EVERYTHING ABOUT SINGER- SONGWRITER NATHAN BALL FEELS UNFORCED. A NATURAL, EASY, CALMING PRESENCE, HIS MUSIC FLOWS THROUGH YOU IN MUCH THE SAME MANNER.
IT TOOK AN EXTENDED SPELL IN THE MOUNTAINS TO UNLOCK THIS PATH. UNTIL THEN, MUSIC HAD BEEN A SOLITARY, UNCERTAIN PURSUIT – A PASSION, FOR SURE, BUT ONE THAT HAD YET TO FIND IT’S LEGS. RETURNING TO THE UK, DEMOS IN HAND, NATHAN THREW HIMSELF INTO CRAFTING HIS SOUND. WRITING AND RECORDING, HE GATHERED A BAND AROUND HIM AND BEGAN PLAYING SHOW AFTER SHOW.
NATHAN’S WORK FUSES TWO CHIEF LOVES – ONE FOR THE CLASSIC SONGWRITING OF PAUL SIMON OR VAN MORRISON AND THE OTHER AN EAGERNESS TO EXPERIMENT AND PUSH BOUNDARIES SONICALLY. PERHAPS UNEXPECTEDLY HE FINDS INSPIRATION IN LEFT-FIELD HOUSE MUSIC.
NATHAN’S APPROACH TO WRITING GOES AGAINST THE GRAIN. “I LIKE TO NOD TO THE THINGS I’VE BEEN THROUGH BUT LEAVE SPACE FOR PEOPLE TO ADAPT EACH NARRATIVE TO THEIR OWN LIVES AND EXPERIENCES.”
LOSING HIMSELF IN THE OUTDOORS, MUCH OF NATHAN’S MATERIAL IS CONNECTED TO HIS SURROUNDINGS. “IT’S WHERE I WRITE BEST; BY THE SEA, IN THE MOUNTAINS, IN THE WOODS. I LOVE BEING TOTALLY IMMERSED IN NATURE SO NATURALLY THOSE THEMES FIND THEIR WAY INTO THE MUSIC.”
