Q&A with Nathan Ball

What are you listening to at the moment?

I'm loving the Ten Fé album, it's an incredible debut from those boys.The National and the War on Drugs are always my go to albums for me too.

What are your plans for 2017?

I'm doing loads of writing at the moment which I'm really enjoying, it's pretty addictive stuff!

We're headlining Omeara on 15 March and just starting to book in the festivals, so an exciting year ahead.

What was the first gig you ever played and what’s been the best so far?

I remember playing at The Fly in London, I think I was about 16 at the time and there were about 4 people in the crowd, 2 of whom were my parents! I remember being petrified of the sound man.

My favourite gig so far was at Barn on the Farm festival, we played up on a mezzanine in a barn and it was heaving. The crowd there is always such a special one.
