Nathan Sheridan is releasing his latest single 'Loves Like That', following on from his self-titled EP released in 2016. The artist was signed to Burtonwood Records after impressing Seventh Day Slumber band members Joseph Rojas and Jeremy Holderfield, who offered to produce his next record.
"'Loves Like That' captures the story of the person who may not feel good enough", explains Nathan. "It tells them 'Hey it’s okay because even though you feel this way, you are made in the image of a Savior who can love you perfectly even when you don’t love yourself. You don’t have to do anything to earn this love, He can meet you right where you are, right now.' I wrote this song because I have personally struggled with low self-worth and I think it’s so important for people to hear a message like this to reassure them that God see’s so much more than they may see in themselves. We are indeed fearfully and wonderfully made, and he has a special and divine purpose for you, and for me."
Born and raised in Pearl, Louisiana, Sheridan faced adversity even before his seventh birthday. Already struggling to live day-to-day with both parents losing a battle with drug addiction, the course of his life and faith were dealt what could have been a crushing blow. His older sister passed away from brain cancer at the age of eight. But young Nathan’s grandparents stepped in, stepped up, and gave the boy direction.
With musical influences ranging from the Christian realm to folk and Americana artists, Sheridan gravitates to singer/songwriters who are adept at writing worship songs that are personal in nature. He strives to achieve that balance by giving people real examples of problems to which they can relate and feel like the song was written especially for them.
"We can’t let our past determine our future. It’s time to pick up the pieces, and move forward. Easier said than done, but it can be done and I pray my music can be a part of the puzzle in their healing process. Maybe it will even save their life. You never know."
