Musical History-

32 years old, Nathan lives in St. Louis where he was born and raised. His parents encouraged music and started him singing and playing the piano at age four. St. Louis Symphony Children’s Choir took Nathan all over the country performing in historic venues such as Carnegie Hall (NYNY). Nathan was cast in many productions with the Opera Theatre of St. Louis and St. Louis Repertory Theatre. 
Discovering Rock & Roll, Nathan co-founded the jam rock band ‘Special Blend’ and began gigging in the 7th grade. The band released a record and endured ten years, four of which were spent attending Berklee College of Music in Boston (class of 00’). Nathan majored in Music Production & Engineering and Jazz Piano. Taking full advantage of the schools resources, Nathan acquired invaluable methodology from professors and honorary educators such as Al Kooper, George Martin, Eddie Kramer and Elliot Schiener. 
After college, Nathan returned home to open Phat Buddha Productions with long time music friends Brad Goldenberg and Mike Landau.   He joined rap/rock group ‘Core Project’ who made three records and toured nationally, prerforming in front of “The St. Lunatics”, "Ja Rule", “The Roots”, “Black Eyed Peas”, and more.
Nathan is currently involved in the development of Sound Knowledge, an educational program based out of Phat Buddha’s studios. The classes provide real world audio instruction without spending thousands on tuition or years in school.
