This episode of Sharkey’s Treehouse takes us backstage at The Voice to meet drummer extraordinaire Nate Morton. His resume has a list of superstar performers — Cher, Madonna, Paul Stanley, Vanessa Carlton and many more. His career began after attending Berklee College of Music in Boston when he went on tour as the drummer for Faye Wong, a superstar performer from China.
Besides being drummer for The Voice band, he also has a side project with his band Fraudprophets. Their new album Poptosis will be out in June 2019 and you’ll get to hear some of those songs in this podcast; I’m honored to preview it for you here.
In this episode Nate talks about playing for The Voice, his first “big” gigs, keeping personal and professional balance and his crowning achievement — trust me when I say you will never guess what that is. He also gives us his philosophy on playing songs faithfully, note-for-note, and why he’s not being paid to play the drums.
