Album Notes
Nathan has found his passion performing solo acoustic guitar. Influenced by an array of musicians, he fused many styles including jazz, blues, funk, rock, finger style, and classical to create his new sound. The mood ranges from a hungry rage to a sensuous romance, tapping into every emotion in between.

To see a live performance is spectacular, truly full of energy and animation. He plays with fierce intensity, disregarding traditional playing. The music is polyphonic; many intricate parts including melody, harmonic progressions, bass lines, as well as, percussion all performed simultaneously. He is obsessed - bending and pulling, banging and tapping, plucking and strumming the guitar, stretching its capabilities.

Nathan started playing guitar with the inspiration and guidance from his Dad at the age of 9. Since then he has participated in numerous school band programs ranging from elementary to college. After years of practice, and awarded a full scholarship, Nathan attended Wayne State University, graduating in 2002, with a bachelors in Jazz Performance.

Nathan is the director of the guitar program at Arts Academy in the Woods high school in Fraser, MI. The curriculum includes theory, technique, writing and arranging, creative thinking and much more. For more information about AAW visit

Nathan at his best! Fantastic CD, must buy!
I am a guitar player who plays a similar style to Nathan and from a musical perspective I have to put it out there that this guy is absolutely phenominal! He has the abiliy to combine percussion, bass and guitar riffs simultaneously, as heard on my two favorite tracks, 2-5 Jive and Blues For Tuck. You can also hear his more melodic, graceful side on this CD. He has an incredible talent and this is his best CD yet. You won't be disappointed if you're a fan of solo acoustic guitar.

Hands that speak the voice of God
This is another absolutely amazing album! I have had the privelege of sharing a stage with Nathan (ok it was only an open mic stage, but we shared it) in Birmingham, MI. and it's mesmorizing to watch him play. His hands glide over the strings with such ease... plucking and tapping with both hands. If you get no other CDs, get these
