Sensitive singer/songwriter or glam rocker?

If you think no one can be both, you've never met Neil Nathan.

From his mirror ball masked lead role in the Off-Broadway rock opera, Automatic Superstar, to his folky cover of ELO's 'Do Ya' featured on the Californication Season 2 Soundtrack(Sheryl Crow, Nick Cave, Rob Zombie, Warren Zevon), Neil has mined these extremes deftly.

Nathan's debut LP is a full-length, garage-rocking album produced by The Go's Bobby Harlow. It features the Motor City's top rock-n-rollers, with Dean Fertita (QOTSA, Raconteurs), Kenny Tudrick (Kid Rock, Detroit Cobras), John Krautner (The Go), Joey Mazzola (Sponge, Detroit Cobras), and Danny Methric (The Muggs, The Paybacks)providing support.

Bio

Sensitive singer/songwriter or glam rock animal?

If you think no one can be both, you've never met Neil Nathan.

Matthew Smith (Outrageous Cherry, The Go) described his upcoming debut LP, The Distance Calls, as Alice Cooper meets Cat Stevens.

From his mirror ball masked lead role in the Off-Broadway rock opera, Automatic Superstar, to his folky cover of ELO's 'Do Ya' featured on the Californication Season 2 Soundtrack, Neil has mined these extremes deftly. They are also on display in the indie film 'Descent,' starring Rosario Dawson, in which two of his ethereal ballads and one of his bluesy garage numbers are featured.

Neil is on the Californication Season 2 Soundtrack alongside Sheryl Crow, Nick Cave, and Warren Zevon. But he says the best thing about the whole experience was that Jeff Lynne had to approve the song and loved it.

On the heels of this recent success, Neil has inked a licensing deal with North Star Media; home of such luminaries as Mudhoney, Rod Stewart, Bonnie Raitt, and the one and only, Cher.

Nathan's upcoming project is a full-length, garage-rocking album entitled The Distance Calls, and recorded last spring at Tempermill Studios with The Go's Bobby Harlow. Harlow brought together many of the Motor City's top rock-n-rollers, with Dean Fertita (QOTSA, Raconteurs), Kenny Tudrick (Kid Rock, Detroit Cobras), John Krautner (The Go), Joey Mazzola (Sponge, Detroit Cobras), Danny Methric (The Muggs, The Paybacks), Loretta Lucas (Sisters Lucas) and Ross Westerbur providing support.
