ALL ABOUT JAZZ said this about Nate Smith….”A many-faceted jewel whose luster only grows with re-examination.” NPR MUSIC said…”Drummer Nate Smith provides more than just a beat. He intentionally weaves nuanced rhythmic counterpoint in and out of his catchy melodies.”
For nearly two decades, Nate Smith has been a key piece in reinvigorating the international music scene with his visceral, instinctive, and deep rooted style of drumming. He holds a diverse and ample resume which includes work with esteemed jazz leading lights such as Pat Metheny, Dave Holland, Chris Potter, Jose James, John Patitucci, Ravi Coltrane, and Somi among many others. His 2x-GRAMMY Nominated debut album, KINFOLK Postcards from Everywhere, sees Smith fusing his original modern jazz compositions with R&B, pop, and hip-hop. He's also ventured into the pop/rock world with recent collaborations with Vulfpeck spinoff band The Fearless Flyers, Brittany Howard (of Alabama Shakes) and performances with songwriters Emily King and Van Hunt.
