Join us for the Free At Noon at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia, as Israel Nash performs a live midday concert on Friday.

This week's Free At Noon will feature alternative country singer/songwriter Israel Nash. Hailing from Missouri, Nash garnered a following after people began to take note of his upbeat, ephemeral jams. His latest release, Rain Plans, takes an Americana approach tinged with psychedelic guitar riffs and recorded via analog giving the tracks a warm, vintage aura and forming Nash's unique approach to the album. The record was influenced by his recent residency in Dripping Springs, Texas, a small and humble town that acted as his inspiration. Now the musician is touring the United States, playing this week's Free At Noon in promotion of his show on January 23rd at Johnny Brenda's.
