When singer-songwriter Nathaniel Rateliff started to release albums and begin working the acoustic/folk music scene back in 2007, I’m sure he didn’t see his evolution into a dynamic soul music performer coming. That’s exactly what is happening now, due in large part to a triumphant performance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon several weeks ago, when he performed the song “S.O.B.” from his new album out on August 21st.

Last week, Seattle hip-hop duo Macklemore and Ryan Lewis released their first new song since their 2012 massive hit album, The Heist. Featuring singer and songwriter Ed Sheeran, who sings the chorus, “Growing Up” is poignant and simple in its production.
