NATE BERGMAN plunges into the “Deep End” as UK dates begin 

9 min read

NATE BERGMAN, the Nashville by way of D.C. singer-songwriter, is a performer with a voice that transcends generations.

His powerful vocals create a timeless sound that weaves through the rich tapestry of Nashville’s musical heritage. Bergman‘s unique ability to infuse elements of country, rock, folk, and soul results in a sound that resonates with an increasingly diverse audience.

Fresh off a sold out show with influential post-hardcore group Thursday in London last week, today NATE BERGMAN slows time down with reflective, emotional new single “Deep End.”

Nate sings and plays guitar on the acoustic track, with bass duties competently handled by The Raconteurs‘ Jack Lawrence. Captured in one take live to 2-inch tape, with no digital editing, it was produced by Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes, Margo Price) and Nate at The Bomb Shelter studio in Nashville.

Nate shares, “The song is about facing the consequences of diving head-first into any risky situation in life. Whether it’s the gamble of a new relationship, moving to a new city, or pursuing your dreams in any fashion. It’s about the results of things not going as planned. Getting caught up in the potential future of that situation and having it not work out. That’s such a ubiquitous part of the human experience. Things eventually always get better, but the song’s vibe is about sitting at the rock bottom and realising you’re too deep to turn back.”

First introduced to UK audiences as the frontman of reggae-influenced rock act LIONIZE, in recent years NATE BERGMAN has trailblazed a new path as an solo artist embracing Americana. Anchored in Nashville’s vibrant music scene, Bergman’s journey began with a passion for storytelling through song. His live performances are a testament to his exceptional talent, marked by a magnetic stage presence that captivates audiences wherever he sings.

The renowned musician will perform at the very popular 2000Trees Festival this weekend and rejoins his good friend, fast rising US star AMIGO THE DEVIL, as special guest for a string of UK & Irish dates, starting tomorrow in Brighton and concluding in Dublin on July 22.

Fans can also check out recently released, melancholic single “Wish I Was” with its retro gaming-inspired video. Again handling vocals and guitar himself, the track also features Jack Lawrence (The Raconteurs) on bass, Megan Coleman (Jenny Lewis) on drums, and Jo Schornikow (Phosphorescent) on Hammond B3 and piano.

Wish I Was” came hot on the heels of a live cut of standalone single “War On The Working Class.” Recorded in Anaheim, California in 2023, stream that version on Spotify here. Earlier this year, NATE BERGMAN unveiled new track “Back To Nashville“, which was promptly voted ‘Track Of The Week’ by Classic Rock readers, as well as landing a prime slot on Planet Rock Radio‘s Stateside Playlist. Nate revealed, ‘Back To Nashville’ is a deeply personal story about starting over in the face of a great loss. Transitioning pain into strength and moving forward through pain and adversity. Everyone has a place like Nashville even if it’s a refuge in your own mind.” Fans can also watch a video for song, “If I Was,” shared in October.

Debut solo record Metaphysical Change, a blues-steeped, country-inflected album released via Velocity Records in 2022, is a profound exploration of transformation and self-discovery. Enriched by collaborations with musicians like Brit Turner (Blackberry Smoke), Frank Iero (My Chemical Romance), and Per Wiberg (Opeth) amongst noted others, Bergman‘s soul-stirring melodies and poignant lyrics guide listeners on an introspective journey through the human experience.
