His debut album was called LET ME SING! Life, Love and All That Jazz, and two weeks as the number one album on HMV’s Jazz Chart. He released the jazz album Feeling Good – with Nathan Hartono in 2011. His third album, released in 2012, was a departure from his usual jazz work, exploring acoustic pop and folk style.
In 2013 Nathan released his self titled EP and it is a collection of 5 original songs written and composed by him. Hailed as one Singapore’s most promising young talents, Nathan takes a departure from his usual jazz roots. These songs see an exploration of acoustic pop and folk stylings to tell intimate stories of life and love.
