"One of the only guys in the world that can really play the traditional stuff right."
-Kim Wilson

-James Harman

"Nobody else these days plays so many styles so well, be it old time country blues, low down Memphis or Chicago blues, or even uptown string bending blues."
-Rick Holmstrom

NEWS!

Endorsed by Baden Guitars! 

Nathan has recently been chosen to endorse Baden Guitars!  These are finely crafted handmade acoustic guitars.  "I am exctied to be a part of their artist roster that includes blues great John Cephis! Finally I can perform again live with a flattop acoustic guitar that actually sounds like an acoustic guitar when amplified- thanks to the wonderful new Fishman Elipse Aura pickup system."  T.J. Baden has worked closely with Larry Fishman to develop this pickup for their fine instruments.  "The model I chose to play is the A-style Mahogony, which is perfect for fingerstyle country blues playing." check them out at www.badenguitars.com
