With the release of the first single, “Tumbling After,” from his debut album with Dummy Boy Records, Nate Schierman has demonstrated his ability to capture a very raw, almost live feeling to his music.
This extraordinary single is excellent groundwork to continue an already successful career as he has already logged over 1,000 performances and sold over 22,000 records. Schierman has toured with and shared stages with such names as Dave Matthews Band, Vertical Horizon, Pearl Jam, Tal Bachman, Presidents of the United States of America, Tyrone Wells, John Oszjaca and Christian sensation Paul Wright.
Signed to Dummy Boy Records in March, 2007, the self-taught musician from the Inland Northwest, Idaho to be exact, will be doing a west coast tour in the next couple of months, and next year, to promote the single and lay the groundwork for the national release of his new album, Risk.
There are certain elements to his music that were captured during the 50’s and 60’s when music was music and not a computer generated sound.
Nate has not let himself be influenced by commercial artists. The combination of how different his sound is, mixed with some old school simplicities, merges together like a high powered combination on Risk and this new single “Tumbling After.”
Nate has been characterized as an artist deemed “Most Likely to Sell It” by the Spokesman Review, and the Sacramento News and Review described him as “ambitious, innovative and electrifying.”
In addition to Nate’s ability to produce a unique show, which his records mimic, he has the ability to loop synthesized sounds on the keyboard, while simultaneously looping sounds from his acoustic guitar which produces a live performance that is passionate, deep, and intense and makes his live show one that shouldn’t be missed.
He has also made inroads in the television market as his powerful piano ballad, Desperately Wanting, was featured on NBC’s So You Think You Can Dance, and Sweet Nothings was on the hit show Stargate.
