Nate Morton
The Voice - United States


"Bottom line is, I hit things with sticks for a living, and that's a pretty fun job."

As graduate of the renowned Berklee College of Music, Nate Morton brings a definite wild side to his esteemed musical pedigree. A chief example is one of Nate's primary influences--Animal from "The Muppets." He also cites both his parents and his first drum instructor, Grant Menfree as important support during his early musical years.

Such an intriguing brew of inspiration resulted in Nate's noteworthy accomplishments which include his gig on "Rock Star" and currently "Rock The Cradle", but also serving as drummer for artist Vanessa Carlton, his two years of work with jazz great Natalie Cole and touring with Chaka Khan and Poe. He also performed with Madonna at the 2002 Grammy Awards, and a national tour with the "American Idol" band.
