About Nathan Speir

In the artist’s words: Describe one of your earliest musical memories in detail. My parents were blessed (passed on from my grandfather) with a huge stereo system and giant collection of records of many genres. It was the beginning of musical appreciation and the art of really taking the time to just stop and listen to music. What are your top 3 all-time favorite albums on Apple Music, and why? Why did you choose these three albums in particular? Andreas Vollenweider, Down to the Moon Pat Metheny, Secret Story Patrick O'Hearn, So Flows the Current Patrick OHearn is an all time music hero in the pre-ambient chamber, early new age era. Metheny's Secret story is a favorite crossover jazz album with great orchestration. Vollenwider's unique style of improv and world music synthesis is great Find a song of yours on Apple Music that you love and tell us what makes it special. Tell us why you chose this song. “Eagle in the Harbor” It's one of my first successful recordings with acoustic instruments that helped me realize the direction I wanted to continue working towards future ambient chamber music recordings. I am still happy with the audio production wherever I hear it. What’s one of the most memorable moments in your career so far? The first time my music was featured on the national syndicated Echoes radio program made me feel like I had reached another level of opportunity. It was my solo piano album "Nathan's Piano". It gave me new encouragement to keep at the craft. Is there anything left on your bucket list as an artist or band? I would love to collaborate with other artists and producers in my genre. I would love to score a meaningful movie.
