Nathaniel and the ‘Sweats were on ‘TFI Friday’ earlier this month, where they turned in a show stealing performance of ‘SOB’ to cap the soul sensations’ breakthrough year. Watch our video to see what went down.

Nathaniel Rateliff is the star of perhaps the longest overnight success story in modern musical history. The Missouri born and Denver based frontman had spent the past decade plying his trade as a folksy singer-songwriter, building up a small but dedicated fanbase – that included the likes of Mumford & Sons and Laura Marling – but never quite breaking through to the big time.

Following two stunning solo albums there came a period of reevaluation, in which Nathaniel began writing songs inspired by his love of Otis Redding and Sam & Dave. Gathering a team of local musicians around him, he formed the Night Sweats, releasing the album ‘Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats’ in August 2015.

Mainstream recognition has been a long time coming, but thanks to a string of mind-blowing television appearances over the past few months, including ‘The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon’ and ‘Later… with Jools Holland’, Nathaniel and his band have juggernaugted into the public consciousness with style, grace and one epic song in the shape of the gospel-driven drinking anthem ‘SOB’.
