Nate Feuerstein, NF as he is known to fans, will be making a highly anticipated return to his home state for a tour promoting his new album, The Search, released July 26, 2019. He will be making stops in Grand Rapids (Sep. 13 at Deltaplex Arena) and Sterling Heights (Sep. 14 at Michigan Lottery Ampitheater) on a tour that will take him across the country and internationally for the first time.
Feuerstein has managed to gain relevance with lyrics that touch on serious subjects that are largely ignored by others in the genre and harnessing the power of social media, YouTube and Spotify. This has enabled him to gain fans across the musical spectrum, ranging from Christian teens to hardcore hip-hop enthusiasts.
While many fans may have learned of NF most recently during his meteoric rise on the back of his 2017 album, Perception, and its triple platinum track, “Let You Down,” his fans will be quick to remind you that he is not new to the hip-hop scene. Feuerstein addresses this notion directly in the first single to be released from The Search, “Why,” when he says, “Let You Down’s the only song you’ve heard of? Well then you’re behind.”
This sentiment has made its way into Feauerstein’s lyrics before as well. In his song, “All I Have,” from his third studio album, Perception, he echos the same: “And y’all know what’s stupid? I thought all you had to do was get a record deal and yo things start moving. But that’s not the case because most of the times the artists you hear, You keep on thinking that artist is new but that artist has probably been at it for years.”
After releasing his first three studio albums through Capitol Records (Mansion in 2015, Therapy Session in 2016 and Perception in 2017), Feuerstein has released The Search on his own label, NF Real Music, in partnership with distributor, Caroline Records. It is a gamble that has already paid dividends as sales of his album and forthcoming tour are already beating projections. The Search is locked in a battle with Chance the Rapper’s new release for the #1 album in the country this week.
Tickets for both shows can be purchased through his website and start at $46. Purchases of two tickets or more come with a complimentary copy of the album, marking another departure from the standard moneymaking model in the music industry. It is clear NF values deep connection his fans have with his music over his career and he is showing no signs of slowing down.
