Canadian singer/songwriter and his offbeat folk
Hailing from the landscapes of Edmonton, Alberta Canada comes a humble story of a solo singer/songwriter and performer – Nathaniel Sutton. While predominantly delivering folk-based indie-rock, you’ll discover deeper splashes of alt-country, pop and EDM sensibilities with eclectic influences that parallel elements from artists like Folk Implosion and Beck.
Nathaniel Sutton (aka Hail Taxi) struck some inevitable fate when he was approached by Engineer Recordsback in 2005 (with him being a huge label fan and buying releases over the years) and was asked to submit some of his own material to their label staff. The intrigue of who took notice to his relentless dedication/purchases as a label fan, soon realized that Nathaniel was a musician himself and developed a bond with the label as an emerging artist. This relationship would eventually lead to the release of his debut album ‘Dramatic Scene’ in 2005.
Now, being in his early 30’s, Nathaniel Sutton returns to Engineer Records under his new moniker, Hail Taxi,and with his appropriately titled EP ‘Apart For So Long’. The 5 track offering contains vibes of familiarity yet foreignness and maturity that can only be heard to understand. With the prospect of strong connections, brilliantly written music and strong work ethics, Hail Taxi is a name that is becoming more recognisable by the day; with no intentions of stopping anytime soon.
