Nathaniel Rateliff, Denver singer-songwriter extraordinaire, has had quite the year. He was recently signed to Rounder Records, a major independent label representing folk greats like Mary Chapin Carpenter and Robert Plant (who recently released a folk album, Band of Joy). He released his first album with Rounder, In Memory of Loss, to rave reviews. And now? Amazon.com recently featured Memory of Loss as one of the “Outstanding 2010 Albums You May Have Missed.” Our congratulations, Nathaniel!
