"Being a recording artist has helped me to develop an entirely customized set of skills and patience" Nathan says of his recording endeavors.
"When it's your own music, some things seem hyper crucial and later on not so much. In the end, you hope you have your masterpiece as you envisioned it. You hope you didn't forget anything you wanted to do, because after all, once it's out there, it's for real!"
Nathan further comments on his new release:
"This is a hard hitting jammi jam of funk, rock and hip hop rolled into some heavy butter sauce and tossed into an iron skillet full of hot grease from the streets! This track also represents the joys and struggles that artists and musicians encounter making a life in the big apple."
