Borrowing inspiration from artists such as the Tallest Man on Earth, Nick Drake and Leonard Cohen, Nathan uses his love of folk music to communicate stories loosely based on life experiences. Armed with a parlour guitar and backed by a ragtag collection of instruments including double bass, drums, and the occasional three-part vocal harmony, this is music for contemplation.

Born and raised across three continents, Nathan Power’s eclectic upbringing imbues his music with a nostalgia derived from leaving childhood friends behind in four different countries.

A drummer in a previous life, Nathan Power spent years honing his craft playing 120+ shows a year across Australia in a variety of genres including funk/soul (The Marionettes, Paint The Town), blues (The New Savages, T.K Reeve) and country (Patrick Wilson and The Bare River Queens), before appearing from behind the drums with a desire to write songs and sing them for people.
