    i’m not sure how comfortable i am sharing this, but it’s been on my mind today. 11 years ago on this day, after a disagreement about me staying up late to do my homework (i was such a rebel back then), i was beaten up very badly by a person that I trusted. I didnt press charges, because this person made up a story about how I attacked them and they were simply “restraining” me, and told most of our close family friends that if i contacted them, that they shouldn’t believe me. This was really hard for me, and I didn’t have a lot of people to turn to, and it took many years to forgive this person, and even longer to learn to trust people again - i still struggle with this sometimes. Luckily I had music to turn to, and for this I’m very thankful. I’m also very thankful for you folks supporting my music. I don’t know where i’d be without it, and without you. Wishing you and your families and your communities a happy holiday season. Looking forward to the new year and be on the lookout for new music soon.

    sincerely,
    nathan

  • Telephones And Metronomes (written By Nathan K.)

    one of my favorite bands, Gratiot Lake Road, covered my song Telephones & Metronomes. they were one of the first bands i played with in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan when i first started touring, and their music is something i often turn to when i am homesick.

    Looking forward to the show on the 10th at The Pool in South Bend with Austin Miller. This intimate venue used to be the Pool of Central High School in downtown South Bend and is one of the premier listening rooms in the country. Joining me will be my good friend Austin Miller, from Orlando Florida.

  • performing tomorrow with one of my favorite songwriters, Advance Base. Owen Ashworth used to perform as Casiotone For The Painfully Alone, and his record A Shut In’s Prayer under the name Advance Base has been in my car since the first time we shared the stage in November 2013. Really looking forward to playing with him again.
