Thundering roots-rock, sun-baked blues, hilarious tales and beatbox world groove… Much more than your contemporary one man band, this LA based Aussie, Nathan Kaye, is a roaring vocalist, ball-tearing lapsteel slide guitar playing, funky didge blowing, body-popping, human beatbox freak with wit & spirit. Think John Butler on pills, Michael Franti on ‘shrooms and The Umbilical Brothers on fire.
NK dances between lap steel slide guitar, 12-string and 6 string acoustic, Didgeridoo, electronic drumkit and beat boxing, interweaving catchy hooks, Socio-enviro-conscious lyrics, and hilarious storytelling. Whether in a sea of fans on the festival circuit at Glastonbury Festival (UK), Edinburgh Fringe Festival (UK) or Lightning In a Bottle (USA), or in the grassroots venues of regional Australia, Nathan inspires sweat to drip and hearts to open.
Kaye’s music will draw you in and make you think, make you laugh and make you move.
It’s the best sweaty, dirty, sexy, good-vibed foot-stomp you’ll get from one man.
“If you get the chance, check this guy out live – so many instruments for one guy to play! And rumour has it that he never goes anywhere without some kind of instrument on him… … kick back, put your feet up and enjoy! That’s my advice…”
– Sarah Howells, ABC’s triple j, Roots n All
