San Francisco-based singer/songwriter, Matt Nathanson is someone whose songs you may already love and just not know he is the man behind the music. With a career spanning nearly 20 years, Nathanson has been transformed into a brilliant songwriter with wonderful stage presence and an irreplaceable sense of humor.
Since Nathanson’s inception into the music world back in 1993, his songs have made their way into multiple television shows from One Tree Hill to Private Practice. Recently, he made an appearance on season 16 of the The Bachelor, where he serenaded Ben Flajnik and Lindzi Cox.
Modern Love, Nathanson’s seventh studio album, was released in June of 2011 and debuted at number 17 on Billboard 200. This album has been making musical waves not only in the Bay area, but has poured over into the east coast as well. Modern Love combines acoustic and electric sounds with provocative lyrics about love and sexuality.
Nathanson’s first single “Faster,” has more than one-million YouTube hits and has made several appearances on Billboard’s Hot 100 charts.
The album also includes “Run,” a single featuring Sugarland. Just this past weekend, Ryan Seacrest aired “Run” on his American Top 40 radio show.
When Nathanson isn’t in the studio making albums, he keeps himself busy being out on the road. He has toured with several of music’s finest, from Jason Mraz to John Mayer, and currently, is out on tour with Kelly Clarkson until mid-April.
Matt Nathanson is truly bringing meaning to the phrase, “The sky’s the limit.” Keep an eye on him in 2012.
