Nathan Quick Has Come a Long Way in a Short Time

Last April, local Americana singer-songwriter Nathan Quick was promoting the release of The Mile, a six-track EP that was nearly two years in the making. Three weeks shy of a year later, he has already returned with new material: another EP to precede a full-length album that is planned for sometime in the "near future."

"Being back home has really helped with being able to write a lot of content and make more music," says Quick, who had just quit the oil-rig business to pursue music full-time when he last spoke with the Press.

"I'm able to play my instrument every day, which is amazing," he continues. "I feel like the guitar is an extremity of my being, and it means a lot to be able to work on my craft more."
