 Nat Baldwin (1 Albums, 8 Tracks)


New Hampshire-native Nat Baldwin is an experimental upright bassist and singer-songwriter who cut his teeth studying with free jazz legend Anthony Braxton. In addition to his three critically-acclaimed solo releases, Nat has collaborated on works with Extra Life, Vampire Weekend and is a long-time member of The Dirty Projectors. “Nat Baldwin’s upright bass is Joanna Newsom’s harp, Andrew Bird’s violin – a partner so indispensable, it’s a personal trait. Over a gorgeous bull-fiddle hum, he belts out these melismatic flourishes… This delivery is terrifically earnest, terrifyingly intimate, and terribly special.” – The Boston Phoenix “His musical imagination is expansive, while
his lack of pretense is admirable” – Pitchfork “The New Hampshire-native (and Anthony Braxton disciple) rains hyper-melodic chamber fire in melismatic, cinematic glory.” – RCRD LBL
