In his head, he drives old, quirky, reliable cars on the way to a fly fishing spot in Idaho while listening to the Carter Family, Alison Krauss, Bach, Ralph Vaughn Williams, Lyle Lovett, the Mozart Clarinet Concertos, and Steely Dan. In reality, he drives old, quirky cars in suburbia (minus reliable). When he’s not driving or playing music he likes reading Larry Woiwode, George MacDonald, Gordon H. Clark, or about old guitars and cars. He would love to be driving a 190 E 16v Benz (just in case you have one you need to get rid of).
Going back even further, in 1988 Nathan began writing and playing shows in Southern Illinois with a three-piece band. Ten years later he was married and traveling the country playing solo acoustic-guitar shows, which led to living in an RV with his wife and six children for 5 years.
