ABOUT

25+ years of live performance and studio experience. nathanhaven1 in the world of . BIO: I've been playing in working bands since 1992, starting on drums, but singing always became a responsibility as well. I moved on to studio work in the mid 90's and toured regionally in the late 90's. I moved out front to full-time lead vocals and rhythm guitar in 2000. I started taking 'hired-gun' singing gigs in 2002, then landed a 9-month run with a popular Cincinnati party band in late 2003. I stepped away from music for a couple years and went back to school for my degree in Biomedical Engineering in 2004. After graduating, I got back on stage with a regionally a successful hard rock band THUNDERKISS from 2006-2008, then formed the incredibly talented UNTOLD from 2008-2011. Then I was a founding member of BACKLASH…a killer three year ride (2012-2015); playing approx. 75 shows and opening for major national acts. After moving to the Pacific Northwest in the summer of 2015, I jammed with a psychedelic classic rock band in Olympia for a few months in 2015-2016. Then went on to sing lead and play rhythm guitar for a hard-rock cover band out of the Bremmerton/Port Orchard area for nearly a year. Next was a studio/ gigging band in Tacoma for about 8 months before I moved back to the Greater Cincinnati area. I value my time and efforts…and I will value yours as well.
