Nathan Bell’s literary roots run deep.

What a year it’s been for Nathan Bell. He ended 2016 on a high after featuring as one of the Best Male Performers of the Year in the Readers’ Poll at the influential  AmericanaUK website.

In February he flew in for a double bill appearance with James McMurtry at Celtic Connections and stunned a capacity crowd into hushed silence. AmericanaUK, reviewer Paul Kerr said: ‘It was a raucous crowd that faced Bell when he bounced onto the stage but within minutes, he had them transfixed with barely a murmur to be heard, his confident delivery and wry humour demanding attention…Bell is the real deal – do yourself a favour and catch this true American troubadour. You won’t be disappointed.’

Nathan then released a new album Love>Fear (48 hours in traitorland) – a stark, acoustic
soundtrack for the times we are living in, that won him more attention on both sides of the Atlantic.

One of the first reviews to appear came from Tom Franks at Folkwords, who said: ‘It’s going to be huge,’ and just at that, it appeared at the Number 3 slot on the Euro Americana Chart.

He toured the UK again in November. Just look at the flyer here and see what promoters had to say
about that…

And, now, to round things off in prefect fashion, it was announced that he has been voted Best Male Artist in the 2017 Readers’ Poll at Americana UK.

With his latest album, I Don’t Do This for Love, I Do This for Love (the third instalment in a
potent trilogy that began with, 2011’s Black Crow Blue and continued with 2014’s Blood Like a River), he has created a song cycle that is both moving and timely.

The CD has picked up four and 5-star ratings on both sides of the Atlantic.

‘Gritty and authentic,’ wrote Martin Chilton in The Telegraph, awarding the record a Best of 2016
accolade, while Country Music People declared it was ‘powerful – excellent!’ Maverick magazine awarded the
album ‘stand-out’ status and said: ‘poetry is coursing through his veins,’ while BBC’s Ricky Ross told listeners it was
‘really, really special.’
