As the youngest son of a trumpet playing band teacher and a flautist/pianist, Nathan’s destiny seemed clear from a young age. Inspired by Chuck Mangione’s “Feel So Good,” he vowed to become a world-class trumpet player and musician.

Today, Nathan Samuelson is a passionate musician with a love for blending the timeless melodies of jazz with a modern pop/rock twist and with a Jazz Performance Diploma from Grant MacEwan University under master teacher Dominic Spera, who played trumpet for Henry Mancini and Burt Bacharach, it’s no surprise that he’s fully embodied that world-class musician he vowed to be.

Nathan’s music has graced stages around the world, with legends like late soul icon Clem Curtis of “Build Me Up, Buttercup”, Leanne Mitchell, the first series winner of The Voice UK, and international soul singer Lloyd Wade, to even collaborating with Phil Lovett, CEO of P. Lovett Productions (known for Stevie Wonder and Brian McKnight).

In August 2018, after dedicating nearly two decades to his craft, Nathan proudly launched his genre-blending masterpiece, debut album, “City Lights Ahead.” Serving as a heartfelt love letter to the open sea, his close-knit family, and his personal journey in search of love, meaning, and self-discovery, he showed the world that not only is he that world class musician, he’s also a world class composer who leaves you with the starry embrace of the shore after a dark, stormy night.
