Nat Myers is a poet, first and foremost.
He is an artist, a renegade, a troubadour. He embodies tradition while simultaneously breathing new life into blues with every strum of his guitar, every note in song, every verse written.
Friday afternoon in Scottsdale at Dreamy Draw Festival was idyllic, as Nat perched himself upon a stool and sang to those who showed up early enough to bear witness.
Half covers, half ‘Yellow Peril’ and wholly his own, Myers commanded the stage for his hour at the Arizona festival . During his time, Nat proved himself to be a true bard - part storyteller, part performer.
Myers recounts a conversation with Willie Nelson about time and how important it was that we were sharing it with each other. There was an accountability for our time shared, which Nat made sure to hold tenderly throughout his set.
The blues move like a river, sometimes flowing together entirely, the show becoming more singular than a traditional set that's broken up by a particular song.
An enigmatic early afternoon set, Myers is a sight to behold, one who should be seen and cherished when the opportunity arises.
