Nate Case
Aus Minnesota, jetzt Heidelberg mit Folk, Country, Americana, Soul, and Rock and Roll

Nate Case was born and raised on the plains of south central Minnesota, USA. As a child of the late 80’s and early 90’s his first cassette tape was Garth Brooks’ sixth studio album “In Pieces” and first CDs were Coolio’s “Gangsta’s Paradise,” and the soundtrack to “Beavis and Butt-Head Do America.” To say these records had an effect on Nate would be a complete understatement, as, unbeknownst to him, he would embark on a life-long pursuit of musical complexity.

Existing inside a fairly typical rural Minnesota childhood, Nate played ice hockey, baseball, and began playing the guitar at age 12. At this point the story develops a bit of a throwback twist, as right around age 12 & 13 Nate and his hockey buddies discovered their fathers’ record collections. Thus began a lasting obsession with Pink Floyd, the Beatles, CCR, Neil Young, The Band, Elton John, Led Zeppelin, Simon & Garfunkel, Willie Nelson, and various other classic rock, country, and folk acts.

During his college years Nate and his various bands (Noble Haze, Heavy J and the Fantastics, Dirty Horse, etc.) channeled their original work through the veins of these classic rock influences and threw wild parties and bar gigs paying homage to the decadence and absurd lifestyles of the rock stars they held in such high regards. Although the stories of Nate and his friends are far less legendary, the amount of good times were far reaching and looked back on by most as some of the best of times.

After many years living, working, and gigging in and around Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, Nate relocated to Heidelberg, Germany to pursue a master’s degree in music therapy. While following this path Nate fell in love with the city and has since dug his heels in to connect with the local scene and bring his personal flavor of folk, country, Americana, soul, and rock and roll.

Nate is a proud ambassador of Minnesota and very happy and lucky to be bringing his songs, stories, and jokes into the center of Europe.
