In describing where he feels he sits in an area of Christian music that is in a very fruitful season, Nathan shared how touring with other Worship leaders and his journey over the past few years has brought him to this point of releasing his latest offering:-
“I think primarily I have learnt to feel comfortable in who I am as a songwriter and embrace any nuances I have that make make these songs my own voice. As I stepped into the world of writing worship songs and collaborating with people coming from differing contexts and backgrounds, God affirmed in me that He calls each of us to hold on tightly to who He purposefully created us to be.”
With songs that are perfectly crafted for the corporate church body to sing, Nathan has a unique gifting to make each lyric and chord that is struck feel like it has been created to bridge that Gap between you, the listener, and the divine. Songs that speak of a depth of relationship but also the sweet simplicity of Gods love for us.
