Music is life for me, it’s my culture, it's about connection and family. It takes me to positive places and leads to opportunities beyond my dreams.
Multi-talented emerging singer-songwriter Nathan May descends from the Arabana, Yawuru and Marridjabin clans.
Formerly a student at the Centre for Aboriginal Music Studies (CASM) Nathan is now studying Popular Music & Creative Technologies at the University of Adelaide Elder Music Conservatorium.
In 2014 Nathan was featured in 'Unearthed', the NITV documentary series focusing on the achievements of young Indigenous Australians around the country. Nathan released his first EP 'Reflections' in early 2016. The EP reflects Nathan's life journey so far.
Nathan was nominated and a finalist for the South Australian Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander Artist of the Year Award in 2018. In 2019 Nathan received the Aboriginal Young Achiever Award for his contribution in music and community service awarded by the Governor of South Australia.
Nathan is looking forward to recording his debut full length album, for release in late 2020.
Nathan writes in memory of his friends and family and as a reminder that there’s always hope. He sings with a wide open smile from deep within his soul and has an innate ability to craft songs and express feelings of wide appeal to a broad audience that are way beyond his 26 young years.
