How many people can say that they are solely responsible for one of the biggest trends of the year?

Well, Nathan Evans can – and it’s one of the wildest trends in recent memory.

When the Scottish postman-turned-singer posted a video of himself singing the “Wellerman” sea shanty on TikTok, there was no way of knowing that it was going to explode into an international talking point.

But now, with three singles released by a major record label (including his version of “Wellerman” which topped the charts in the UK, Austria, Belgium, Germany, Ireland, Netherlands, Norway, Swedish and Switzerland), a book on the way and having appeared across UK TV numerous times – there truly is no stopping the Scotsman.

Along the way, he’s collaborated with 220 KID, Digital Farm Animals and even GRAMMY award winning songwriter Amy Wadge (most famed for co-writing Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud”) and gained over half a million global streams.

Nathan Evans sat down with James Gilmore to talk about his wild 2021, his upcoming book, representing Scotland on the world stage and much more.
