Ever had one of those experiences where you’ve said, “Now that’s something different?”
Some find it freebasing off cliffs, some find it running with bulls, and some find it at Nathan Kaye’s intensely energetic, uplifting live show.He’s much more than your contemporary one man band, he’s a spellbinding singing, hilarious storytelling, adroit lapsteel slide guitar playing, funky Didge blowing, body-popping human beatbox freak with wit & spirit.
It’s like he’s chewed on blues, munched on funk, grabbed a handful of rock, sniffed up world roots, tinkered with your granddad’s old drum kit & then exhaled his own genre.It’s music that marries the earthy drive of John Butler and Ben Harper with the uplifting atmosphere of Michael Franti and Nahko Medicine For the People.
You may have seen him on the 44 date sold out national tour with Pete Murray, or supporting Birds of Tokyo to 15,000 people in Perth or supporting Wolfmother last year, but not only that, he acted a leading role in a full length Australian feature film, One Less God, an intense hostage terrorist drama (and, no, he’s not playing a Muslim terrorist!) based on one of the longest terrorist sieges in history to be released later this year.
Kaye’s energetic shows uplift & motivate crowds to embrace being alive & celebrate life’s gift. He’s funny, moving, got something relevant to say & he’s seriously good at multi-tasking on an impressive quiver of instruments, all whilst taking you on an inspiring musical journey…
It’s the best sweaty, dirty, sexy, good-vibed foot-stomp you’ll get from a one man show.
