In 2010, Nathan’s struggle with insomnia and anxiety drove him away from his art for 4 years with the expectation of never returning. “To move through those 4 years of paralyzing anxiety/depression I had to ask myself the question, ‘Why’? Out of self-preservation, I had to find reasons to fight and be ruthless in discarding any reason that wasn’t rock solid.” It was during this period of personal confrontation that he stumbled upon the same cathartic connection with music that he had when battling Leukaemia at 7.
“This time around, I wanted to express more than blues would allow. Each track conformed to no specific genre and called upon an array of my favourite artists. From J.J.Cale and B.B.King to Bowie, Lana Del Ray, and Mos Def.”
