Geelong singer-songwriter Nathan Seeckts returns to the music scene on 8 February with the launch of his new single Old Blood.
Seeckts will launch the track, a lament of a small-town musician who let glimmers of fame go to his head, at a Geelong gig this month.
“If I’m going to put something into a song I want to believe it, or else nobody is going to,” he told the Indy recently.
Old Blood is the first track on Seeckts new album The Heart Of The City, which comes out on 29 March.
The album, a fusion of folk, country and blues with Seeckts’ gravelly voice, is his first major release in three years.
Seeckts has been writing, recording and performing as a solo artist since 2010, self-producing and releasing three EPs during this time.
He has appeared at Queenscliff Music Festival, Tamworth Country Music Festival and bars and stages across Australia and North America.
Along with his music career, Seeckts has been a teacher for a decade and currently works at Manifold Heights Primary School.
Since the start of 2017 he has volunteer-hosted a weekly Americana-based radio program on community radio station 94.7 The Pulse called Last Night In Town.
Seeckts plays at Workers Geelong on 16 February, with doors opening at 8pm.
