Nathaniel Seer was born into a house of music. His mother and father lulled him to sleep each night playing old vinyl recordings of Bach, Debussy, and Chopin. At age 9, Nathaniel found his voice while singing in a gospel choir. Later, he taught himself guitar and began a serious, lifelong study of the violin. Emerging from an adolescence spent playing in garage bands and symphony orchestras, Nathaniel discovered Nick Drake and Nina Simone, Leonard Cohen and Lucinda Williams. And so Nathaniel vowed from that moment on, his discipleship to song. He writes songs not easily wrangled to the ground by weighty description. Rather, these songs exist, always in flight, between utterance and ear, and finally somewhere deep within the listener, unwavering.
