Chris Nathan is the Nashville based, Buffalo, NY born, full package with incredible vocal range, superior songwriting and ability to reach any audience. Grabbing tasteful influences from artists like Dave Matthews Band, John Legend, Sam Cooke, Richie Havens and Jason Mraz, Chris really spells diversity. Coming off his debut album Words and follow-up live acoustic album So’fully Yours, Chris spent the summer of 2010, writing and recording his anticipated Sugarcane EP while heavily touring across the east coast and performing as the opening act for his new friend Kris Allen (American Idol 8). The Sugarcane EP and title track single have been released to iTunes, both receiving great feedback across the world: “Sugarcane by Chris Nathan has really nice soul roots and reminds me a little of Jamie Lidell,” says The Mahogany Blog UK Publication. Twice, Chris’s song “Happy” was released as Song and Artist of the Week on Nashville’s premiere radio station Lightning 100.
