about

Features Do Ya from the Californication Soundtrack and California Run from ESPN Sportscenter and NHL Network

"Neil Nathan might not be a household name, but we're adding a big fat "yet" to the end of that statement." - Flavorpill

"A warm, soulful voice, full of longing. Breezes by like a convertible cruising down the PCH, like a long-lost Old 97's track that was recently unearthed." - Magnet Magazine

"Has a talent that cuts to and through the heart." - Philadelphia Daily News

“Wow, this is really good. Like a mellow Steve Marriott.”- John Ingham - Music Journalist MOJO, NME, Creem, Rolling Stone

"There are few musicians out there that can pull off this combo of energy and soulful songwriting (Both Matthew Sweet and Jeff Tweedy qualify)." - Powerpopaholic

"The guy has a swagger that is undeniably real. “California Run” is such a perfect single it’s awe inspiring.”- FensePost

"There's a bit of Cat Stevens in his spiritual, breathy ballads, and a little Elton John in his pop rock tunes. The roadhouse jangle of 'Never Enough' updates L.A. Country Rock for the new millenium." -- Jersey Beat

"From his Josh Ritter-like chug on “California Run” to the guitar-heavy sludge of “Better Be Goin’, The Distance Calls is a windingly fun and eventful road trip into the valleys of retro rock." – Delusions of Adequacy

..a song cycle that should have been on Elektra/Asylum in the 70s." – Absolute Power Pop

"Like the soundtrack to the best road movie never made, it mixes the Eagles and ELO with a shot of Glam...Sun drenched 70's Rock doesn't come any fresher." -- Tuneraker

The Distance Calls was Best Singer Songwriter Record on Bill’s Music Forum, #5 onTuneraker’s Best, #20 on Tart Productions’ Top 37 1/2 Best Records, and #34 on Absolute Power Pop’s Top 100
