Music has always played a key-role in Nathan David''s life. Growing up in the inner city, coming from a broken home, abandoned by his single mother at the age of 7, Nathan David turned to music to find solace and shelter from the pain. The everyday struggles just to maintain, taught him to swim upstream against the strong negative currents of the harsh inner city and to capitalize on the opportunities that lay before him. He realized that in order to somehow change the cruel hand of life that he was dealt, he had to hone and develop the musical talents that he knew he possessed.
Nathan''s determination and blossoming talent soon paid off. He began to garner invitations to sing in scores of churches and missions throughout the local community. His vocal talent created a buzz as he connected other like-minded vocalists to form the group TOKEN. While in the group, he worked closely with 106.1 KMEL, the Golden State Warriors and Levi Strauss. Nathan David soon found himself sought after as a solo artist by major recording labels.
While in his senior year at Skyline High in Oakland, CA he was "discovered" by a group of investors. In a few short months following graduation, Nathan found himself on a plane to Los Angeles where the lucrative deal of a lifetime would be offered. Following Nathan''s impromptu acappella audition for the record label ran by Full Force, the career pivotal question was posed. "Depending on how you answer the following question will depend on whether or not you walk out of here with a check and a deal. The question is; would you be willing to sell out on your religion for your fans?" Nathan''s immediate answer was, "No. This does not line up with the ''word'' that I received as a child." Full Force went on to produce two of the best selling bands in history, NSYNC and Backstreet Boys.
Nathan experienced weeks of life threatening encounters with the investors for "blowing the deal." Soon after, Nathan received a call from the producer of the demo that triggered the record label invite. "Just wanted to call to let you know it''s over. The investors died last night in a car crash."
Nathan David''s faith in Christ and decision to postpone immediate exposure at the time and to become a student of the art form has given him a maturity and musicianship unparalleled. Nathan has reached a world-wide audience of 200 million, playing at such venues as San Francisco''s Candlestick Park, the Trinity Broadcasting Networks (TBN) Post Dove Awards Show with CeCe Winans, Donnie McClurkin and Steven Curtis Chapman and to a sold out Pac Bell Park stadium.
The maturity and musicianship that represents Nathan David, recently landed him a show opening for Chico DeBarge where he delivered a captivating performance to an audience that might have never heard of the message of eternal life before.
Nathan continues to make in-roads to establishing himself as a driving force behind an unprecedented new sound. He without a doubt spans a mighty bridge connecting once isolated islands of denominations, cultures, races and generations. This revolutionary artist blends hip hop sounds with smooth R&B harmonies and his love for his creator is ever present in his lyrical message.
Nathan David is committed to his calling and is sensitive to allow the listener to hear what''s on the inside.
