Nathan Michel

Nathan Michel is a composer, multi-instrumentalist, and producer making quirky, adventurous music that is as comfortingly familiar as it is disarmingly strange. His previous two albums for Tigerbeat6 Records—abc def (2002) and Dear Bicycle (2003) combine instruments with lo-fi electronics, while his most recent record, The Beast, offers colorful, organic instrumental textures, lush harmonies, and skillful song-writing with only a touch of electronics. Jointly released by Sonig Records and Skipp Records, The Beast works on many levels; its smooth pop surface gives way to richness of detail that invites listening and re-listening and re-listening and re-listening. Nathan plays all of the instruments on the record himself: guitars, piano, drums, marimba, vocals, melodica, and many more. He’s also joined on two songs by Amber Papini, whose beautiful vocals add a fresh color. Doctor Nathan has a Ph.D. in music composition from Princeton University.
