Nathan’s music has taken on a number of different forms over the years… initially performing as a solo artist, before moving on to form the 4-piece band Nayfumble, and later - a duo,  The Ballinsky Project, with cellist Adrianne Wininsky.  He currently resides in a little cottage in Somerset where he hides himself away writing songs and building beautiful acoustic guitars…

In 2011, Nathan was shortlisted as one of 5 finalists in the MOJO Honours List New Voice competition. Frequently compared to folk legends such as Nick Drake, John Martyn and Cat Stevens, Nathan still manages to create his own unique sound – a blend of poetic lyrics matched with a powerful and distinctive voice and a rare but captivating guitar style.
