Nathan Hamilton is a multidisciplinary artist based in Austin,Texas. As a singer/songwriter he has been performing professionally for more than
20 years. During that time he has released six albums on his own and two as a member of the Good Medicine Band (aka Sharecroppers). He was a winner of the 2000 Kerrville New Folk Award and a Top 5 Finalist in the 2008 Independent Music Awards. Nathan has toured internationally and in 2012 was selected as one of the official City of Austin Music Ambassadors to Oita, Japan as part of the Sister Cities Program.
Nathan is a studied visual artist as well and has shown work in both group and solo shows. He employs a raw and loose-handed aesthetic along with a recycling sensibility. Using old doors, boards, dirt, rope, sticks, house paint, stones
and other salvaged materials, Nathan turns these crudely textural elements into assemblages
and paintings that take on a rough-hewn and contemplative elegance.
