PROFESSIONAL BIO

Nate is an award-winning singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist born and raised in Norfolk, Virginia. In high school, Nate attended the Governor’s School for the Arts, studying jazz saxophone, and continued his jazz-centric studies at Old Dominion University, graduating with a BA in Music with a focus on jazz and aesthetics in art and science. He worked in music summer camps from the early age of 14 and has been teaching ever since. While his education was primarily in jazz, Nate’s writing has a guitar-driven alternative rock feel with an indie-folk undertone. As a session-player, he has experience playing in many bands with varying genres and styles. He played saxophone with Major and the Monbacks, and most recently, lead guitar with Will Overman Band.

Nate was a finalist in the Sea Level Emerging Artist Contest 3 years in a row and was the winner in 2012. Since then he has been featured on radio and TV shows including Paul Shugrue’s Out of the Box, Hunter at Sunrise, and the Hampton Roads Show. His original song “Stereo” was a finalist in the 2016 Great American Songwriting Contest. Nate recently founded the Local Cheers concert series, which is dedicated to booking local bands at the local breweries and venues. He has also worked as an instructor and director at the School of Rock for the past 5 years.
