Natureboy at Joe's Pub 9.16

Natureboy at Joe's Pub 9.16

Natureboy does that impossible thing that people cutting their teeth exclusively on kosher diets of classic rock n' roll will never be able to understand: re-imagining rock into something that sounds entirely new. Natureboy is the brainchild of Sara Kermanshahi, a first generation American of Iranian descent. None of this matters when you listen to the music of course, but it might help explain some of the magic that Natureboy brings.

On new record 'The Sweep,' Kermanshahi channels her border-crossing background toward ecstatic delivery, guiding her spirit through erupting waves of vocal intensity in tracks that cover all the bases, from 'Blow to the Head' to 'Head to Toe.' On this record (and especially when seen on stage), it's obvious Natureboy means every word. As proved by this artist, sometimes you only need to listen to someone outside your Spotify playlist to understand what's really possible for music. You can see her when she plays Joe's Pub on September 16th - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)
