Nathan’s bio.

Nathan has increasingly been turning heads with his own material. His performance style leaves the audiences wondering where the rest of the band is hiding. Singing, chanting, playing the guitar and stomping, he fills any stage with “magnificent powerfully clear lyrics and arrangements.” Described as ‘intelligent and witty’, Nathan will ‘move men and women to tears with his sound and conviction.” In doing so he is gaining new fans every day.

Along with his own original material Nathan has always found room during his performances to include one or two of his father’s songs. From these performances sprung the idea to do a one-time tour performing Stan’s repertoire. As a result Nathan has begun a cross Canada tour “Nathan Sings Stan – The Rogers Legacy continues.” There is no one better who can bring this music to audiences with new life and voice than Stan’s son Nathan.

Stan Rogers was noted for his rich, baritone voice and his finely-crafted, traditional-sounding songs which were frequently inspired by Canadian history and the daily lives of working people, especially those from the fishing villages of the Maritime provinces and, later, the farms of the Canadian prairies and Great Lakes. Rogers died in a fire aboard Air Canada Flight 797 on the ground at the Greater Cincinnati Airport at the age of 33. His influence on Canadian folk music has been deep and lasting.

A talented musician and prolific songwriter with a rich baritone voice, Nathan fulfills the high expectations placed on the son of Canadian folk icon Stan Rogers. Nathan has shared the stage with JP Cormier, The Oysterband, Spirit of the West, John Cameron, and continues to earn his place in the Canadian folk and blues canon. In deference to the many requests he receives, Nathan will tour with a program of Stan’s songs in tribute to his father’s musical legacy.
