Nate Miller and James Vitray are the Nate and James in question and they do an excellent line in acoustic driven pop. From the opening chords of Psalm 57, the duo sound suspiciously like Simon & Garfunkel but then that duo did define what can be done in this style of music. N&J do an excellent job with catchy tunes, mellow vibes and enough pop sensibilities and accompaniment to drive these songs forwards. Beautiful harmonies, sensitive songs and it all falls apart. Favourite songs? Hmm... I like the dreamy feel of the chorus of "Honestly" and the understated rhythm and intertwining vocal lines exploring the message of "Without You". Just works lovely! If you miss Phil & John, try Nate & James!
