of consciousness into one seamless (and at times hard to describe) musical gumbo. We’ve recently grown tired of playing cover-heavy sets and in the past six months have made an effort to place our original music front-and-center, which has been really gratifying.
On Nature: The Band: “Touching on all genres worth touching on, this talented three-piece outfit brings soul to all of their music; with hints of blues and jazz shining through their songs, which range from rock n’ roll, to alternative country to R&B… Good for dancing, good for bumping on a long drive, and great musicianship makes Nature an act worth checking out”. Musician (Zen Franklin) and writer Gary Flick
