A man with hugely hidden depths, Rateliff has up until recently been recognized for his pensive, soulful folk songs. A self-taught musician from the tender age of seven (he learned to play the drums), he continued his musical education thoughout his teens by venturing into guitar, before writing his own music. His second album, In Memory of Loss, was produced by Brian Deck and was listed by Amazon as the "number-one album you might have missed" in 2010.
In 2015, he unleashed a brand new incarnation to the music work with his band, The Night Sweats. Takes on a more R'n'B sound with welcome blues influences, Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats burst onto the scene with their mega-hit single 'S.O.B.'
By upping the brass and embracing his gospel roots with backing band The Night Sweats, Rateliff produced one of the biggest albums of 2015, full of swaggering R&B anthems and confessional dance-a-longs, stating with Triple A Number 1 'S.O.B.' Lauded from London to New York, their live show is a thing of genius, and at this stage, unmissable!
