Nate Smith to Visit City Winery, November 11th

2x GRAMMY® Award-nominated drummer/composer/producer Nate Smith will be performing at City Winery on 11/11 as part of a limited East Coast run of tour dates in support of his latest album, Kinfolk 2: See The Birds. One of the foremost artists of the current progressive jazz movement, Smith will spend much of the next year on the road, both as drummer and music director for Brittany Howard as well as with his own incredible combo.

The highly anticipated follow-up to 2017’s GRAMMY® Award-nominated Kinfolk: Postcards From Everywhere, Kinfolk 2: See the Birds affirms Nate Smith as one of the most dynamic drummers, insightful composers, and engaging bandleaders of his generation, adept across infinite genres and multiple styles. The album sees Smith joined by an array of diverse fellow artists, including legendary guitarist Vernon Reid, violinist Regina Carter, vibraphonist Joel Ross, rapper Kokayi, and singers Brittany Howard, Amma Whatt, Michael Mayo, and Stokley Williams (of the pioneering R&B band Mint Condition).

Kinfolk 2: See The Birds includes such wildly creative tracks as “See The Birds (Feat. Michael Mayo + Joel Ross),” “Altitude (Feat. Michael Mayo + Joel Ross),” and “Square Wheel (Feat. Kokayi + Michael Mayo),” all joined by cinematic music videos streaming now at Smith’s official YouTube channel HERE. The latter track earned national applause from such outlets as NPR, which named it among “Jazz Night’s Favorite Grooves Of 2021, So Far” and raved, “That this music proudly defies classification is only natural – it's a core part of Smith's message.”
