"Van Morrison in the Appalachians, Newgrass colliding with the singer/songwriter genre."
â€œNate has a vision and it is a good one! He has truly followed in the tradition of great songwriters. His use of melody and rhythm are a breath of fresh air in this prepackaged pop culture that we live in. He has true feeling and connection with his songs and it is a vibe that the audience picks up on from the first note and keeps them captivated until the last. As a performer, Nate has a confident, yet inviting presence that makes every one in the room (whether itâ€™s 5 or 5000) feel a connection to what he is doing."
"Clendenen's lyrics... have a certain sparse, unpretentious beauty to them."
On Nate's Music - "... when you need to emote, or hear the beauty of music... it's like a river of music... going from the ocean into the rivers, defying gravity..."
