Nate Salmon

Nathan Salman is a singer-songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist who teaches guitar, piano, ukulele, bass, songwriting, and electronic music (synthesizers/sampling/drum programming/etc.).

After graduating from UC Berkeley in 2011 with a degree in music, Nathan recorded, released, and toured his self-produced debut LP, Nowhere Now, under the name Waterstrider. The release caught the attention of noted producer Brian Burton (a.k.a. Danger Mouse) who subsequently signed Nathan to both his Columbia Records imprint, 30th Century Records, and publishing company, Figure 8 Publishing. Waterstrider has played alongside The Pixies, Miike Snow, Toro Y Moi, Bombino, Gardens & Villa, Big Black Delta, and Diane Coffee among many others. Recently returned to the Bay Area, Nathan is currently exploring new lyrical and sonic landscapes for his second full-length record.
