Nate Currin is an artist and a storyteller. Having traveled to over 20 countries, toured with notable acts like Blues Traveler and Neon Trees, been featured on MTV and received a first ballot Grammy nomination, he retains his enigmatic drive to fly under the radar from time to time. It’s when watching him play an intimate coffeehouse gig that he’s tucked into a headlining U.S. tour that it clicks; Currin is chasing after the genuine human connection, one fan and one song at a time. Nate Currin now prepares to release a project over five years in the making that is unlike anything he’s ever put out, and far from most albums on the singer/songwriter, folk and pop rock charts. On August 6th, 2013 Currin will release an 18-song concept album titled The Pilgrim, his sophomore full length on Archaic Cannon Records. The Pilgrim breaks the rules of genre confinement for the simple sake of brilliant art.
The first video from the album is for the song “Vanity Fair”, and it visually feels like we have been transported back to 1678, existing in the catacombs beneath a Medieval city. The video is a sepia infused cornucopia of juggling thieves, depraved men, cheating wives and every kind of undesirable imaginable. Keeping them all entertained is the stoic and composed Currin, whose singular focus is a welcome bit of tranquility in this sea of questionable behavior. The video is a testament to the hard work and attention to detail that Nate has put into this labor of love for the past 5 years, and the payoff is tremendous! Click here for the full bio.
