Set to funky little tunes and energetic grooves, singer-songwriter Nathen Aswell’s lyrics have the type of messages that are empowering, inspiring, enlightening, and relaxing. In fact, his lyrics read like mantras or meditations, or better, words in a “self-help” book. “Get out of your head and just do it… Animate, energize, stimulate, go to it… Do that thing that makes you sing…”
How many times you have found a song in your head that repeats over and over and over? And how many times has a song left you in a good mood? And how many times has a song left you in a bad one? It happens to me all of the time. What can I say? I am audio orientated… Highly sensitive in that area.
This week someone sent me a YouTube video featuring an artist from Detroit that sang about how “cold” it was there, and meant that in every sense of the word. I could feel her pain and her lyrics stuck with me… Stuck with me like a bad Dodger Dog. Urgghh! Not so good for the sub-conscious. Because after two days of singing her hook, I needed to purge. But, thank goodness I had something to replace it with.
“Little By Little” by Nathen Aswell is the type of audio that you should listen to. Not necessarily for entertainment purposes, but for a better well being. In other words, these songs do a mind, body, and spirit good. Think of his music as something to power-up with when you are running low on energy. Like one of those protein bars that are complete or well-balanced. Or you could say, “A Nathen Aswell song a day keeps the head doctor away!” I think you get the picture.
But, if you are the type that reads “self-help” books, takes yoga, believes in a higher power, and is inspired by Truth – this is the CD for you.
So, the next time you have a bad case of the blahs, be sure to check out “Do That Thing”, “Be Still” “Little By Little”, and “I Am Walking” by Nathen Aswell. You will have a whole new attitude!
