Nathan McEuen concert

with Natalie Gelman
Saturday, July 1, 7pm

Nathan McEuen has written 100's of songs and independently produced six albums, with combined album sales of over 60,000 copies... his career so far has been filled with over 2,500 live shows across the U.S.A., Canada & Europe including: The Grand Ole Opry (3 times), American Idol (w/ Steve Martin), The Tonight Show (w/ Hanna-McEuen), Music City Roots, XM/Sirius Radio, The Stagecoach Festival, and composing/performing an original music score for a series of performances for USC's theater production of William Shakespeare's - Romeo & Juliet (November 2016).
     Nathan's first big solo performance happened around his 15th birthday when he was asked by his father John McEuen (of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band) to sing and play guitar at the Olympic Bid Party for the International Olympic Committee in Salt Lake City (March 1995)… It wasn't until 15 minutes before 'downbeat' when Nathan realized he'd be performing outdoors at the Gallivan Center for over 15,000 people and opening for John Denver...
     Through the years Nathan has opened for, performed with artists such as: Jim Messina, Dave Mason, Chris Hillman, Dwight Yoakam, Carrie Underwood, Brad Paisley, Lyle Lovett, Bon Jovi, Leon Russell, Steve Martin, John Oates, Willie Nelson, John Denver, David Crosby, Graham Nash, Brett Dennen, Kenny Loggins, The Dillards, Jaime Hanna & Jonathan McEuen (aka Hanna-McEuen), Riders in the Sky, Billy Bob Thornton, John Carter Cash, and more...

     Often compared to Sheryl Crow, Jewel and Joni Mitchell, Natalie Gelman’s music is contemporary and timeless. She writes honest, heartfelt songs - responding to current affairs and revealing parts of her inner self with the world. A modern day troubadour, Natalie performs across the country and recently completed her first 10 week European tour. A New York busker at heart, she continues to play what she calls her favorite stage while also performing at the House of Blues, Webster Hall and festivals across the country. NatalieGelman.com
