Nathaniel might have tasted success in Australia but he’s a global citizen with global aspirations, and he intends to stay that way. Born in Cape Town, Nathaniel’s parents moved to Melbourne when he was just six and encouraged his natural gifts at an early age.
Nathaniel first made an impact in Australia when he made the Top 6 of The X Factor with his soulful vocals. That momentum rewarded Nathaniel with a national Top 5 debut single ‘You’, an RnB jam that demonstrated his signature vocals and was eventually accredited with an ARIA nomination and triple platinum sales. Nathaniel continued on releasing more successful chart topping music, including the uptempo funk hit ‘Live Louder’ which was accredited with double platinum sales and another ARIA nomination under his belt. Nathaniel then released his debut album ‘Yours’ which showcased his versatility and his refusal to be boxed into a particular genre. It climbed to the Top 5 of the Australian charts, attracted widespread critical acclaim and also showcased Nathaniel’s songwriting skills. Nathaniel states, “writing music is definitely one of the best outlets for me to release all of my emotions.
