When Victorian singer-songwriter @nathanseeckts released the single 'Old Blood' from his new album, The Heart of the City, it was clear the album itself would be special - and so it has proved. Seeckts has an incredible voice and an attention to detail in his lyrics that make for a rich listening experience. He's also incredibly knowledgeable about country music, as the host of ‘Last Night in Town’, a weekly radio program on Victorian community radio station 94.7 The Pulse that focuses on Americana and alt-country. I spoke to him recently. Melburnians, you can catch him this Saturday, 27 April, at the Labour in Vain Hotel in Fitzroy.
Q: Congratulations on the album, which is wonderful.
A: It's a nice feeling - a feeling I haven't had before. it's a bit unexpected. I didn't know whether I'd be in this position, to be honest. As a solo person you can do the EPs, but I didn't know when I'd be in a position where I could say, 'Yeah, I've got an album coming out,' let alone on vinyl and all the rest of it.
Q: And vinyl is a commitment, over and above everything else you need to do to put out an album these days. Why did you make that decision to do a vinyl release as well?
A: I'm a vinyl junkie, honestly. I probably spend a little bit too much of my money on records. But it's living in an age where the CD's on its last legs, maybe. I like the idea of having something in your hand while you're listening to music and you can read about where it was recorded and who was on that track.
