Booking & Publicity:



“I was impressed with Nate personally: he seemed kind and smart and funny. Now I’m impressed with his new Shiny Shiny Black music. The songs, in this case, fit the man.” – Will Kimbrough, Singer-Songwriter, Award-winning Multi-instrumentalist

“With bigger ideas come bigger sounds and SSB has gone big. An enveloping cinematic production wrapped around six road-trip ready songs. If only it was a full length… what the hell, play it twice.” – MP Cavalier, DoItIndy Radio Hour

“Every tune serves the moment that they were written for and this EP is a subtly crafted masterpiece in respects to that. Revealing its charms upon repeated listens. The arrangements are smart and at times captivating. The guitar sound is pure ear candy to me, reminiscent of REM, Petty, and Smiths.” – Ben Cannon, Spark Joy Music

“Shiny Shiny Black’s Wild Edges EP shines a light on the worry, fear, angst, & joy that is present in all of us. They do this with skilled pop/rock tunes that help us articulate the emotions within ourselves. They bring home the fact that “All we have is love.”  Wild Edges is a work of non-fiction. You should experience it.” – Scott Curtis, Michiana People Podcast

“On my way home, that sound is unmistakable.” – Benjamin Gooding, fan

“This material is just brimming with Americana, surf swells, and healing lyrics. Just wait…” -Tim Bushong, T. Bush Recording
