Cleveland, TN, raised Nate Rose returns with his debut album Pie at the Party, an 11-track body of work that celebrates his journey from an independent artist to a music connoisseur who gives his all through his music.
The project opens up with a cinematic tune titled ‘Hatchet” which sees him setting the tone on his own terms, he takes no for answers and breaks the mold with his commanding vocals, impassioned flows, and unbridled bravado. This is followed by the bouncy “Hollywood” where he flexes on the opposition and naysayers who flock around and try to pocket watch his moves. In “Goofy” he makes use of a moody and dark backdrop and as the title says, he gets into his carefree mode and takes us into his world filled with fast women, shiny things, and much more. The following tracks “Flip” and “Anyday” features Jon Keith and Reo Cragun respectively. The former has a haunting sound and the emcees deliver pure braggadocio bars while the latter has a smooth melodic vibe and details Nate’s go-getter mindset. Nate gets into an introspective mode in the somber bass-heavy tune “Tortoise & The Hare” which uses the classic Tortoise and Hare story as an analogy to emerging artists hastily rushing into record deals without having foresight. The project closes out with “Bet She Do”, a sublime atmospheric track that has a nostalgic vibe.
Overall the project shows Nate Rose’s songwriting skills and love for hard-hitting trap soundscapes, heartfelt lyrics and of course the bravado and stylish themes that make him tick.
