Chicago singer, songwriter, and guitarist Nathan Graham has signed with Pravda Records for his debut album, Saint of Second Chances, due out October 20, 2023. The first preview of the upcoming 10-song set arrives July 27 as a music video for the lead single “Pride,” directed by Rudy Rubio and premiering at Ditty TV.
“When people hear ‘singer-songwriter,’ they typically think of somebody who is white, middle-aged, male,” Graham says. But greats like Smokey Robinson, Luther Vandross, Lauryn Hill and even J. Cole deserve to be reframed as a part of the genre just as much as someone like Bob Dylan. “They’re doing it in a different way, but they’re doing the same exact thing: they’re using their voice to tell a story.”
