Front Row: Nathaniel Rateliff, 'Still Trying'

Singer-songwriter Nathaniel Rateliff performed live at Brighton Music Hall in Boston on Nov. 4. Rateliff told us before the show that this song, "Still Trying," "is a song about struggling with alcoholism and how you go to bed drunk and you tell yourself, 'Tomorrow, I'm gonna sober up and totally not do that tomorrow,' and then you do the same thing the next day."

Rateliff was born in rural Missouri, where he first began playing music in church. At 19, he relocated to Denver, where he's built a passionate following. He's toured the world, including alongside the likes of Mumford & Sons, Deer Tick and The Lumineers.
