Nate Leavitt Releases New Music Video ‘Someone Send a Signal’
“Authentic: That’s the first word that comes to mind when describing Nate Leavitt. In the vein of artists like Butch Walker, Nathaniel Rateliff and Chris Stapleton, Nate stays true to his heart and Nashville roots on his latest EP, Someone Send a Signal, released earlier this year.”

Nate Leavitt cranks the amps, explores heavy memories on new EP
Relieve Me features a snarling electric guitar sound and ornery Leavitt solos that both come right out of the Neil Young playbook.”

Notes From Left of the Dial: Nate Leavitt and the Elevation ‘Someone Send a Signal’
“The song feels like some long-lost Neil Young or Whiskeytown track. But there’s a sense of ageless beauty to it that keeps it from feeling drawn to any one time or genre.”

First Listen: Nate Leavitt “Take Me Back”
“Leavitt is always able to inject that sense of yearning into his music, self-deprecating in a very balanced kind of a way where you can feel a man’s pain, desire and repentance. And man, that feeling feels good”

nate leavitt and the elevation are my jam
“Confession: I was initially drawn to Nate Leavitt and the Elevation because they were likened to Jason Isbell. But I’m so glad I was because, to put it bluntly, I love them. There are serious similarities, and I’m digging it. Nate’s raspy voice is the perfect soundtrack to my extended snow cation, and it encapsulates the descriptor “ghost-folk” superbly.”

Live Review: Nate Leavitt at Standing Sun Winery, Buelton CA
“I was hooked with one of the first songs he played”
Hot Rod Cowgirl


From the past….

“Finally coming to terms with the songs in his heart, Leavitt has crafted an utterly amazing debut album in, You, Me and The Silence. It’s a near-masterpiece of emotive storytelling and gentile grace. The more I have listened to the songs off this record, the more I have fallen for them – and you will too. These songs are mesmerizing.”
Ryan Spaulding – Ryan’s Smashing Life

Magnet Magazine’s MP3 at 3PM for the track “You, Me and the Silence”

“Too much summer in your summer? Add a little of fall’s regret and winter’s darkness with Nate Leavitt’s “You, Me and the Silence.” Chiefly known as a guitar ripper in Parlour Bells and OldJack, Leavitt shows off his singer-songwriter chops with a set of country-folk ballads and lonely Americana.”
Jed GottliebThe Boston Herald

“With Parlour Bells and Oldjack, Nate Leavitt is one of Boston’s best guitarists. Now he’s got solo mojo.”
Michael MarottaVanyland

“Try to keep yourself from weeping quietly in your cubicle at work – these songs are beautiful but they’ll sock you in the gut.”
Jed GottliebThe Boston Herald

“The sound that Leavitt has found on You, Me and the Silence strays from that of the previous bands he has worked with, and seems more to draw inspiration from contemporary country music in the vein of Jason Isbell.”
EricMaimed & Tamed

“There is a deep amount of heart, sorrow and persistence in this man’s songs. He is a songwriter after my own heart, writes about the darkest of human emotion that some folks are just plain afraid to touch on. These songs make me feel something, which is what music is supposed to do.”
Red Line Roots

“I’d hear people say that Nate Leavitt was Boston’s secret weapon. The secret has been out for quite some time, so we can stop calling him that. I’d say that in the rock and roll Cold War with other cities, Nate Leavitt is our nuclear deterrent.”
Richard Bouchard – Good & Nice Promo

“Effectively reflecting his affinity for the softer sounds of singer-songwriter folk and alt-country of the Ryan Adams (circa “Heartbreaker’’) variety…Inference is an emotionally stark, bare-bones affair that puts his plainspoken, plaintive voice squarely front and center.”
Jonathan Perry – The Boston Globe

“Nate Leavitt’s solo debut packs a lot of power—subtle, ghostly, chill-the-flesh-off-your-bones power. Which says a lot, considering this is a folk album.”
Alex Schab – The Weekly Dig

“Leavitt is a gifted soul who deserves this attention and more. Regardless of the name he plays under, most everything he touches turns to gold. Highly Recommended.”
Ryan Spaulding – Ryan’s Smashing Life
