Nail’s ‘My Mountain’ Exclusively Premieres at All Music Guide!
Texas singer-songwriter Jeremy Nail‘s new record My Mountain (release date: May 3, 2016) is having an exclusive first listen at All Music Guide. Chris Steffen writes: “Produced by Alejandro Escovedo, Austin-based roots musician Jeremy Nail delivers My Mountain, an album based on themes of struggle and perseverance. Nail goes beyond the standard “troubadour with an acoustic guitar” dynamic, adding layers of strings, peals of distorted guitar and haunting backing vocals to create a thicker, yet appropriately vulnerable sound.”
Please have a listen at All Music Guide.

The rave reviews are flying in:
“Nail’s sound is superbly profound, dancing along the lines of Ryan Bingham and a Stetson-clad Beck.” Elmore Magazine
“dazzling…a gorgeous declaration of defiance…Graced with exceptional songwriting, production, arrangements and performances, My Mountain is a triumph…Rating: A” Jason Warburg/The Daily Vault
“… glorious..wrenching yet optimistic.. will simply put a swell in your chest …touches on many levels…The beautifully told stories of struggle, perseverance, gratitude and hope on My Mountain leave you in a reflectful mindset; thinking not only about Nail’s journey, but also reexamining your own.” Tara Joan/The Daily Country & No Depression
“Even if you didn’t know Nail’s back-story; you would quickly realise that the opening and title track, My Mountain is no ordinary song at all. Nail’s distinctive drawl takes you on a journey that touches on the dark days of his illness and the fire in his stomach that got him through some very tough days indeed….Wow!…we’ve discovered another gem of a songwriter and indeed, singer in Jeremy Nail..The end result is this fabulous Alejandro Escovedo produced record.” Rocking Magpie (UK)
Jeremy discusses his collaboration with Alejandro Escovedo, the meanings of some of his lyrics and much more in this rockin’ interview with Cara Gibney/Rocking Magpie.
“a powerful, intimate beautiful record” Patrick Struijker Boudier/Blues Magazine (The Netherlands)
“Strong soulful vocals, beautiful Americana and beautiful songs…an exceptional songwriter…The album is a celebration of life.” Richard Wagenaar/ The Next Gig (Netherlands)
“Escovedo’s production is masterful, creating an ambience that recalls the work of Daniel Lanois. The album opens with the gutsy title song, ponderous bass and drums and jagged acoustic guitar leading into sweet female harmonies and sinewy slide guitar, a wonderful slice of swampy rock…My Mountain is a sublime listen. A late night wallow in warm guitars and intoxicating rhythms bathed in pathos.” Paul Kerr/Blabber’n’Smoke (UK)
“eleven alt-country/Americana gems set in solid gold” Lisa Knight/No Depression & Aplscruf’s Music Blog
“My Mountain is the story of man who had to find a new way to stand tall….With superb slide guitar and melancholic violin supplied by his friends covering his back, he is not alone.” Hans Werksman, Here Comes The Flood
