Neil Nathan Celebrates a Successful Year with Birthday Extravaganza Show at Rockwood Music Hall January 14th

It’s been a fabulous year for Neil Nathan: he’s garnered comparisons to Cat Stevens, Jeff Tweedy, and Matthew Sweet for his debut LP, The Distance Calls. Toss in Rosario Dawson guest starring in his “California Run” video and it’s a sure bet that Nathan is one guy not complaining about being a year older. That’s why he’s celebrating with a big birthday show at the Rockwood Music Hall on January 14th.

Nathan has also been sharing his love of music videos by making a wide array of them this year. The “California Run” featuring Rosario Dawson and “When The Rain Falls” parallel videos; his Grindhouse/B Movie Inspired Album Trailer, the “So Much More” Get Out and Vote Video, a Dia De Los Muertos inspired Halloween video for his cover of Beethoven's Fur Elise, and most recently, a Christmas Charity video featuring a Santa Claus straight out of a David Lynch flick. His cover of ELO’s “Do Ya,” which was also featured on the Californication soundtrack, has been viewed 25,000 times on YouTube. Next up is the “Highways” video featuring an animated version of himself driving a flying ‘67 Corvette convertible; “Highways,” along with “California Run,” “When The Rain Falls,” “So Much More,” and “Do Ya” can be found on Nathan’s latest full-length, The Distance Calls which was released in August.
