With a voice Lionel Richie of
American Idol called “a cannon,” Nathan Walton has become “an indisputable star here in our community” and Staff Pick for Best Solo Musician in Revue Magazine’s “2021 Best of the West” issue. According to Revue contributing editor, Eric Mitts, “Walton has shone bright. Sure, his powerful, soulful vocals draw most of the attention, but it’s his prolifically diverse songwriting and passion behind the scenes that make him an increasingly
major part of the music scene, and an artist everyone should know.”
Nathan appeared on Season 3 of ABC’s American Idol, where he received a Golden Ticket and competed in Hollywood with talented vocalists from all over the country. West Michigan’s original soul-rocker, Walton fronts his band, The Remedy, and has recently assembled the “super-group” King Possum with other well-known local multi-instrumentalists. He regularly lends his powerful voice to bands like Stone Soup and the Broken Teeth, and with special guests at his Greyline Brewing residency. Walton has mastered albums at Jack White's Third Man Record Company in Detroit and recorded his freshman album Nathan Walton and The Remedy at Third Coast Recording Co. in Grand Haven.
Committed to helping musicians and others in the community, Nathan has performed for the Michigan Musician Alliance’s “Michigan Artist Relief Fund” and WZZM’s “13 Food for Families” campaign. He also serves as Music Director for Elevator a GoGo, a West Michigan-based platform to discover music, the spoken word, and performance artists from America and around the world.
