Nathan Allebach gets around. Having begun his musical career in 2011 with the duet Earl Raine, he quickly embarked on his own as a solo artist, performing under the name Earl. During this time, he joined up with Philadelphia indie-folk heavy hitters Former Belle. In 2013, Allebach left Former Belle to pursue a new collaboration with songwriter Rachel Moyer. Allebach and Moyer performed under the name Nathan Earl & Rachel Joy, released two records and received radio play and support from WXPN. In November 2015, Allebach and Moyer parted ways. Not one to dwell, Allebach has begun writing and recording new material for release in 2016 under the name Nathan Allebach.
For his session, Nathan performed his original song “Alone With You” and (oddly enough) a cover of Tegan & Sara’s “I Was a Fool”. If you haven’t heard the original of this song, I would check it out (here). It’s a pretty stark contrast between the two. You can find Allebach at his Facebook or Bandcamp pages.
