                Hey Nathaniel Rateliff - I hope you see this some day. You're definitely "alright" man. With or without the Sweats, you make some beautiful music. Thanks for sharing it with us.

                          Mr. Fallon,

                          I might actually take back each thing I said about you. Thank you for playing music from my favorite "current" singer/composer.

                          Thank ya!

                              Me encanta su trabajo en solitario y su trabajo con los night sweats es igual de bueno. Brilliant!

                                So glad he did this album. I literally can not overplay any of his songs... what a breath of fresh air in the music industry. Very special person right there!

                                  Neat to see some members of the Night Sweats playing here. Could pick out Mark Shusterman on keys and backing vocals, Joseph Pope on bass, and Luke Mossman on guitar.

                                                      My fiance has the biggest man crush on Nathaniel. His songs have helped him through a lot of terrible things. There's quite a few songs by Nathaniel that he wants to play at our wedding. Better yet, Mr. Rateliff, would you just come sing at our wedding??? 😂

                                                          After he sings “it’s still alright” at the end and closes his eyes...😢

                                                            Great song. Again. Looks like it's still Mark Shusterman, Joseph Pope, and Luke Mossman backing him up...not sure about the others.
