Upstate NY born and raised; Nate Michaels has always been a person that strives to be creative. He has a deep passion for music. He writes his own original music and has it on platforms such as iTunes, Amazon, and Spotify. A full-time musician since 2017, he plays all over the Finger Lakes Region. Country music is his main focus, but has all kinds of music in his repertoire ranging from classic rock, to oldies! He also has a unique way of getting a “full band” sound using live looping, despite being a solo act.
Influences: 90’s alternative rock such as the Gin Blossoms, Green Day, and Foo Fighters. Country music artists such as Kenny Chesney and Brad Paisley have also impacted the style, and content of his writing.
“I just want to write meaningful music that really catches the ears and hearts of whomever is listening” ~ Nate Michaels

Introducing Corey Comer, singer, songwriter, musician, and producer of original music. He is based out of a small town called Newark NY. but trust me, his voice and stage presence is anything but small. The audience is immediately drawn in from the first note and his lyrics are simply Brilliant. He is influenced by such great soulful singers as David Ruffin of the Temptations, Teddy Pendergrass, Marvin Gaye, Ottis Redding, and Sam Cooke, many of which are covered in his live performances. He quotes “Soulful music has taken a big loss recently with the passing of such great talents as Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin, Bobby Caldwell, and Bill Withers”. With such big name drops as these, it’s no wonder why they call him The Soulful Showman.
