“My creative process is a selfish one,” says Nate. “I write from my personal experiences. However, when I’m on stage is where it is no longer about me. My sole purpose in that moment is to provide the most entertaining show that I can for the people that paid their hard earned dollars to see me. It is a humbling experience, knowing that you are reciprocating that energy back to the people that make my career as an artist possible. It really is a beautiful thing.”
