Israel Nash

Indie-folk troubadour Israel Nash carries on the torch of legends like Neil Young and Willie Nelson, proudly waving the Americana flag since the release of his debut album in 2009.  Since then, Nash has relocated around the country a number of times in search of the perfect locale in which to fully devote himself to his music. Eventually he settled in Dripping Springs, Texas, just southwest of Austin. It was there that he recorded his most recent albums, Rain Plans and Silver Season, as well as an EP with local psych-rockers The Bright Light Social Hour.

Hill Country Guitars
"There are a few really old buildings on Mercer street that give you that country Texas town feel. One of my favorites, has to be the one at 302 Mercer Street. And I swear it has nothing to do with the fact that it is called Hill Country guitars and has some seriously rad new and vintage guitars that knock my socks right off my feet."  —  Israel Nash
