Influences:   Old county, old jazz, Old anyone. Also not so old, mature, middle age, and youth. Love fingerpicking, the struggle with lead playing, and the Key of G.

Nathan Spears:

A Philadelphia based singer-songwriter who has been entertaining for over forty years. Nathan was born in Porterdale, Ga and raised on the shores of Lake Erie. His vocal style seems to be a mix of early Elvis Presley intertwined with John Prine. This folksy country blend suits his baritone vocals and lends an easy listening relaxation to his original and cover songs. He is currently a member of PASA (Philadelphia Area Songwriters Association).

Proud member of The Pour Rabbits since 2004.

Always striving to improve his style and technique Nathan believes it is an artist’s responsibility to continue to evolve. He is currently studying theory with Pete Smyser. Pete is an exceptional talent in the field of solo guitar playing and especially accomplished in Jazz and Classical guitar. He has been the guiding influence in the instrumental part of Nathan's musical education.

    Hello. It Will be very interesting to hear your take on the lyrics. Thank you

  • @arthurrossi Feb 19

    Hey! Thanks so much for the wonderful song that you made of "Will we know who once we were"! You have really beautifully captured the feel I hoped the words would convey. The music has a nice melancholic touch and feels so tender, your vocal delivery is perfect for this, I am so happy and feel appreciative.
    May I ask you for a favour? Could you, please, be so kind to send me the demo on my email address, which is

    Sure, Nathan, glad to play bass on it. Let me know as you move forward later in the month. The DAW program doesn't matter too much, send me a WAV or MP3 file to play along with and I can send you a track to drop into your DAW of choice.
