Nathaniel Seer was born into a house of music. His mother and father calmed his disquiet each night by playing old vinyl recordings of Bach, Debussy, and Chopin. At age nine, Nathaniel found his voice while singing in a gospel choir. At age ten, he began a lifelong study of the violin.
Emerging from an adolescence spent performing in garage bands and symphony orchestras, Nathaniel discovered the music of Nick Drake and Nina Simone, Leonard Cohen and Jacques Brel. After hearing those artists, Nathaniel vowed his discipleship to song.
Nathaniel 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.
