Back in February, we flew 3,000 miles across the Atlantic to catch a show from this guy and we'd do it again in a heartbeat!

We are absolutely delighted to welcome back Nathan Bell!

Nathan Bell has lived life. At 56, the wizened songwriter's weary voice bleeds experience. He's seen both sides of the coin—traveled the nomadic, bohemian path of the hard-luck troubadour, and found comfort and meaning in the stability of a family, a home and a near two-decade corporate gig. And now, with a guitar back in his hands where it should be, he's ready to tell the tale. But it's not just his own story he's after. It's a story of America, of the working classes—both blue and white collar.

I've been playing music since I was 12 (1972). The first album I bought myself was Neil Young's Harvest. I still think it is the greatest single album ever produced. 

My only guitar teacher and mentor was a man named John Bowie. John died in 1977 at the age of 27. I borrowed John's copy of The Rolling Stone's Let it Bleed for over a year. I still miss him. 

I learned to play blues by listening to Lightnin' Hopkins and Sonny Terry and Brownie McGee. 

I learned to write lyrics by reading Jack London, William Carlos Williams and Frank Herbert.
