Video Clip of The Week: Israel Nash, “Lucky Ones”

While comparisons will be immediately made between Israel Nash’s “Lucky Ones” and Neal Young’s “Harvest Moon,” I doubt that Nash would complain at all about being mentioned in the same sentence as one of the greatest American songwriters of all time.  The similarities are not just for Nash’s vocal delivery, but also for the song’s lush wistfulness and the really top-notch songwriting that includes a jaw-droppingly flawless instrumental arrangement and incredible word economy that tells you all you need to know about the kind of artist he is in under 4 minutes. Wow. High fives all around on this one.

Visually, we get to see Nash looking very much like a young Gregg Allman, as he explores the land on his ranch in the Texas Hill Country, recording the sounds of nature that were meticulously incorporated into various songs during the recording of his new album. It’s so fresh and so understated, you almost don’t even notice when it’s over. “Lucky Ones” can be found on Lifted, out July 27th, 2018 on Desert Folklore Music / Loose Music. Recommended if you like any of these artists: Neil Young, The Eagles, The Byrds, Joseph Arther, Gomez, The Sheepdogs.  Enjoy!
