Nathan Cavaleri will take to the stage in The Brewery at The Imperial Hotel Eumundi on Saturday 16 September, celebrating his new single Broken Lines and latest album ‘Miracles’.
Fans can expect a live performance, illustrating the depths of his career through songs and storytelling, whilst powerfully matching the signature themes of overcoming adversity through courage and authenticity.
Cavaleri’s new album ‘Miracles’ is an authentic and adventurous exploration in and beyond the blues and alternative rock realms. It dives headfirst into fresh elements of alternative rock, psych blues, surf rock melodics, funk and swagger alongside Cavaleri’s effortlessly smooth vocals and knock-your-socks-off guitarwork. It’s an irresistible collection of songs to soundtrack life, love and everything in between.
Cavaleri wrote, recorded and mixed the album himself, documenting the entire creative process via the interactive livestreaming service, Twitch, accumulating 2 million live viewers throughout the process.
Stepping beyond comfort zones and expectations at every turn, Cavaleri says releasing the new album tested his connection to inner truth.
“The courage it took to create this album has been like no other. All songs pulled, ripped, cried, laughed and loved from the depths of my emotional dwellings; I had to face my creative insecurities head on and challenge all aspects of the past that attempted to block the flow of authentic expression,” says Nathan.
Cavaleri grew up in the spotlight, known as the child prodigy guitarist who beat leukaemia and who, at the age of 12 found himself the centre of a bidding war between the labels of Michael Jackson, Prince and Madonna. By 16, he’d toured with B.B. King as his guest, and played at the Kennedy Centre in front of The Clintons with Etta James and Bonnie Raitt.
After experiencing the depths of adulthood adversities, battling paralysing anxiety and insomnia, his cathartic connection with music has helped him through. Since his return to stages and studios following many years away, Cavaleri has cultivating who he is at his core – as an artist, a musician and, most importantly, a person. And it’s this discovery and reigniting of passion that most ardently burns on ‘Miracles’
As Cavaleri says, “After three years of touring since getting beyond mental health challenges, I can finally trust myself on the road. The stage is now the remedy not the challenge. The gig is now an anchor of love and presence that I get to experience with thousands around the country.”
“The Miracles tour has me staying true to the story-telling style performance introduced for my last album tour, but the show itself has inherited an elevated level of intensity purely from the nature of the songs themselves. Staying strong with a scaled down yet extremely powerful and electric line up, the set gets spotlight intimate, as well as firing hot in a way that can’t be felt on a recording. And as much as I’ve ventured beyond the blues, I can’t not go back to my roots for a few five or twenty minute solos!,” he says.
Doors open at 7.30pm. 18+ show.
