Israel Nash January 2019 UK Tour Preview

We’ve barely scratched the surface of what’s in store for 2019 and already we’re going to be treated to what surely will be one of the tours of the year. Coming to the UK from Texas will be the spellbinding Israel Nash following the release of his most recent, critically acclaimed album, ‘Lifted’, which has to be one of the albums of 2018.

Having been completely mesmerised by his 2013 album, ‘Rain Plans’, Israel Nash’s blend of dreamy, Americana Psych/Rock has been a constant on my playlist ever since, seemingly fitting for a multitude of moods that human nature conjures up. The album, ‘Lifted’, follows the same blueprint as his back catalogue, hypnotising listeners with a wonderfully charming vocal that’s mixed with delectable Southern inspired guitar work that effortlessly whisks fans away to a fantasy realm that’s buried deep within their soul.

The music he writes is sheer perfection, reminiscent of Neil Young at his colossal best in many cases, and with the way his career is shaping up, he could be held in equally high esteem – he is that damn good! It’s rare to find an artist that delivers on every track of an album these days, let alone keeping that consistency up for multiple albums, but Nash is so compelling in his songwriting that every song seems to creep into your psyche with fluent ease.

Sonic Bandwagon will be in attendance at the Manchester gig at Deaf Institute to review the show, and we are also fortunate to be interviewing the band too. This is a gig not to be missed!
