LIGHT OUT FOR THE TERRITORY
LIGHT OUT FOR THE TERRITORY PRESS RELEASE (2003)
“Light Out For the Territory” is a debut album and combines many of the influences and musical explorations that sum up the first decade of this young musician’s career. Successfully combining the blues, rock, and jazz into a remarkable 17 song work it commands close attention by listeners, especially if they are going to hear all of the intricacy that went into the mix, the beautifully understated guitar & vocal work, and the admirable effort the production team gave in order to give proper weight and balance to the interesting mix of genres. Released in 2003 when Nathaniel Street-West was 23 years old, this means that the first decade of work reflected in this album began when he was 13. The extraordinary depth of character and feeling Street-West presents here as a songwriter, arranger, producer, singer, and guitarist indicate a prodigious talent at work.
