'Throughout Einstein's Brain, Caswell's lyrics are smart, interesting and original. He has a keen observational sense and is one of the most original young songwriting voices out there today. His is unselfconscious intelligent songwriting that also has a sense of humour, and it provides an interesting alternative to the piles of unoriginal compact discs floating around out there in music land.' -- Rambles.net 'A seriously playful and playfully serious collection of songs... with plenty of joyous rhyme and rewarding unpredictability.' -- Kevin McCarthy's CD Reviews 'Einstein's Brain' is a collection of 6 1/2 original songs of adventure, science and love: from an epic road trip with thefamous disembodied organ, to bitersweet small town solitude, to the cloning of former Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau. Described as 'the baby brother of the Barenaked Ladies and Billy Bragg,' or what you might get 'if you crossed Ogden Nash with Lenny Bruce and mixed in the sound of Cat Stevens,' singer-songwriter Nathan Caswell performs a quirky brand of modern folk, characterized by a playful intelligence and a strong sense of irony. Originally from Thunder Bay, Ontario, Caswell began his performing career as a musical comedian. He has delighted Fringe Festival audiences across Canada and the U.S. with his one-man show, 'Sucking Chest Wound (and other love songs).' In 2002, he was nominated for the Tim Sims Award for outstanding young Toronto comic. Nathan now lives in New York City, where he's been embraced by the legendary East Village Antifolk scene. His work has evolved beyond straight comedy to incorporate more complex themes - weaving the thoughtful with the playful to create a unique and resonant experience for his audience.
