When Nathan was 11 his dad pulled an old Silvertone electric guitar out of the closet, and that was that. After receiving solid foundations in sight-reading, theory and jazz, his curiosity led him to learn the mandolin, bass, and piano. In high school he began to play in bands and write his own songs, which would become his passion.
After completing his interdisciplinary degree from Eugene Bible College (now New Hope) he taught private guitar lessons, songwriting, band camps, and recording. He has also played for numerous bands and churches. In 2017 he released his first full-length album “GO” which he wrote, recorded, and mixed.
