Album Notes
As society hurtles towards a potential brick wall, it is energetic music like this that empowers us to make changes in our lives personally & unite together to ignite positive change.
As Kaye sings, "We don't have to be going down in the end..." amidst the solid bass lines of the talented Paulie B (The Beautiful Girls, George) and smashing kit grooves of the joyful Marty Jones, we can't help, but feel like stomping our feet in agreement.
In 'Nobody's Slave, Nobody's Master' we feel the raw power of truth of the spiritual warrior's path of striking a balance between not fearing & not creating fear in others when Nathan reveals his preferred epitaph, "When I die & my body's in the Earth, my soul returned to the place of my birth, the inscription on my tomb you will see, is that I feared no one & no one feared me."
This EP (extended play) is not just a collection of great rockin' tunes, but a compendium of wisdom & healing keys for the astute listener.

An influential part of the Australian blues and roots scene, Nathan Kaye, the globe-trotting uplifting one-man-band who thumps out his songs on slide guitar, slide-didge & electronic footdrums at festivals, bars and has even been known to smash out 5 hour sets in outback hotel rooms.

Similar to a lot of Blues and roots musicians, he’s a bit of a hippie activist, with many of his songs dealing with subjects like setting aside time from the hustle ‘n’ bustle of modern life to children being locked in detention centers. But he’s also quite the larrikin and loves to spin funny tales about his adventures on the road, like his Lucky Man Story about the hilarious reactions he got from blokes in the USA to his (ex)girlfriend as they walked down the street.

Unlike other one-man-bands, Kaye pulls out some extremely left-field stuff that defies genre pigeon-holing. Such as his hilarious beatbox routine where he improvises a bunch of audience-chosen requests of songs and mixes them up like a beatboxing DJ.

Nathan has maintained a fiercely independent DIY approach to his original music and has managed to carve out a solid career, even if it sometimes means going from playing to small numbers at organic cafes to thousands at festivals. As long as he’s bringing people together lifting them up playing live music and earning a living, he’s a happy man.

Kaye's music will draw you in and make you think, make you laugh and make you move.
NK is a one-man band and a talent packed show that has to be seen to be believed and his songwriting is just as infectious. Trust us, you’ll be better for it.
It’s the best sweaty, dirty, sexy, good-vibed foot-stomp you'll get from one man.
