In an in-depth conversation with Nash about the introspective third single from LiftedWide Open Country describes the song as, “dreamy and imaginative…Built around a shimmering guitar melody and ornate piano, “SpiritFalls” sweeps across like a gentle glide across a cloudless sky. The Cascades of familial harmony vocals are sweet to the taste with a sun-kissed warmth.”

 

For Nash, the song came to fruition alongside an existential realization. He explains, “‘SpiritFalls‘ is about being down, about those things and places that brings us to our knees. For me, this song was written from the harsh realization that we are so small, grains of sand on this big cosmic desert. That’s a tough reality, a place where the spirit falls hard, but once you get over that concept and yourself a bit, you can go more places than you ever knew. From the big sun in the sky all the way down here to the live oak trees, were not only connected, but ultimately dependent on the things around us. We might be small in this whole big picture, but we’re not meaningless, we’re here, all together, just open up the eyes and see the beauty that surrounds you.”

 

Nash has released two singles from Lifted, “Rolling On,” and “Lucky Ones,” both receiving critical acclaim and spotlights from the likes of Rolling Stone Country, Magnet Magazine, Culture Collide, Relix Magazine and more. Check out the video for “Lucky Ones“, and listen to “Rolling On”.

 

Lifted, a modern day hippie-spiritual, finds Nash continuing his tradition of creating a sonic landscape that is at once both vast and intimate – soaring and untamed at times, placid and sincerely personal at others. Accompanied by his longtime band, with arrangements by Jesse Chandler (Mercury Rev, Midlake), horns by members of Austin’s cumbia/funk compadre’s Grupo Fantasma, and strings from Kelsey Wilson and Sadie Wolf (Wild Child), Nash, alongside co-producer and engineer Ted Young (Kurt Vile, The Rolling Stones), presents an album that soars with meticulously crafted, multi-hued rock and psychedelia.

 

The album was recorded at Israel Nash’s studio, a Quonset hut structure called Plum Creek Sound at his home in Dripping Springs, Texas. During the process the studio became a sanctuary for Nash, a creative environment where he often reached a meditative state of escapism, creating a space where he could leave behind his downhearted feelings about the current political landscape and the bigger, existential questions those concerns raise.

 

Lifted, Israel Nash’s opus, is a fully realized, psychedelic, experimental, Americana rooted epic. By immersing oneself in Lifted, one can see Nash succeeds in a way that’s exquisite yet spiritually satisfying. Nash welcomes you to join him on his uplifting path – one he’s taken throughout his career, now continuing on a higher, imaginative plane.
