Nathan Carter is a sensation! In Ireland he outsold One Direction, Pharrell Williams and Michael Buble, becoming the first country act to reach number one in the Irish charts since Garth Brooks.
He is an exciting feature on the UK Country scene, and once again tops the Irish charts with his fifth album ‘Where I Wanna Be’ which features his unique blend of Celtic, country and pop! Not bad for the cherubic former head choir boy who sang for Pope John Paul ll in Rome.
Nathan was born on 28th May 1990, growing up in Liverpool. His family originates from Newry in County Down. He soon leaned to play the accordion with trips to Ireland to compete in Fleadh Ceoil beconing a regular feature of young Nathan’s life. By the age of 12, he won All Ireland medals for singing and playing the accordion.
Nathan soon became a member of the Liverpool Ceili band, playing accordion and piano, and performed solo pieces across Liverpool and Ireland.
On a trip to Donegal in 2009, Nathan was appearing in concert in Buncrana, where he met with songwriter John Farry. So impressed was Farry that representation soon followed and the rest, as they say, is history.
