A multi instrumentalist, Nathan spends most days recording and performing music in his home studio.
His new album ‘You Get What You Believe’ will be released on July 1st.
What does the album’s title reveal?
“Over the past two years I’ve undergone a spiritual awakening and truly know that your thoughts reflect your outer reality.”
What message do you hope your music sends to listeners? What do you hope they can take away from your songs?
“On this album, I’m hoping listeners will relate to a higher consciousness. Go within to discover the universal intelligence in us all. I also hope they can relate to the fact that we can form our outer reality with our thoughts. If anything at all, I hope it takes them on a relaxing journey for 44 minutes.”
