18 year old Nathan Hawes’ brand new 5 track EP, I Wasn’t There, was released last month on Friday February 12th. This new material has peaked at number #5 on the iTunes charts, and can be found online at: itunes.apple.com/au/artist/nathan-hawes/id950346530
Producer Jan Skubiszewski (Jackson Jackson, Way of the Eagle, Dan Sultan), has captured Hawes’ vision for I Wasn’t There, featuring the beautiful complexities of the guitar melodies and the singers’ smooth vocals, and embellished them with slide guitar, synths and organ. The pair have continued to work together on some of Nathan’s new material, which lucky audiences members received a taste of during his national tour during January and February this year.
The young singer-songwriter describes his songwriting process saying, “I don’t make a set time to sit down and write new songs, it just happens as a result of something happening in your life. You write it down and it evolves into a song. It’s such a strange process releasing new music to everyone, not knowing what they’re going to think about it.”
With an impressive social media presence, Hawes’ boasts 62k+ followers on Facebook, 125k+ on Instagram, and his YouTube covers combined have in excess of 400,000 views, we are likely to be seeing more of the teen soon.
