Born and raised in northeast Wisconsin, indie-folk singer/songwriter Nathan Mathes spent a number of years fronting bands in the Green Bay area before releasing his first solo album in 2010.

Mathes has played extensively throughout Wisconsin and the Midwest, and his music has been used in a number of independent films, national television shows, and national radio shows, with placements on TBS, MTV, HBO, VH1, PBS, NPR, Netflix, Apple TV, and more.

These days Mathes spends as much time writing and recording his own music as he does playing in The Crushers (formerly The Buffaloes, and before that The 90s), a heavy metal band with his five-year-old drummer son, Julian.
