Nate Amor’s music is a combination of lyrics that evoke emotion and harmonies that take the listener to another place, all delivered by a soulful performer with a powerful ‘whiskey dust’ voice. His new single, “Gone,” is the first song to be released from his EP currently in production for a launch in Spring 2020.
Nate Amor's desire to be a singer/songwriter started at age 16 when his mother got him "Sing Like the King" music for their karaoke machine. This passion was fueled by winning a high school talent show, and even landed him an appearance on NBC’s The Voice. He has been a fixture in the Minneapolis-St. Paul music scene since his debut album in 2001, Long Five Days. Formerly known as Nathan Anderson or the Nathan Anderson Project, he has recorded three more albums, plus several singles.
While all of these experiences shaped Nate’s sound and direction as a singer/songwriter, several devastating losses from 2014 to 2017 had a major impact on the artist he is today. Nate experienced what felt like a death of his old self and a rebirth of a new one surrounded by love. Hence the name Amor, which is inspired by the Latin word amare which means “to love.”
In addition to working on his new EP, Nate is currently touring with the west coast cast of Trans-Siberian Orchestra for the 2019 Winter Tour: The All-New ‘Christmas Eve and Other Stories.’
