Last year's submission to NPR's Tiny Desk Concert (I had no available desk so I drew a wee desk on a piece of paper, if you're wondering what that drawing is). This song is "Modern Days," from my record The Old Illusions:

A very nice review of my January 10th Mercury Lounge show, from
Everynight Charley Crispo's Manhattan Beat:

"...At the Mercury Lounge tonight, Nathaniel Bellows proved to be a pensive songwriter, a fine finger-picking guitarist, and a muscular vocalist. Accompanying himself solely on an acoustic guitar with no effects, he followed the tradition of early folk singers, but with content that was often more cerebral and more mysterious. Much like his drawings, his poetic lyrics and his unadorned vocals revealed an artist who expressed himself subtly and unobtrusively. The rich artistic juices continue to flow in Bellows; his set consisted of songs from his album and songs that have never been recorded, including at least one that made its public debut tonight. Bellows proved that it is possible to write and perform peaceful, meditative music
in the midst of Mad City."

Music: Extremely honored that my record, "The Old Illusions," was #18 on George Wallace's 50 "personal favorites" list for 2016—particularly among such esteemed and inspiring company. Here's to more rigor and investment and art in 2017!

New Song

Back when the Presidential campaign began, I started this song. Since then, I've been chipping away at it, not sure what form it would take, or even if it would end up being about the campaign at all. However, after the election, the song came into focus, and I was able to finish it. Please click the painting I made (below) to hear the track--"A Hundred Ways"--
and to read the lyrics.
