Nat Myers, a Korean-American poet from Kentucky, carries on the traditions of the blues while simultaneously shattering every stereotype that comes with them on his brand new debut album, Yellow Peril. Myers pulls from a wide range of historical threads while remaining thoroughly modern - using fleet riffs, complex rhythms, and quick tempos to tell tales full of intelligence, soul, contradiction and nuance.
The ten-song debut stems from a passion for the blues that began while the Northern Kentucky musician was immersing himself in the world of American poetry: “it dawned on me that the real epics were being told by these itinerant musicians from the ‘30s and ‘40s, even before recorded sound. That’s when I did my deep dive into the blues, so I could write my own epic,” Nat recalls. Stream the album and watch Nat Myers' official music videos now!
