Toledo’s Nathan Roberts has left behind his solo career and teamed up with Daniel and Joel Trzcinski to form Nathan Roberts & the New Birds. The band’s self-titled debut album is loaded with pop-Americana gems. Upon listening to the album for the first time, I immediately made the connection to Ryan Adams with a pinch of Top 40.
That’s not to say that every song is upbeat or fast paced, in fact some of the best ones may be the more subdued tracks. “Walk On” and “Until the End” are just two examples of slower, more Americana songs. These two songs in particular are filled to the brim with soul and heartfelt lyrics that are able to shine in thanks to the mellow tones.
The interview we did on 92.5 KISS FM is now available for you all to check out! We discuss the new album, our influences, and they give the song “Please Don’t” a spin.
