Late Native is the one-man indie pop project of singer and songwriter Michael Gómez debuting in 2014 on the MezCal Music label.
Based in Dallas, Texas, Gómez has worked with a range of producers, musicians and remix artists to bring together a blend of catchy melodies and bass driven grooves. Starting with 2014's self-produced "Red Paloma", Late Native also worked with Nebbra for a popular remix of the track. 2017 saw the release of a batch of new singles including "Alright" and "U Me 2" produced by Produce Like A Pro's Warren Huart (The Fray, Matisyahu, Aerosmith) and featuring drummer Blair Sinta (Alanis Morissette, Annie Lennox, Stevie Nicks). For 2018's "Awake Dream" Late Native paired up with drummer David Palmer (ABC, Rod Stewart) and found a rhythmic match. The single was followed up with "Spotlight" mixed by Hello Shannon's Jonathan Camacho.
The new track "Make It Forever" - inspired by the dual influence of The Dave Brubeck Quartet album Time Out and the Enluv single Luvtrip - was released in October of 2019 and features David Palmer on drums once again.
