Celebrated Americana singer/songwriter Israel Nash is gearing up to release his resplendent album Topaz on March 12. The follow-up to his 2018 release Lifted, Nash recorded the candid, textured album at Plum Creek Sound, his studio assembled from an old quonset hut near his home in the Texas Hill Country. Topaz marks the first album Nash has recorded mostly on his own, both taking his time and relishing his newfound access to immediacy, punching the red button moments after an idea hit.
Israel Nash, the Texas’ genre-bending rock ‘n’ roller, announces an extensive Summer and Fall North American tour in support of his new album, Lifted, out July 27th, 2018 via Desert Folklore Music/Thirty Tigers. Kicking off with a hometown album release show at Austin’s Scoot Inn on Friday, July 27th, Israel Nash and his band will bring their incendiary live show to over 25 cities across the country this summer and fall.
Dripping Springs, TX musician Israel Nash, has released a new song, “Sutherland,” via a Crowdraise campaign to benefit The Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence in honor of the Sutherland Springs, TX tragedy. Nash, a vocal supporter of responsible gun law reform, was deeply affected by the Texas shooting and wrote the new song in reflection of the latest American tragedy.
Israel Nash, about the campaign and song:
The other day I heard a startling statistic - over 200 people move to Austin every day. As a native Austinite, this doesn’t rattle me in any way… it just gives me a sense of unease for the future of my city. There’s a reason that droves of people are attracted enough to this energy to move here every day, but will too many people dilute that essence, that thing about Austin that gets into your bones? I don’t know.
