The melodies feel easy and soothing like the setting sun. It feels
simultaneously Michigan-born, but at other moments pained or
world-weary or endearing searching. It feels location-less, set on by the considerable traveling he's done through his not-yet-many years. - Real Detroit Weekly

Guthrie-tinged folk jams; a golden, jangly folk style. Earthy,
soothing sounds, tinged with ruminations on metaphysics alongside matters of the heart. His songs, and any self-references, are rapt with modesty and reverence.
- Current Magazine

“Newspapers & Prayers” is Nathan K.’s way of proving that the folk record is still a ripe medium for emotion, honesty, ideas, and questions. It’s pretty damn entertaining too, and a gorgeous example of Michigan spirit. - Mostly Midwest

“Newspapers & Prayers” earns a spot next to some of the most earnest and heartfelt modern folk records in recent memory, including The Mountain Goats' “The Sunset Tree,” Iron & Wine's “Our Endless Numbered Days” and Bon Iver's “For Emma, Forever Ago. - Eastern Echo

Nathan K. is passionate, he can be very personal, and his folk-heavy debut full-length feels pure. - Deep Cutz - various
