Nathan Kaye | Sheoak Shack | Saturday

Part of the Australian blues and roots scene, Nathan Kaye is a globetrotting one-man band who thumps out his songs on slide guitar, slide-didge and electronic footdrums at festivals and bars, and has even been known to smash out five-hour sets in outback hotel rooms.

With his thundering roots-rock, sun-baked blues, hilarious tales and beatbox world groove, Nathan Kaye is much more than your contemporary one-man band. This LA-based Aussie is a roaring vocalist, ball-tearing lapsteel slide-guitar player, funky didge blower and body-popping, human beatbox freak with wit and spirit. Think John Butler on pills, Michael Franti on ’shrooms and The Umbilical Brothers on fire.

NK dances between lap steel slide guitar, 12-string and 6-string acoustic, didgeridoo, electronic drum kit and beatboxing, interweaving catchy hooks, socio-enviro-conscious lyrics and hilarious storytelling. Whether in a sea of fans on the festival circuit at Glastonbury, Edinburgh Fringe or Lightning In a Bottle (USA), or in the grassroots venues of regional Australia, Nathan inspires sweat to drip and hearts to open.

Kaye’s music will draw you in. He’ll make you think, make you laugh and make you move. It’s the best sweaty, dirty, sexy, good-vibed foot-stomp you’ll get from one man.

You can catch up with Nathan at the Sheoak Shack on Saturday.
