From the first time Nate touched a piano at the young age of 8, it was
evident that his love and passion for music would grow. Now with 6
years of performing and touring under his belt, Nate is launching his
debut LP, Goodnight California. With song influences that range from
British New Wave, to Seventies Folk, from electronic ambience to
acoustic rock, Nate brings it with every solid performance!
Nate travels with his band throughout the southeast, through the
mid-west and even the West Coast. And Nate brings it – with a unique
and creative sound, with thoughtful lyrics, with catchy melodies and
ambient yet rocking guitar licks. With songs that are full of soul and
passion he's poised to win you over with just one listen!
Having played the southeastern United States for several years, Nate
has released 2 EPs and one full length, relatively obscure album.
Another Long September and The Darkest Sea both came out in 2007
followed by 2009's EP, Songs for Magnolia. Goodnight California, the
highly anticipated album that's been well over a year in the making is
set for national release on January 25, 2011.
The album brings two of music's great producers together: Producer Dan
Hannon, who is known for his work with rock super-stars Manchester
Orchestra on their last three albums as well as his Dove Award winning
work with CCM Artist Aaron Shust, and Producer Simon Illa, known for
his work with D Woods formerly of Danity Kane and the newly up and
coming Vonnegutt (of Big Boi's Purple Ribbon Record Label).
Goodnight California combines Nate's strong songwriting, grave, yet
soulful, voice, and acoustic presence with a new found rock demeanor.
The combination of those traits with a unique electronic ambience and
catchy synth loops provide a special musical flavor that is somewhere
in between folk, rock and electronic.
