Nathaniel was born in Cape Town, South Africa, and moved to Melbourne, Australia, when he was 6 years old. Growing up in a culture immersed in musical and artistic expression, Nathaniel developed a passion for music that has taken him on a journey from Africa, to the stages of Australia Idol 2006 Top 24, to the recording studios of Melbourne, to teaching for the “David Jaanz School of Singing”. Nathaniel has collaborated with some of Australia’s most prolific and accomplished songwriters, producers and musicians such as Jade Mcrae, Phil Turcio (Guy Sebastian “Taller, Stronger, Better”), brothers Gary and Brad Pinto, (CDB), Paul Cecchinelli (Anthony Callea “Live For Love”), Mandy Kane and TZU’s Pip Norman.
Nathaniel’s debut single ‘Vertigo’ was released exclusively via ITunes earlier in 2008 and the accompanying music video clip, which was shot at Melbourne’s iconic Eureka Tower, nationally aired on Channel 10’s Video Hits alongside a nationwide competition, which were all met with an amazing response. During his recent promotional campaign, he was interviewed by FOX FM for their Australian First program and delivered a live acoustic performance on air of his first single. In addition, he has performed live on Channel 9’s Mornings with Kerri-Anne and headlined the exclusive 2008 New Years Eve party for Channel 7 and 3AW at Melbourne’s Eureka Tower.
