Letters From the Lost


Nowadays, since car-commercial placements are the new hit singles, you don’t want to be too much of anything—except maybe versatile. On his latest, this Vermont singer-songwriter mopes and strums like Ray LaMontagne (“Sometimes”), whoops and stomps like a Lumineer (“Sailor”), plays blues-pop riffs like John Mayer and even tries some Thom Yorke falsetto. No wonder he’s performed with everyone from Counting Crows to Katy Perry. For all the genre jumping, Nash is a troubadour at his core, and he’s most at home on atmospheric Americana cuts like “White Whale” and acoustic closer “Blame It All on the Wind.” Artsy and palatable, he’s liable to blow up—and sell a few sedans in the process.
