Nathan’s compositional versatility is evident in a selection of his work for the small screen. Indulging a love of animation, he co-composed over fifty episodes of Disney’s British Animation Award nominated series ‘101 Dalmatian Street’. In the world of documentaries, Nathan co-scored Netflix’s chilling series ‘The Puppet Master: Hunting The Ultimate Conman’ as well as Channel 4’s prime time feature documentary ‘The Anti-Vax Conspiracy’. He has also collaborated with Andrew Skeet contributing music for several episodes of Amazon Prime’s ‘The Great Escapists’ as well as the ‘Living Donor’ episode of the BAFTA winning series ‘The Surgeon’s Cut’. Delving into the comedy scene, he worked with ‘Fleabag’ producers Two Brothers Pictures scoring BBC Three’s dramedy ‘Dinosaur’ and scored Hat Trick’s teaser ‘Catching The Bus’ starring Jessica Hynes.

Nathan’s debut as a feature film composer, ‘Butterfly Kisses’, won a Crystal Bear at the 67th Berlin International Film Festival. His score was singled out in Peter Bradshaw’s Guardian review and Nathan has since gone on to score several more arthouse features showing at festivals around the world. Nathan has also collaborated with Amelia Warner on her feature projects. He composed additional music and arranged the score as a whole for ‘Mary Shelley’, which was nominated for ‘Discovery of the Year’ at the World Soundtrack Awards. He also arranged and produced Amelia’s score for ‘Wild Mountain Thyme’ which went on to receive another WSA nomination.

After studying music at Oxford University, Nathan’s professional musical journey was kickstarted working as an orchestrator with the brilliant mentorship of Andrew Skeet. Nathan has since contributed orchestrations to over 25 major film and TV productions including the Oscar winning ‘Spiderman: Into The Spiderverse’. Furthering his grounding in top tier filmmaking, Nathan spent time music editing with editorial departments on films such as ‘Paddington 2’ and ‘Sherlock Gnomes‘. He also worked as assistant composer to Daniel Pemberton on several projects, including Warner Brothers’ ‘King Arthur: Legend of the Sword’.

PlayStation, Kew Gardens, ASDA and McDonalds are among the brands that Nathan has worked with in advertising and his track ‘Classically Curious’ won Best Score at the Production Music Awards 2021. Meanwhile, in popular music Nathan has collaborated with Rosie Danvers on arrangements for Kanye West and Madonna, as well as producing and arranging ‘I’ll Be Singing’ featuring Sinéad O’Connor. Nathan also contributed arrangements to Decca’s ‘Bond 25’ album.

Along with a myriad of short films, Nathan started his career composing for theatre. He was nominated for an Off West End Award and specialises in creating music for new writing with shows and workshops at Soho Theatre, Trafalgar Studios, the National Theatre Studio & the Almeida.

Currently based in London, Nathan holds British, North American and German citizenship.
