Philip Nathan began teaching himself guitar at the age of 15 in the suburbs of Detroit, Michigan. Influenced by the infamous Slash of "Guns N Roses," he was determined to be a guitar "player." Somewhere along the line, he began a transformation that, to this day, is constantly developing the way that he listens to, composes, and appreciates music across many genres. Philip has dedicated his time and self-disciplined study towards "fingerstyle" folk and bluegrass flatpicking. Constantly inspired by the likes of Leo Kottke or John Fahey(just to name a couple), he is always pickin', grinnin' and searching for his own sound. Hand him a guitar of any persuasion, acoustic, resonator, electric, bass, or hand him banjo, he'll make it sing!
