Nathaniel Rateliff is now welcoming travelers to Denver at DIA

Take a listen.

Nathaniel Rateliff won’t be hanging out with those very good therapy dogs at Denver International Airport 24/7 — don’t be crazy — but he did do the next best (and more reasonable) thing.

The local musician’s voice will now welcome visitors to Denver when they arrive at the airport.

Take a listen.

I sort of wish it started with the hum, stomp and clap of “S.O.B.” instead of that twinkling jingle, but oh well.

And even if you’re not a visitor, seriously, you should check out what Denver’s music scene has to offer.
