Nathaniel Rateliff, Carly Ritter 

When: Sun., May 18, 8 p.m. 2014
Price: $10-12
Nathaniel Rateliff has a booming voice and a broken heart. With them, at the crossroads of folk and forlorn country, he made Falling Faster Than You Can Run, a record that is—both in feeling and execution—naked, righteous, and alone. Besides Rateliff's marvelous, hair-raising vocal instrument and his strummed acoustic guitar, Falling Faster is relatively unadorned. But when the embellishments suddenly whoosh in, they do so to tremendous emotional effect. As Jon Pareles wrote in the New York Times of Rateliff and his producer, "their understanding of hand-played instruments in intimate spaces is meticulous and startling." A longtime pillar in his Denver home, Rateliff is renowned for live performance as well. With full band in tow, expect to ride that dynamic range even further—from the tops of the mountains, where the air is thin and whipping, then crashing deep into the cold, cold ground.
