Meet Israel Nash Before His Fort Collins Show

Israel Nash’s show at The Magic Rat is befitting of his intimate new album, Lifted. 

Along with his 2015 song “LA Lately”, you’ve been hearing The Colorado Sound play the new song from Israel Nash called “Rolling On”.  On Friday, October 19, Israel Nash is playing a FREE show at The Magic Rat inside the Elizabeth Hotel in Ft. Collins!  Opening will be Colorado Sound artist Kyle Emerson!

Even better than a free show, The Colorado Sound is giving you the chance to be part of a special, invite-only soundcheck party before the show!  If you’re chosen to join us, you’ll also get handed a copy of Israel’s just-released CD Lifted, one of the most gorgeously inspired albums we’ve heard this year. 

To get yourself entered, just email us!  The deadline to enter is this Sunday at 5pm. We’ll announce winners on Monday. (make sure you put “Lifted” in the subject line!)

With its luscious strings and horns, Lifted finds Nash in almost blissful reflection; with arrangements from members of Mercury Rev, Midlake, Kurt Vile, and others. 

“It was a simple message to myself, to not get stuck in thinking and the past,” Nash said in a release, citing the I Ching (The Book Of Changes) as a major influence on the album. 

“It’s too easy for us to worry about pretty much everything. I had been down and low for a bit and really had to sing and write those feelings away, give them to the moment and find a better self in the end.”

Nash’s sun-drenched single “Rolling On” can now be heard on The Colorado Sound.
