This helped Nathan maintain the unique country sounds with each group he performed with.
Nathan has had a passion for music and photography, photography was the road he took and for 15 years owned his own Portrait Studio. He received a call one day from a guy wanting to sell some lighting equipment and in conversation the guy mentioned he was selling his MSA S-10 pedal steel.
