From LIONIZE to Americana: Nate Bergman's Musical Evolution...

NATE BERGMAN, the Nashville by way of D.C. singer-songwriter, is a performer with a voice that transcends generations. His powerful vocals create a timeless sound that weaves through the rich tapestry of Nashville’s musical heritage. Bergman’s unique ability to infuse elements of Country, Rock, Folk, and Soul results in a sound that resonates with an increasingly diverse audience.

First introduced to UK audiences as the frontman of reggae-influenced rock act LIONIZE, in recent years NATE BERGMAN has trailblazed a new path as an solo artist embracing Americana. Anchored in Nashville’s vibrant music scene, Bergman’s journey began with a passion for storytelling through song. His live performances are a testament to his exceptional talent, marked by a magnetic stage presence that captivates audiences wherever he sings.

Now, the renowned musician is set to make a triumphant return to the UK and Ireland this July as special guest to fast rising US star AMIGO THE DEVIL.

Nate enthuses, “It is with great excitement that I share the news of joining one of the greatest songwriters and performers of our generation and great friends, Amigo The Devil, for a UK tour this July. Danny’s songwriting, the newest album, and the band’s captivating live show have been a constant source of inspiration and I can’t wait to be a part of the experience with you all.”

Today, NATE BERGMAN has shared a live version of standalone single “War On The Working Class.” Stream the new live track, recorded in Anaheim, California in 2023, on Spotify here.

The track follows the single, “Back To Nashville”, released last month and voted ‘Track Of The Week’ by Classic Rock readers, as well as landing a prime slot on Planet Rock Radio’s Stateside Playlist. Nate comments, “‘Back to Nashville’ is a deeply personal story about starting over in the face of a great loss. Transitioning pain into strength and moving forward through pain and adversity. Everyone has a place like Nashville even if it’s a refuge in your own mind.” Watch its official video, directed by Ray Aley, on YouTube here or by clicking below.

Fans can also watch a video for emotive song, “If I Was,” shared in October 2023.

Debut solo record Metaphysical Change, a blues-steeped, country-inflected album released via Velocity Records in 2022, is a profound exploration of transformation and self-discovery. Enriched by collaborations with musicians like Brit Turner (Blackberry Smoke), Frank Iero (My Chemical Romance), and Per Wiberg (Opeth) amongst noted others, Bergman’s soul-stirring melodies and poignant lyrics guide listeners on an introspective journey through the human experience.
