Modern Troubadour and singer-songwriter Nate Maingard was born in a cottage on the outskirts of Cape Town, South Africa, surrounded by wild oceans and rugged mountains. Growing up in his father’s guitar-making workshop, Nate eventually crafted his own instrument and award-winning musical style to go with it. His guitar Melody accompanies him in heartfelt songs, which gently illuminate and fiercely celebrate the archetypal journeys we all share as humans.
Nate is a breathe of fresh air and an exciting artist to experience, whether at his live shows or talks, through listening to one of his albums or by connecting with him online. He draws his inspiration from the indie-folk movement championed by the likes of Bon Iver, Elliot Smith, Death Cab For Cutie and Tallest Man On Earth…while remaining true to his first loves of the lyrical singer-songwriters of the 60’s, such as John Lennon, Nick Drake, Cat Stevens and Leonard Cohen.
