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.

Springtime gigs with Martha Tilston

It’s happening… Springtime is almost upon us! After a quiet winter, I’ll be back on the road with Martha Tilston in March… and for the first time in ages, I’ll be venturing up to the North of England :)

To warm us up, we’ll be starting closer to home with a couple of South West gigs:

Thursday 5th March: Rook Lane Chapel, FROME

Doors 7.30pm, £14 in advance
Book tickets

Sunday 8th March, The Phoenix, EXETER

Doors 7.30pm, £12 in advance
Book tickets

Then towards the end of the month, I’ll be joining Martha for two dates on her northern tour - including my first ever gig in Durham:

Saturday 28th March, Old Cinema Laundrette, DURHAM

Doors 7pm, £20 in advance
Book tickets

Sunday 29th March, The Greystones, SHEFFIELD

Doors 7.30pm, £12 in advance
Book tickets

If you’re based in or around Durham or Sheffield, or indeed Frome or Exeter, please do come along and encourage any friends you may have in those areas to come along too. These gigs with Martha are really magical and her new album is an absolute treat and well worth hearing live… booking in advance is essential so get in there now so’s not to miss out!

Finally, please take a moment to like me on Facebook - I’ve almost reached 1000 likes so a handful more from you lovely folks will help me pass that milestone… whatever that means! ;) Note though that there are two of us song-weaving ‘Nathan Ball’s so make sure you like ‘Nathan Ball’, not ‘Nathan Ball Music’ (cos that’s someone else!)

Springtime greetings all!
