mikebrignac I have been a fan of Nathan's for several years now. I have loved all of his previous work, but this one is my absolute favorite. I haven't found an artist whose work I feel more connected to. I say connected as if there is separation. We are all one. This album touches my deeper, truer self.

saropa The album is great!
The songs are stuck in my head, and I catch myself mumbling and singing the songs during the day.

Really listen to the songs, as the deeper meanings, and the way it is song will heal you. Favorite track: Blur & Blend.

metteeline “Wild & Free” is such a raw and down to earth album. I have had the album on repeat for hours almost every day since it was released. There are songs for every mood. Songs that hit in right in the heart when you are feeling sad and songs that make you wanna dance around like a weirdo. All the songs have especially one thing in common - all the songs feel like Nathan is sitting right next to me telling me all his stories the most beautiful form. Favorite track: Music.

designerdave There's an earnestness to Nate's music that can put the world in perspective. The daily grind and pursuit of wealth can build up, like a toxic ooze that needs to be washed away. I find Wild & Free to be the cleansing rain I need whenever that toxicity builds up, and my life is better for it. ;)

Catherine Music can be a magical experience. For years, Nathan shared his journey of making music and of his life. Always real and raw, and relatable too, we are invited to sit back, slow down and enjoy the little things for a moment. Favorite track: Everything.

Way down there See you walking in the woods Always wandering Searching for a place To rest your head My head's full of locations I imagine you have lain I'm always wandering Seeking all the signs I know you've seen And what they mean... Seek and you shall find Life happens in its own time Seek and you shall find You know and I know, so Seek and you shall find Love happens in its own time Seek and you shall find You know and I know... We're Always wandering Always wandering I've seen some Imprisoned by old secrets They were keeping Blind to all the light that guides their way Oh, what a shame Seek and you shall find Life happens in its own time Seek and you shall find You know and I know, so Seek and you shall find Love happens in its own time Seek and you shall find You know and I know... Always wandering We're always wandering You who walk with courage Through the darkness and the light Always wandering Searching with that smile upon your face For Life's embrace Seek and you shall find Life happens in its own time Seek and you shall find You know and I know, so Seek and you shall find Love happens in its own time Seek and you shall find You know and I know... Always wandering We're always wandering

Every Leaf 03:12
In every leaf a universe In every verse a unity Of leaves and trees and mysteries Oh who knows what it means I am sitting in your shade Filled with gratitude For every leaf you've made The sun is shining bright today So I'll rest a while and Soon I will be on my way In every leaf a universe In every verse a unity Of leaves and trees and mysteries Oh who knows what it means I read futures in their veins Simply telling me that Life always finds a way Until I am back home again I will sit here in wonder learning how to pray In every leaf a universe In every verse a unity Of leaves and trees and mysteries Oh who knows what it means Can it mean what it seems I am all that I have seen Whether sacred or unclean I am part of everything In every leaf a universe In every verse a unity Of leaves and trees and mysteries Oh who knows what it means Who knows what it means Who knows what it means Now look at all these seeds

Music 03:05
All things resonate, from the really small To the extra great, and You are such a melody, that the heavens lean down Just to sing it to me, It's all Music, music x2 Feel this all vibrate from the roots of a tree To the tip of the tongue of a snake Yes we all create, together in love What a song we can make, it's all I know your name Your notes are all interlaced I feel you contained Nothing out of place, it's all Rest, now, little one You're already here, there's no more to be done In the morning, we'll greet the sun And celebrate what a song we have sung, it's all

Eskawaya kayawai, kayawai kiki What you do not eat I will devour Right down to the core Until the seed falls out Sinks into the ground And the tree bursts forth And the fruit falls down In the soft moist loam In the undergrowth Where all creatures know What that seed is worth I will lay me down And I will sink in too Just like the seed I will feed the new And my leaves will wave Hello goodbye Hello goodbye Hello goodbye Yes my leaves will wave Hello goodbye Hello goodbye Hello goodbye Can you hear them... Whispering Their secrets learned From the sun Eskawata kayawai Kayawai Kiki

Did you know the sun is always shining No matter where you stand it's always rising Somewhere in the world Somewhere in the world, the light's alive Time will spin us on the breeze Hope will feed us 'til we're free We are all worth it, we are all worth it We are all Though we know our love is just a drop within the ocean We will never have a doubt about the depth of this emotion Somewhere in the world Somewhere in the world, the light's alive Act upon the words I've said or this is all just in my head But I know the way to you, holding on to all that's true We will find a way to get on through Time it spins us on the breeze Hope it feeds us on the breeze We are all worth it, we are all worth it We are all Time will spin us on the breeze Hope will feed us 'til we're free Somewhere in the world All over the world the light's alive

Wild & Free 03:17
Things in life can get so awfully full of the crazy some days So here a little something that will hopefully he help you on your way I've been singing your song Just in case you might have forgotten You belong, the writer's never wrong So celebrate your life and be reborn We're born to be wild and free Free to breathe To give and to receive Love, in you I do believe From birth to death In this great mystery Don't take it too seriously You're just God unfolding Turn your face to the sun Please remember you have always been the one Now we're learning the names Holy indescribable things Music, magic and dreams Oh, Miracle, I am what I believe! We're born to be wild and free Free to breathe To give and to receive Love, in you I do believe From birth to death In this great mystery Into what happens next In this great mystery

Love Jumps 02:55
Love jumps off my tongue Swims within the ocean Of all the words I've spoken Loving you I though my heart was broken But it had just cracked open To be wide enough to soak in Loving you You are the early morning dew Fresh and sweet and juicy Like peachy creamy...you Yes, you are the definition of you You are serious...ly fun I'd be delighted to laugh with you Until all our day are done And then end on a chuckle cos the love goes on I have made mistakes along the way I know that some of them have caused you pain Now look into my eyes Look into my eyes and you will see That love is the story of you and me
8.
Oh, my emotion You have always been the one Since I met you Fresh to life like morning sun Oh my, fragile When I first held you in my arms My, my, sweet one I fell for all your perfect charms And I'm falling still And I always will Oh my good friend Our road leads ever on Oh my, we've been through Broken home and broken hearts But also so many Wild free days and belly laughs And they're falling still And they always will Oh my good friend Our road leads ever on So simple when we live it like this Oh, when I feel your love with every breath So, I can't wait to see what happens next We'll be falling still Yes we always will Oh my good friend Our road leads ever on

Blur & Blend 03:58
Is this world big enough to hold the tears I've yet to shed I'm not through yet, I'm not through yet Cos I know she can't stand the weight of all we've left unsaid What's unexpressed weighs down into the depths Me and mine Give our time to make amends As the lines Between us blur and blend You are home So stay holy, whole and unrepentant Yes, I said it There's no need to feel ashamed Me and mine Give our time to make amends As the lines Between us blur and blend In the dark Diving deep you'll see the spark becomes a flame 'til you're awake, alive, Burned clean by Love again Me and mine Give our time to make amends As the lines Between us blur and blend

Everything 04:01
I’m just a breeze Just the breathe you take next In your unfolding Look at your wings Open wide, how they shine Lighting up everything I’m just the weeds Pushing up through the cracks In your broken dreams Blossoming 'til your world is filled, with Flowering everything I’m just a weave In the tapestry Called you and me Unravelling, re-Ravelling Forever into everything I’m just what you believe What you give What you receive Reflecting Going out coming in Mirroring everything I'm just unseen If you've been where I've been Damn, that's some rambling Invisibly, Indivisibly Dissolved into everything I’m just a tease Sneakily teasing Your old memories See, see what i mean You have changed You are changing Transforming everything

about

Wild & Free is a raw creation, recorded in one take in the loft of our farm cottage. It is medicine music inviting you close, filled with uplifting and inspiring songs of healing, hope and divine connection. This is for the sensitives, the healing, the healers, the empaths and jesters, the lost and found. This is for you, for me and for all of us. Thank us!

The album offers you some of my most precious and joy-filled songs, including Always Wandering, Music, Everything, Every Leaf and Love Jumps (and more). Songs inspired by plant medicine, Beloved Carly, breathwork, inner healing and gratitude for the Divine Friend.

Thanks to every one of my patrons for making this album possible. Thank you!
