Boston singer/songwriter Nate Leavitt is no stranger to Boston audiences. One of the finer musicians in town, the guitarist of Parlour Bells and former Blizzard of ’78 ringleader has quietly crafted an impressive solo career, and has welcomed the new year with a new project, Nate Leavitt & the Elevation.
“There’s an inexplicable feeling I get when entering a recording studio and locking the doors on the world outside,” says Leavitt about the new record. “If the faders on the mixing console could talk what would they say? Every musician in there knows it’s time to work and perform at their best. After all you don’t want to let the ghosts in the studio down. Being in a recording studio is a lot like taking refuge in a bunker. There’s an us against the world feeling while holed up together and creating with a band. You hope to come out blazing once you’re finished.”
