Nathan Evans kickstarted the sea shanty phenomenon and it’s all down to him that a new generation are discovering the thrills of fisherman-themed, multi-harmonised folk music. It all began when Nathan, from Airdrie, North Lanarkshire in Scotland, decided to start uploading songs to TikTok after completing his morning duties as a postman. He soon found himself at the centre of a new cultural movement whirling around sea shanties with his own videos racking up millions of views overnight. Now, signed to Universal Music and taking his music career full time, he follows in the chart dominating footsteps of those he has always admired including Dermot Kennedy, Lewis Capaldi and Ed Sheeran as well as finding unlikely fans in Andrew Lloyd Webber, Gary Barlow and Brian May who have also uploaded their own renditions of the song to TikTok
