Nathan Evans releases his debut album ‘Wellerman’, assembling a rousing collection of sea shanties after gaining huge success from posting his version of the record’s title track on Tiktok, earning him a number one single in the UK charts. This new album also sees him take on his own original compositions starting with the new single, ‘Haul Away’.
An album that will delight new and old fans of the genre with the stirring vocal layering on the title track, the modern take of the classic ‘Drunken Sailor, and the choral chanting of Nathan’s newly written song. Having started the huge internet revival of the sea shanty genre, ‘Wellerman’s stellar production showcases the singer’s immense talent as he prepares to release more of his own tracks in the future that align with a more modern pop sound.
Speaking of the new album, Nathan said: “If 8 year old me was to see me today he would be speechless. Life has changed. My debut album is out, and what a journey to this point it has been. From never having stepped foot in a studio, to now, where I’ve recorded many songs, appeared on so much TV and with millions of followers who watch me attempt to create half decent TikToks and reels. I can’t believe how far we’ve all come, from singing in my bedroom to no one to now.”
