Once upon a time, in far away land, was a man they called Nathaniel Sutton. Born in Edmonton Alberta, Canada on September 27th, 1983, he grew up being a slave for that lovely sound called music.
While in high school, he was offered a guitar class and the lightbulb above his head nearly exploded with ideas. A budding indie star was born. After a few years passed, Nathaniel felt strong enough in the way of the guitar, but wanted a greener musical pasture, so he took it upon himself and created a new challenge, He decided to learn how to play drums. He drove himself over the edge with this new instrument at his fingertips, and started playing in cover bands ("You gotta start somewhere, right?" he exclaimed). Nathaniel knew the 'cover band situation' was not working for him and felt his inner, more eclectic tendencies were gnawing his insides.
Nathaniel went solo and started recording ALL the songs inside his head. Incessantly, he created a vast array of songs as a "1-man-band," and recorded all the instruments and vocals himself, becoming quite the self-contained unit. Noticing the poetic quality in his narratives, his passion was even greater and he knew this was him, inside and out, take it or leave it. He writes songs made up of stories stemming from life and imagination, metaphors jumping out in every verse.
With a style to call his own, though not too far distant relatives to Lou Barlow (Folk Implosion, Sebadoh), Eric Bachman (Crooked Fingers, Archers of Loaf) or even Tim Kasher (Cursive, The Good Life) and Isaac Brock (Modest Mouse), Nathaniel is a man with a unique throaty croon and a guitar acting as the paintbrush for his quietly yet brilliant abstract pallette. He's sure to open many ears soon enough with his first full-length being ushered about by Engineer Records. People have to stop calling him crazy...unless it's just crazy in love with music.
