He is a well-rounded musician, who is proficient at almost every instrument, though drums are his passion. With influences like Craig Wallace, Chris Cornell, Warrel Dane, Myles Kennedy, and Lane Stayley, it’s no question where he got his unique, one of a kind sound. Nate started his first band at age 13, which was a punk rock band. His sound has evolved to a heavier mellow acoustic. However, being a very talented musician, Nate has been in bands from a wide spectrum of genera’s; such as, surf rock, alternative, funk, punk, metal, country, and hard rock. He is also an experienced singer, songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist, and session musician.

In 2019 Nate released his first single as a solo artist, "Just For Today". Once again, he played every instrument, vocals, and wrote the music and lyrics for this song.
