It was just about two years ago that I first heard about Nathan Walters and the music that he was working on for his debut solo album "Escape". Hearing his tracks "Makes Me Love You" and the epic "Romance You" on his MySpace page really was the writing on the wall for me – "Escape" was going to be an excellent, quite possibly, an epic pop record.
The final song on the album "Romance You" is definitely the most beautiful song on the record and was my favourite when I first heard the early versions of it online. It's an epic song, glorious in it's execution and wildly passionate at heart. Nathan wrote this song for his wife Inna and you can really get a feel for the level of commitment the two have for each other – it's very Romeo and Juliet. EQ interviewed Nathan in June 2007 and he talked quite candidly about "Romance You" and it's conception – it's definitely worth a read.
In summary, "Escape" is already one of my favourite records of 2009 and the year hasn't even begun yet. If you're a fan of talented singer/songwriters who pour more than their just their heart and soul into their music, then Nathan Walters record "Escape" will leave you overcome with pure satisfaction.
