One of his most recent releases is actually a little different. His song, Lottery is about feeling overlooked in many aspects of the singer’s life. Written on the roof of his apartment building, after being stood up on a date, he shows that many aspects of our lives often take a different turn that what we expected or wanted and yet here we are in this vast world, ready to try again and open ourselves up to love, and attempt to make something of ourselves.

His artistic means of making that less gut wrenching, is creating an underlying story of still enjoying life or living it as full as possible. Nathan’s journey has been a difficult one, but one thing is for sure, his quirky R&B love songs are pretty great.
