Bringing a whole new generation of fans of all ages to Country Music in Ireland, Nathan is a huge attraction on the Irish music scene
Born on 28th May 1990, Nathan spent his childhood years in Liverpool, England, and grew up in a family with strong Irish roots, his folks originating from Newry in County Down. It seems like Nathan was just born to perform, because even at the tender age of four, he began to learn to play the accordion, and in a few short years he had become a head chorister in the Liverpool boys choir, touring the world. He even sang for the Pope in Rome!
Trips to Ireland to compete in Fleadh Ceoil`s became a regular feature of young Nathan`s life, resulting in All Ireland medals for solo singing, and in accordion, all at just 12 years of age. Nathan soon became a member of the Liverpool Ceili band, playing piano accordion and piano. Nathan began playing solo gigs around Liverpool and London and playing shows in Ireland.
On a trip to Donegal in April 2009, where Nathan was appearing at a concert in Buncrana, he met with songwriter John Farry. He was hugely impressed with Nathan`s performance and in a few short months Nathan`s dream of performing with his own band became a reality. Nathan is now just over three years on the road with his band, and has recorded five albums and a two DVD`S, The Way the you love me, Time of my life, The Live Show, Audio CD & DVD The Wagon Wheel, The Album CD.
`Wagon Wheel`, has become a huge hit for Nathan, with over a million hits on Youtube and the wheels continue to roll for this special song. It can now be heard in clubs, discos, and dancehalls alike and on all major National Irish radio stations. Nathan’s fifth and current album `Where I Wana Be` has just recently reached the coveted No.1 position in the Irish Charts, and his new `Live in Concert DVD` has just been filmed on location in Letterkenny.
