  After experimenting with several instruments during his childhood and discovering that members of the opposite sex aren't interested in guys who play baritone horn, Nathan decided to take up electric bass. He began playing seriously at the age of 15, and has been tearing up the Detroit & L.A. music scenes ever since with his distinct brand of intelligent, funky, jazz-infused bass. Nathan currently performs as a sideman and session player for various artists in southern California. Nathan earned his A.A. in music from Henry Ford College, but attributes some of the best learning in his perpetual musical education to the time he spent in the Detroit music scene. It was in Detroit that Nathan met flutist Alexander Zonjic. As a member of Zonjic's band from 1986-1993, he performed with some of the world's most eminent jazz artists, including Bob James, Earl Klugh, Kirk Whalum, and others. Shortly thereafter Nathan relocated to southern California and eventually hooked up with Detroit buddies Scott Wilkie (the Scott Wilkie Band) and Randy Jacobs (The Boneshakers). Nathan can be heard holding down the bottom on releases by Jason Weber, Monette Marino, Deborah Flores, Scott Wilkie, The Boneshakers, Patrick Yandall, Under The Lake, Burt Brion, Kamau Kenyatta and the I-10 Chronicles 1 & 2 featuring Charlie Musslewhite, Joe Ely, Eliades Ochoa, Willie Nelson, Adam Duritz, Bill & Bonnie Hearne and many others. As a part of the Coco Montoya Band since 2008, Nathan has traveled extensively, performing all over the U.S., Canada, UK, Spain, France, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, Sweden, Holland, and more.
