Nathan Seeckts is a powerful singer songwriter who effortlessly fuses the sounds of Americana, folk, country and blues delivered with a commanding voice that is equal parts gravel and passion.
His songs feature intricate, heartfelt storytelling that echo loudly and honestly from personal experience.Taking inspiration from the songbooks of artists including Bruce Springsteen, Jason Isbell, Lucero and Steve Earle, his songs could find him comfortably at home in any bar from Melbourne to Memphis.
Honing his sound through bars and stages across Australia and North America, appearances at Queenscliff Music Festival, Tamworth Country Music Festival and Melbourne’s Poison City Weekender under his belt, Seeckts has also supported many fine Australian artists including;The Teskey Brothers, Archie Roach, You Am I, Tex Perkins, Cash Savage and Raised By Eagles,& international luminaries including Joe Pug, Big Country,Courtney Marie Andrews & Deer Tick.
As a musician, singer and songwriter, Nathan Seeckts has undertaken his own creative journey, across three formative EPs before arriving on his first mountaintop – the acclaimed debut album The Heart Of The City in 2019. That record cemented Seeckts as one of the most exciting new voices on the Australian Americana landscape and received a nomination for Country Album of The Year at the 2019 Music Victoria Awards,
He can strip a song back to acoustic guitar and that show-stopping voice or lace it with ragged electric guitar and a rock-leaning rhythm section and find equal amounts of power and immediacy in the music. That range and duality is key to Seeckts’ world-class songwriting ability and the acclaim he’s received for The Heart Of The City.
The Heart of The City received widespread radio airplay on shows and stations including Double J, Twang on RRR, ABC Evenings, Acid Country and 5 Feet High & Rising on PBS. It was added to rotation on ABC Country where it remained one of the top 10 most played songs on the station for three months.
Seeckts also plays a role in spreading the music of others with his radio show Last Night In Town which will reach its 200th episode later this year! Broadcast locally on 94.7 The Pulse FM, the show is also part of the global Blues and Roots Radio network.
A decade into his recording career, one of Australia’s most passionate and heartfelt songwriters is set to embark on the next chapter of his musical adventure – completing the writing of album number two and returning to the road with songs and guitar in hand.
