    Up To You
Nathan Hawes AKA KESMAR is a 23 year old Sydney based producer and songwriter. Following his well-received debut EP ‘Up To You’ released in March 2019 that included collaborations with LANKS, Panama and Cleopold - Nathan took a step back to hone in on his songwriting and production.
After a heavily collaborative first release, he felt a need to develop in solace and refine a sound - particularly on the production front where he had a clear aesthetic vision inspired by era’s gone by.
Amongst the madness of 2020 Nathan found himself forced back into the home studio like many artists have been. The result of that time saw the creation of a new collection of work - a collection that has strong ties to minimal late seventies yacht rock with references to ‘Christopher Cross’ & ‘The Alessi Brothers’ - that sonic touchpoint extends to the wider aesthetic of the project, with videos and artwork all created by Nathan himself. Nathan wears his inspiration on his sleeve and the result is a magical trip through a seemingly simpler and blissful time.
“I wanted to make a bunch of songs that basically just made me happy and I hope it has the same effect on others” - Kesmar
