In May Magen Tracy released her EP, Fiercely. I was honored to be asked to Produce her album and couldn’t be happier with the result. Jed Gottlieb of the Boston Herald wrote about our collaboration by saying, “His smart, hushed aesthetic pairs perfectly with her quiet, spacious ballads.”

Jed Gottlieb of the Boston Herald has been covering every night of the Rumble. Here’s what he had to say about our performance.

“Night five turned up the noise. Nate Leavitt Band turned down. He played his set: heart-slicing, soul-smashing, just damn, damn sad and bright diamonds of songs. When called for, he stepped on the pedal and soloed — oh, lordy, did he solo. But in the face of a Friday night, he strummed that acoustic slow and harmonized with Magen Tracy and Dan Nicklin. Speaking of Tracy and Nicklin, bonus points for her keys and his everything else. More bonus: They can sing, but Nate’s broken voice rose above them both.”

“The Nate Leavitt Band just gave one of the most gut wrenching Rumble sets I’ve ever seen. It was apparent something really special was happening by a few songs in. Nate was tugging on every heartstring in the room. The unassuming songs were brought to life with beautiful performances and exceptional dynamics. Damn, that was good.”
