Nate has been studying and performing saxophone in a myriad of styles for almost twenty years. He has a MMus in Saxophone Performance and a BMus in Secondary Music Education from the University of Calgary, as well as a BEd in Secondary Music Education from the University of British Columbia. Since returning to Calgary in 2014, Nate has been working up the ranks of the city’s jazz scene, sharing the stage with such acts as JUNO-nominated vocalist Heather Bambrick, local chantuese Ellen Doty, and Ironwood mainstays The Prime Time Big Band. His hard work culminated in the recording of the Nate Waters Quartet’s “Fact Contrafact” EP, an exploration of supplanting new melodies onto the extant chord progressions of classic jazz and songbook standards. By manipulating the function of something familiar, Nate strives to educate listeners on the inner machinations of bebop while introducing them to his playful and off- kilter compositional and improvisational style.
