Guitarist, Singer, Composer, Nathaniel is a kind of poet-philosopher in the tradition of his idols Dylan, Bowie, Harrison,…
I have known Nat since before he was born since his grandmother was a close friend. Both his grandparents were singers and Pierre was also a composer. So his gift must be genetic, but I can testify, having followed with great pleasure and admiration, his development and progress over the years, that it also took a lot of work which continues to polish the result. Hard work , talent and help from his devoted teacher and friend, Eric Bonnier, for inspiration and motivation. Not to forget his mother.
In line with his Franco-American heritage Nat writes and, with an exceptionally broad range, sings in English. Perhaps one day he will compose a few lyrics in Occitane, the early language of his native Bearn with already a rich 1000-year old literary tradition and in need of a modern troubadour.
Nathaniel writes and sings about loneliness, hope, dreams, love, in ballades which seem to echo the life he has already led despite his short 23 years.
