------------- 'A fun record of folky tunes, acoustic guitar and vocals with that harmless but oh-so-quirky Barenaked Ladies-style emphatic vocal delivery and some pared-down They Might Be Giants-y moments.' - NOW Magazine (Toronto) ------------- 'Evokes images of a circus that just pulled into town and, in a way, this is Caswell's Traveling Show, with himself as ringmaster...If you enjoy hearing, via a unique prism, about some peculiar inhabitants of this world, this is your ticket.' - Kevin McCarthy ------------- Nathan Caswell writes songs with a quirky intelligence and a wry sense of humour, but don't let that fool you. His work transcends straight comedy to incorporate heartfelt emotion and complex themes - weaving the thoughtful with the playful - simultaneously drawing laughter and giving pause. Nathan was raised in the north Ontario pulp town of Thunder Bay, where he got his start performing as a musical comedian. He has lived in Toronto, where he was nominated for the Tim Sims Award for outstanding young comic, and in New York City, where he won the 'Battle of the Funny Bands.' Presently, he lives in Burlington, Vermont. In his songwriting, Nathan brings to bear his eclectic background: He has worked as a wilderness canoe guide, a schoolteacher, and a purchasing agent for a fancy New York spa and beauty products company. He has traveled east and west across Canada and the United States, and north to the Yukon and Alaska. Pulp Town is Nathan's full-length follow-up to his acclaimed 2003 EP, Einstein's Brain. It was recorded in the spring and summer of 2005, at Nathan's brother-in-law's place in Starrucca, Pennsylvania, and in Nathan's mother's basement in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Thank goodness for family.
