NATE CLENDENEN is an award-winning bluegrass musician and songwriter. Since the age of fourteen, he has crafted his identity through music, playing every instrument he could get his hands on. Over the years, he has performed with musicians of all genres, finding himself steeped in influences ranging from rock to bluegrass, folk to blues. Music has taken Nate to Australia, Brazil and all corners of the U.S., but this bonafide road warrior hung out with us to discuss songwriting. And sitting behind Henry Miller's desk. Possibly.
You can find Nate on iTunes too.
