NathanAnthony is a complex emcee/producer originally from San Diego, California and currently residing in Long Beach. In 2001 he was introduced to spoken word poetry, and, as a hip hop fan, was intrigued by the poets’ ability to play with words and rhythm; and, being that the beat was stripped away, found a heightened love for lyricism. Inspired by what he saw at the open mic, he went home and scribbled a few decent poems and has been writing into the wee hours of the night since.
NathanAnthony released his debut solo album behind my eyelids in March of 2012 and, one year earlier, released thePiecemakers’ The Golden Era Mixtape alongside PAZ-1, under the moniker KnewBalance (his emcee name as one of thePiecemakers).
NathanAnthony is a child of God, husband to Hanan, father to Malakai, and is currently teaching high school English to 10th, 11th and 12th graders in Los Angeles, the creative director of Soul Anchor Collective, working on thePiecemakers’ first ep, EP-1 (prod. by D.Levon), working on his sophomore album behind my ribcage (prod. by D.Levon) as well as a solo ep titled Bread & Butter (prod. by Josiah Panella). 2012 and 2013 proved to be a huge year for NathanAnthony and SAC, and 2014 is only looking better!
