Music: Nathaniel Rateliff - "Still Trying"

Nathaniel Rateliff
"Still Trying"



Nathaniel Rateliff is an Indie Folk artist, if you couldn't tell from his picture here:


His band was formerly known as Nathaniel Rateliff and The Wheel.  I always like the different names that people use for their band like "the wheel."  You figure there would only be a certain amount of names for a group of people but then I see something like "the wheel" and forget that you can just name than some random object.  The band is from Colorado and are playing a couple of shows there right now before heading overseas for a UK tour.

"Still Trying" is a beautiful song with an even more beautiful filming of it.  Whoever shot this is doing a helluva job over at the Mahogany Sessions, so keep up the good work guy/girl.  At the beginning, I kinda felt bad for the guy because it looks so freaking cold out and with the sun that low, it had to be relatively early in the morning too.  I guess that's the price you pay to make something worth watching sometimes.  Great passion in his voice.
