Gifted Songwriter, Singer, Musician, Performer, Painter, Poet, Magician. Accomplished Violist, Pianist, Guitarist. Renaissance Child.

Honours Graduate of Victoria School of Performing and Visual Arts, Edmonton Alberta and Bachelor of Music Composition University of British Columbia 2006.

In the early summer of 2005, while busking at a Vancouver Skytrain Station, this bohemian soul captured the attention of a patron. This wildly exotic looking young man who played such impassioned classical music on the Viola was an enigma. He could have sold himself out, soley based on his looks, let alone his musical talent, but he didn't. The patron who took him under her wing recognized that this talent would bring much joy to the world. And now after a period devoted to preparation, this talented young man, Nathaniel, is ready to meet you.

Lyrics

Lost & Found

Written By: Nathaniel Wong & Scott McKellar

wake up in the morning with a dead goat in your bed
wash your sheets with the chemicals on your breath
go and sell an image to the children playing in the road
burn their eyes open with the fire of magnesium

lost and found and lost and found and lost and found and lost and found and lost and found ah

god those girls on t.v. really set me off
monkeys masked in counterfeit lingerie
all you need are earrings and a tattoo
lay her down on your sand paper sheets

lost and found and lost and found and lost and found and lost and found and lost and found ah

Digital Billboard

Digital billboard, Digital billboard
Digital billboard

Doll house living, the standard for children
choose your future from a list of has beens
roll with the neck tie pinch your cheek bones
social connection talk on your cell phone
junkie fashion in a Paris mansion
hoochie costume for a night out on the town
enlightened era in their underweara
sex wooly mammoths mams on a walmart bookshelf

Digital billboard, Digital billboard
Digital billboard

open the market sell them a soft drink
worship the stock price check your options
plastic bottles and aluminum cans
brain cancer children and the mindless old folks
turn the lights on clean the house up
smoke stack gases in the middle of town
here is the church here is the steeple
open all the doors find the brain washed people

Digital billboard, Digital billboard
Digital billboard

three more payments on my electric juicer
fifty cents a minute for some teenage voices
up late sitting on my credit card
all my desires are filled but got an empty back yard
lost my soul at a junk yard sale
found some old camp T-shirts and a bucket of nails
sell me a dollar sell me a wife
teach children how to have a meaningful life

Sky Is Blue

Written By: Nathaniel Wong & Scott McKellar

I paint my house white & blue
when you drive by you know which house I'm going to
I live with my pants in my pockets
so tell all your friends

the sky is blue
and the sea is green
I know how it works baby
I know how to lean
on a passing car

I lift my voice in a song of prayer
if you like my taste I'll sell you a share
I've got the sky in a camera lens
so tell all your friends

the sky is blue
and the sea is green
I know how it works baby
I know how to lean
on a passing car

oh mama I cry
I cry at night
when I remember my dreams are real real
