Nathan’s work fuses two chief loves – one for the classic songwriting of Paul Simon or Van Morrison and the other an eagerness to experiment and push boundaries sonically. Perhaps unexpectedly he finds inspiration in left-field house music. “That’s where I get the emotions I like to bring into my own writing he explains “I love the way it makes you feel – it’s euphoric, but sad, introvert but expressive. I can’t quite pin down what it is… I love that darker side of the genre, I guess.”

Break out single ‘Right Place’ is a case in point – warm and moving, it’s born from a deeply private place but without revealing so much that it becomes introvert. “When you’re writing on your own, because no one’s listening to it you can write about seriously personal stuff.”
