Reverend Nathan Brady Crain & Friends Blow It All
Classically trained in theatre and voice, the Reverend turned to blues, folk, Irish, and reluctant country to express his special brand of music. The Reverend employs guitar players of exquisite cross-genre ability to accompany his excellent vocals, and lyrical sensibility, working with Windham Hill acoustic jazz artist Sean Harkness, Bob Coons of the Jerry Garcia Band, and many others. The Reverend has shared the stage with Reid Genauer (Strangefolk), Spookie Daly Pride, MTV music licensing phenoms Motorplant, members of the Jerry Garcia Band, NYC East Village ragtime sensation Chris Lowe (Van Ronk ragtime) and more. Starting at parties, the Reverend has moved through restaurants and bars to be a regional player on the pub circuit by interspersing his more meaningful originals with humorous adult oriented originals, two of which ('The Legend...', and 'Mail Order Bride') are available on his album 'Blow It All'. The Reverend supplements his income by booking Jazz artists such as Gordon Stone, Sean Harkness, and for others such as The Chad Hollister Band, Aaron Flinn and Salad Days, Rick Redington and the Luv Machine, Lucy Chapin and former members of the Jerry Garcia Band.
