Never one to follow convention, and always one to think for himself, Nathan James has created a musical identity with his homemade instruments and self taught skills. Whether you catch Nathan James as his true one man band pickin' and scratchin' on his own invention of washboard guitar, stomping out time on his custom suitcase drum while singing and blowing harmonica or kazoo; or leading his trio, you are sure to be moved and impressed with the unique energy and soul that he possesses. Nathan James is a wellrespected and experienced artist in his field. Starting his career as a full time gigging musician at the age of 18, Nathan is no stranger to live performances. For 15 years now, he has successfully made his living touring and recording, solely specializing on his passion of blues, and American roots music, which is clearly expressed in this live performance from March 18th 2014 at the Belly Up.
