Austin based singer-songwriter Jeremy Nail survived a potentially lethal attack of sarcoma, a rare form of soft tissue cancer that cost him his left leg. Overcoming his brush with death became the main theme for his new album My Mountain, eleven country rockers dealing with his medical nightmare and regaining his strength.
Produced by Alejandro Escovedo, who took him under his wing when they bumped into each other again in 2015, My Mountain is the story of man who had to find a new way to stand tall. Counting his blessings and fighting the good fight is what kept him going. Americans have a tendency to be overly optimistic, but Nail is a realist. He has escaped death, but the prosthetic he now uses is a daily reminder that cancer won the first round: "Gonna climb my mountain, it’s about time, just sit back and watch me walk this crooked line".
With superb slide guitar and melancholic violin supplied by his friends covering his back, he is not alone.
