About Nate Taylor:
Raised on classical music, contemporary troubadour Nate Taylor found folk music and the guitar long after he thought he’d left music in the past. On January 20, 2013 while visiting family in Pennsylvania, Nate penned the following words in his journal: “The big realization is that I may have finally realized that all I want to do with my life is music…okay, let’s set a loose game plan…play guitar, write some tunes.” Though a student of music, playing the piano and cello and singing in numerous choirs, Nate had never learned to play the guitar. The next day he returned home to NYC with his father’s 40-year-old Martin guitar and the conviction to learn to play. Over the next two years he furiously learned the guitar, wrote songs, left NYC to drive around the United States, and relocated to Boston. After a year in Boston, performing and fine tuning songs written all around the country, Nate released his self-produced debut album, Harboring Hope, on June 18th. Listen now at natetaylormusic.bandcamp.com.
Often compared to Nick Drake for his intricate fingerpicking and alternate guitar tunings, Nate’s choral background results in a sound that is all at once unexpected, refreshing, and ethereal. His songs hit the major themes of love, purpose, and loss and draw influence from the likes of John Irving, Norman Maclean, and William Butler Yeats. Live performances are a true experience, as Nate paints a complete soundscape with his complex, varied guitar accompaniments and soaring vocals.
