Gonzalez is no stranger to the Philadelphia local music scene. Known as a behind-the-scenes player, Nate has provided instrumentation on more than 50 different local albums. He has shared the stage with many local artists including: John Francis, Ross Bellenoit, Johnny Miles, Chris Kasper, Ben Arnold, Adrian Reju and more! Nate brings a tasteful blend of acoustic blues, soul, gospel, and rock to his repertoire of songs as well as the artists he supports.
Nate works full-time as a music therapy instructor and case manager for (PDDC) Philadelphia Developmental Disabilities Corporation, a non-profit organization benefiting people with disabilities. He teaches weekly classes that integrate consistent and patient instruction, free play and group jam sessions. Nate’s goal is to bring these individuals out of their shell to a place of connection with others. This method of teaching has seen much success and has enriched many attendees.
An accomplished musician and singer/songwriter in his own right, Nate has inspired many program participants at PDDC to step out of their comfort zone to audition and perform regularly. Ferdinand Beltran, a dedicated drum student has agreed to showcase some of his skills on drums supporting Nate at the 2013 Philadelphia Honey Festival. This will be his first time performing live outside of the organization
