Nate Maingard is a National Arts Festival 2012 Ovation Award Winner. He has spent the past couple of years performing in the UK, Europe and America as well as cultivating his online community of followers. He is in the global top 500 creators on the online platform Patreon, a Gold VIP Periscoper, a Sofar Sounds Alumni artist, guest lecturer at SAE and YouNow Livestreaming Partner.

Being a master at holding an interactive and authentic performance space as well as being a highly-inspirational motivational speaker in the areas of entrepreneurship, leadership and collaboration, Nate’s performance is uniquely positioned to be accessible to both schools and corporate events as a form of musical team-building for groups of people. On the traditional performance circuit, Nate tailors his own intimate and bespoke performances in unusual venues and has featured on festival stages such as River Republic and Little Gig.

Growing up in his father’s guitar-making workshop, modern troubadour and singer-songwriter Nate Maingard naturally arrived at crafting his own instrument and award-winning musical style to go with it. His guitar accompanies him in heartfelt songs, which gently illuminate and fiercely celebrate the archetypal journeys we all share as humans. Nate is a breath of fresh air and an exciting artist to experience, whether at his live shows or talks, through listening to one of his albums or by connecting with him online.

Nate draws his inspiration from the indie-folk movement championed by the likes of Bon Iver, Elliot Smith, Death Cab For Cutie and Tallest Man On Earth, while remaining true to his first loves of the lyrical singer-songwriters of the 60’s, such as John Lennon, Nick Drake, Cat Stevens and Leonard Cohen.

Last night I shared my music with the most incredible gathering of humans, which is no suprise, cos they were all gathered to listen to the inimitable @amandapalmer. Thank you for singing with me, thank you for celebrating with me, thank you for welcoming me with your joyful presence, everyone!

Having been bedridden for over a week with a neck spasm, this was the wildest, most unexpected welcome back to the land of the standing I could never have imagined 😂

@neilhimself, dude, thank you for reading, that was a fucking huge cherry on top.

Speaking of cherries, @misspattymonroe, you are my kind of maletjie!!!

If you were there and wanna get a hold of the music I played while helping me make more, please do join the Patreon, it's a magical place:

Ok, hot pack for my neck and a grin from my heart, catch you on the flip side

First full night's sleep in over a week last night, less pain today😅😁. Seems I've got a bulging/herniated disc in my neck, causing nerve pinching on my right side. Not sure when I'll play music again, but am keeping the faith. Thank you for the flow of supportive messages 💞😍

I know I've been quiet recently. I've been struggling with severe spasms in my neck and shoulder, bedridden for the last week and still deep in it. Grateful to have support of loved ones. Will update you again soon. With love, your wounded troubadour 🤕💝🎶
