For Nate Walker, it’s all about the music. Raised in central PA, Nate escaped schoolwork by diving deep into his parents’ record collection, studying trumpet, and teaching himself drums and guitar while listening to everything from Chet Baker to Led Zeppelin—explorations that eventually led him to Interlochen Center for the Arts, more listening, and more learning.

Today, Walker is a versatile and gifted musician known for his ability to write, record, produce, and mix original tracks across genres and platforms from the comfort of his Frenchtown, NJ studio. Walker’s compositions have been featured on Netflix and Amazon (“Taylor Swift – Journey to Fearless”), MTV2 (“Room Raiders”), and Discovery Kids. He has produced and written with Brooke Moriber, Constantine Maroulis, and drag star Pissi Myles, as well as having diverse collaborations with names like Claude Kelly, Tiffany Kumar, Israel Cruz, and Chantilly. Notably, Walker played a crucial role in Jay Sean’s hit album All or Nothing, contributing guitar on tracks “All or Nothing” and “Stuck in the Middle” featuring Craig David.

No stranger to the road, Walker has toured extensively, opening for some of his heroes, including acclaimed artists such as Ben Folds, Butch Walker, Don McLean, Sonic Youth, and Guster. Walker even trained to be part of the Blue Man Group (true)!

On music, Walker’s feelings run deep, “The entirety of our experience is vibration and rhythm. When we speak, laugh, cry, or even yell, we’re singing ourselves to each other—our heartbeat, our gait, the clacking of our train of thought, the hum of a fluorescent light, the movement of celestial bodies. To me, music is the fundamental connecting thread through it all; within and without. Our universal condition, manifest… and, of course, it doesn’t hurt to have a killer hook.”

Wherever the road leads Walker next, he’ll be ready.
