Passionate about music since the beginning, Nathan has already had many bands experiences, influenced by rock, pop, soul or hip-hop styles, for more than 15 years.
He began an international career in 2011 with Bastian Baker, with more than 100 concerts per year, in many countries around the world (Europe, USA, Japan, South Korea, Canada, North Africa,...) and in mythical places such as the Montreux Jazz (Switzerland / Japan), the Paléo Festival, the Gurten Festival (CH), Les Francofolies de la Rochelles (FR) and Spa (BE), the Olympia (FR), the Cigale (FR), the Stade de Suisse, the Hallenstadion (CH), the Cirque Royal (BE), the Blue Note (Tokyo), the Coke Happiness Festival in Berlin which brought together more than a million people, and many more...
Nathan has also been involved in other projects in recent years. We can mention Juldem or Sim’s who were nominated for the Swiss Music Awards 2019 and toured a lot in the last years, Stevans, with whom he toured in Peru in March 2018, Kay Jam, with whom Nathan recorded a first album, released November 29, 2019 and the Jamborines, a rock band he just joined in 2020.
With a bachelor degree in 2015 at the Conservatoire de Lausanne, he has also been actively involved in teaching for many years. After a first position as a drum teacher at Boullard Musique for two years, he decided to set up his own independent structure in 2015, which now has about twenty regular students.
Besides concert and teaching, he also has a drum clinic project in order to pass on his passion for music and to explain his experience, his universe and concepts related to the drum.
He is endorsed by Sonor and Meinl.
