NSTS Episode 204 - Singer Nelson Sobral
Add a subheading
Longtime NSTS listeners know that I love speaking with up-and-coming musical talent on the show. And I anticipate that country singer songwriter Nelson Sobral will be a well-known name fairly soon.
Nelson's imaginative with the instrumentation he utilizes in his country-inflected material, a nod to his sophisticated musical tastes - something he credits to his mother. We talk Crowes, Otis Redding, The Ronettes, Howling Wolf....and we see things very, very similarly.
Sobral's playlist (available in Spotify):
The Ronettes – Be My Baby
The Black Crowes – Sting Me
Willie Nelson – Can I Sleep in Your Arms
Otis Redding – I Love You More Than Words Can Say
Howlin’ Wolf – 300 lbs of Joy
