Had a great conversation with Nate Allen about his new project Good Saint Nathanael. You can find our more about his new project @ http://hidenotruth.com/.
With his new project Good Saint Nathanael, Nate Allen is turning to face his demons leading with a rare, disarming vulnerability. On Hide No Truth (available on Feb. 1st), the harder Nate looks at himself in the mirror, the more humanity reveals its bitter, beautiful complexity.
The nine songs on Hide No Truth find Nate stripping back his sonic palette to reveal stark, memorable, acoustic songs full of detail and intention.
In what is a cathartic move towards self-choice, honest art and emotional health, Nate uses religious language to explore human vulnerability and his own broken Christian religious experience.
Faced with a choice between ignoring his past or leaving his faith and community, Good Saint Nathanael is a project seeking a 3rd path, one that lances the wounds, protests somberly, and grieves deeply while still refusing to give up.
Mike has a great conversation getting to know the relatively new contributor to Down The Line, Doug Peterson. Doug shares a bit of his faith journey, they discuses the idea of being post-evangelical, and of course they chat about music they dig including the new Lo Tom release.
