Fast Focus on Music enjoys the opportunity to showcase emerging artists to the public television audience. Though just 26 years old, Nathaniel Street West is a poet with a spirit of the great folk artists of the 1960s. Bob Dylan, his musical inspiration, clearly influences Street Wests lyrics and style, but he is also modern in approach, drawing on rhythm and blues, rock and roll and even modern punk. Nathaniel is a story teller and messenger. Like Dylan before him, American history and politics are woven through his lyrics. Fast Focus is pleased to present this interview and performance, shot live at the Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach, CA.
