“I am thrilled to be releasing Black Blue Sky with 6 new original songs and compositions. Expressing my love for rock as well as acoustic songwriting, I give these songs generously with the intent they make a difference for people. Listening to a great song should make the great times we experience more joyous and exciting, the harder times more bearable filled with self-compassion. I want to thank my long-time producer Chris Cubeta and co-Producer Gary Atturio at Studio G in Williamsburg, NYC. They did extraordinary work in getting these songs recorded and ready for the world!” ~ Nathaniel Land
Land’s talents definitely come from a musical family – including being related to the Grateful Dead lore. After years performing and being a studio guitarist, Nathaniel stepped out to further develop his songwriting skills under the guidance of Nashville’s country-music-songwriting legend Hugh Prestwood, who has had artists, such as, Judy Collins, Randy Travis, Alison Krauss, Collin Raye, Shenandoah, Highway 101, Barbara Mandrell, Trisha Yearwood, Kathy Mattea, Jimmy Buffett and more record his songs.
Nathaniel Land checked in with Dianna for a live phone interview from New York this past Saturday (March 16th) to talk about his latest album release “Black Blue Sky” and where his songwriting styles and influences came from…. as well as… what inspirations encouraged him into some of his philanthropic work he does with special organizations that include the Amani Children’s Home in Karanga, Tanzania.
