About Nate Laughlin
I started playing guitar at the age of 15. It was not until about 7 years into the "picking & grinning" journey that I began writing songs. I spent 2 years in Australia where my "sound" was really developed due in large part to my close friend & roommate Timothy Dearmin who introduced me to Jazz/Fusion/Funk. I feel my sound is diverse and varying, it is all natural and my songs reflect nothing but pure personal experience, observation and a personal relationship with God.
Some of my best tunes were written whilst trying to practice my guitar. I often sit down and instead of becoming a better player I end up writing. That has always been my passion and I love to express things in my life by singing and putting them on paper (computer). I've heard it said that one cannot consider themselves a songwriter unless they are constantly writing songs. I try to live by this but there are weeks that go by where I won't write at all and then other weeks I'll write two or three songs.
My EP is really just a glimpse into my musical journey of playing and songwriting. I have many more songs (some of which are bad and some I like) and I often post them on YouTube. They are raw but often updated and shared with the world via video (thanks to my iPhone).
Hopefully you'll enjoy my little EP here and even purchase it. More importantly, pass it along and maybe even along the way you'll connect with one or two of the songs. Cheers!
