Nathaniel is a Halifax artist creating Funk based R&B\Soul music that draws from a wide range of influences such as Sade, Chic, Nick Waterhouse & Tower of Power.

Within that year, he assembled his first tangible piece of work; His self-produced, debut EP entitled "Imagination," released in August of 2018. Producing records in his apartment studio (Studio 204), he is constantly challenging himself to further not only his writing skills but his production and engineering capabilities to create a sonic palette that will serve to paint any emotion for any mood. His sound is brought to life on stage by a group of skilled musicians and good friends that embody the energy of the recorded tracks whilst adding live elements that bring a whole new experience to the listener.
