Biography

Once upon a time, in far away land, was a man they called Nathaniel Sutton. Born in Edmonton Alberta, Canada on September 27th, 1983, he grew up being a slave for that lovely sound called music.

While in high school, he was offered a guitar class and the lightbulb above his head nearly exploded with ideas. A budding indie star was born. After a few years passed, Nathaniel felt strong enough in the way of the guitar, but wanted a greener musical pasture, so he took it upon himself and created a new challenge, He decided to learn how to play drums. He drove himself over the edge with this new instrument at his fingertips, and started playing in cover bands ("You gotta start somewhere, right?" he exclaimed). Nathaniel knew the 'cover band situation' was not working for him and felt his inner, more eclectic tendencies were gnawing his insides.

Nathaniel went solo and started recording ALL the songs inside his head. Incessantly, he created a vast array of songs as a "1-man-band," and recorded all the instruments and vocals himself, becoming quite the self-contained unit. Noticing the poetic quality in his narratives, his passion was even greater and he knew this was him, inside and out, take it or leave it. He writes songs made up of stories stemming from life and imagination, metaphors jumping out in every verse.

With a style to call his own, though not too far distant relatives to Lou Barlow (Folk Implosion, Sebadoh), Eric Bachman (Crooked Fingers, Archers of Loaf) or even Tim Kasher (Cursive, The Good Life) and Isaac Brock (Modest Mouse), Nathaniel is a man with a unique throaty croon and a guitar acting as the paintbrush for his quietly yet brilliant abstract pallette.

Lyrics

Zombies Are Everywhere

Written By: Nathaniel Sutton

Take a look at my watch
It's 8 'o clock
I've got to be back home soon
At this time of night
It's every man for himself
and I'm too scared to leave this room
So entertain me
Fill me with insanely
Funny feelings of last summer
Just get out of your chair
And be prepared
For whatever comes our way

Defenses are down
We strike the hurt
What a wonderful sound
I do prefer
All that's left now are pounds of glory
The sun awakes
And we're safe for another day

The virus has spread
Leaving many undead
And I can't find a way out of this
I remember the moon
And how the stars used to bloom
But now I can't stand the sight of it
So if it's my turn
To watch the world burn
I think I just might enjoy it
For what it is worth
I can't wait to return
To the place they call heaven

Defenses are down
We strike the hurt
What a wonderful sound
I do prefer
All that's left now are pounds of glory
The sun awakes
And we're safe for another day

They've all taken over
The zombies are everywhere

Bumble Bee

Written By: Nathaniel Sutton

Hey there you yellow and black bumble bee
I can see that your world is crumbling
I can tell by the way you look at me
Now, I can tell by the way you look at me
I can give you advice you advice you'll never take
Because you think that your life was a mistake
I can tell by the way you look at me
Now, I can tell by the way that you look
Hey there you yellow and black bumble bee
There is more to life than sweet honey
Keep in mind if I tried I could pull off your wings
Keep in mind if you tried you could sting me
I can give you advice you advice you'll never take
Because you think that your life was a mistake
Keep in mind if you tried you could sting me
Keep in mind if you tried you could sting

Dirty Old Town

Written By: Nathaniel Sutton

I don't recall I ever told you
How could you have known
Well, I'm better now I thank you for your concern
I guess the word spreads fast here in this dirty old town
A reminder that i'd better get the hell out

Find a light, calm the mind
Feel the air from outside

I predict that the future will be a musical note
So when we speak we'll speak in harmony
Then i'll take all the words back that ever hurt you
I don't want to be that drunk on top of the barstool

Find a light, calm the mind
Feel the air from outside

I took the long way home
Never had the time
And as the world gets stoned
We'll find a light

Find a light, calm the mind
Feel the air from outside.

Come Back Home

Written By: Nathaniel Sutton

I can travel on my own two feet
I don't need you, I'm a one man team
Endless freedom, no more damn curfews
Although it's never been the same without you
So come back home

I'm a rebel without a cause
I can run around with no T-Shirt on
I can spray paint random letters on the wall
But I miss you now, thought I might give you a call
To come back home

I admit I'm at fault when I recall our recent brawl
A verbal assault that left me here all on my own
Well I miss you now so baby please pick up the phone
And come back home

All this pressure of what to do with all my time
Left Alberta, drove out, passed the borderline
It's so quiet, all I hear is the engine hum
It's so different now when I don't hear your voice say
"hun, just come back home"

I admit I'm at fault when I recall our recent brawl
A verbal assault that left me here all on my own
Well I miss you now so baby please pick up the phone
And come back home

Nickel Or Dime

Written By: Nathaniel Sutton

Dear love of my life could you give me a kiss
We can go out to the alley if you insist
I've never felt so dirty before but I've never felt so good
I can think of a time, spare a nickel or a dime
You we're looking divine, I was looking to find
Everybody else was looking behind
What an awkward situation to be in

Running up and down, all around this town
In search for something that can never be found
I'd like to know the queen that wears this crown
A masterpiece in the making
Forever and ever I can talk about weather
If it's talking with you I can never say never
And if it's me you've been looking for
Take me home, I'm yours

Hey now, hey now

There's a parade knocking on my door
I don't know what they're here for
But i'd better find out before they bust the door down
I can relate, yeah, I can just tell that these people are not to raise hell
Take a look at my face, is it subtle?
I want to avoid getting myself into trouble
And if it's me that you've been looking for
Take me home, I'm yours

Hey now, hey now.

'Till death do us part i'll love you 'till the end
I'll call you my wife, my very best friend
Life ain't so hard, if you only pretend
So take me home, I'm yours

Hey now, hey now.

Groggy Morning

Written By: Nathaniel Sutton

Groggy Morning, I wonder what day it is
Thought I heard you calling, must have been a dream that I had
A cup of coffee caffeinated to the extreme
I took my bike and rode it down into the ravine

A close call just made me realize
Just 'cause I'm breathing doesn't mean that I'm alive.

I found myself buried beneath the tinted leaves
Laughing like a maniac with an uncontrollable disease
A probable excuse, I think I've lost a tooth somewhere
In between the morning and the ravine

A close call just made me realize
Just 'cause I'm breathing doesn't mean that I'm alive

Lord give me all your strength

A close call just made me realize
Just 'cause I'm breathing doesn't mean that I'm alive

WingTech 3000

Written By: Nathaniel Sutton

The mind's set to blow when the lights turn down low
They're waiting to see the worlds most greatest catastrophe
We're living a lie (lie lie lie lie)

Now we're all flying on WingTech 3000
Technology is dying, I want my money back
We're living a lie (lie lie lie lie)

There's no reason to save anything for special occasions
So drink your wine don't waste my time on standing ovations

Bring It On (Godzilla)

Written By: Nathaniel Sutton

Oh baby, don't sound so illogical
We don't need alcohol to have a good time now
And besides, we're better off alone
We don't have anyone bringing us down tonight

Oh baby, don't go to bed
We should stay up all night instead

Oh baby, you can't stop the unstoppable
Bring it on Godzilla, you ain't got nothing on me
Ain't it nice to be living in a dream
Hop on to my cloud there is room right next to me

Oh baby, don't go to bed
We should stay up all night instead

Age Of The Dinosaur

Written By: Nathaniel Sutton

I can breath underwater now like a fish, I can't say just how
I can fly, I'm soaring through the sky like a bird, haven't you heard the word?
Now I seem to be floating away like an old yet familiar dream
as my friends and my family begged don't go away
I can scream, I can almost roar like the age of the dinosaur
I can climb closer to the sun like a cat and I'm so proud of that
Now I seem to be floating away like an old yet familiar dream
as my friends and my family begged don't go away.
