Artist Website

Established in 2001, Nate Myers & The Aces performs to a variety of audiences in the Mid-Atlantic US: private parties, college campuses, concert halls, nightclubs and outdoor festivals. Lead by vocalist Nate Myers and his harmonica, the band creates a loose, casual atmosphere in which everyone can relax and have a good time! Whether the audience prefers to sit back and listen or get up and “shake that thang,” there is something for everyone. On a typical evening, audiences can hear influences from many forms of American music – blues, funk, hip hop, rockabilly, country and improvisation. Nate Myers & The Aces take all these styles they love and weave them into a tapestry of their own.

 

The band has released five full length CDs to date, starting with their first self-produced CD, “Rise Above It” (2002). In August 2004, the group traveled to Clarksdale, MS, to experience music they love first hand. While in Mississippi, they went to work in the studio with producer/musician James “Jimbo” Mathus (Squirrel Nut Zippers, Buddy Guy, Tri-State Coalition) and called upon the raw and traditional Delta sounds they absorbed. The result was “The Lonesome Plowboy.” Released in the following December, it contains original material from the band and features guest appearances from W.C. Handy Award winner Big Jack Johnson (Big Jack Johnson & The Oilers, The Jelly Roll Kings) and Jimbo Mathus. The track “Chuck Taylor” was featured in the independent film, “The Electric Fire Hydrant” (Last Exit Films), winner of the Excellence In Cinema Award for short film at the 2006 New York International Independent Film & Video Festival. In 2005, NM&A released a live CD – “Merc Ace 13 Music Co.” – with tracks taken from performances in ’04-’05. In May 2008, the band released its fourth CD, “Persist.” This collection of original music displays the band’s growth in songwriting and ability to infuse traditional styles with a fresh, modern sound.

 

“Live On Derry Street” was released in 2010 and is available through the band’s website as a free download to thank their loyal fans, as well as welcome new ones!

 

The band is currently finishing up their sixth full length release – titled “It’s My Music” – and is set for release in early 2013.
