Nathan Muus

His new CD "Seven Little Wonders" has just been released and can be heard and downloaded on SoundClick at Seven Little Wonders.

Nathan grew up in rural Cook County, MN, in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area, where his father was a Lutheran camp director, and urban Minneapolis, where his father ran a youth center. He sang, played piano, guitar, flute and saxophone as a kid in school and church groups. This lead to playing in many diverse groups from folk to Latin to jazz, and of course, R n" B, blues and rock.

Nathanís life has been greatly enriched by his Norwegian and Sami family. He has been the co-editor of Baiki, the International Sami Journal for 15 years, and has performed at many Scandinavian festivals doing Sami Yoik (traditional singing) and original folk music with guitar. Nathan has been fortunate to meet and learn from many Yoik performers visiting North America and visiting Samiland. These experiences are reflected on his first CD, "Seven Little Wonders". He calls this "folk music", " Latin, Saami ní Western Folk Music". He has warmed up Bonnie Rait, Los Lobos and others as band member.

Nathanís ancestral family comes from Snaasa, in Nord Trondelag, and Lofoten area, Norway. You can find his music at nathanmuus.com, and Sami cultural information at Baiki.org.

Nathan is accompanied today by Will Williams, who has backed up Debarge, The Whispers and many others. Enjoy Nathanís mix of Saami, folk and contemporary sounds.
