His influences are many, but none more profound than the music and techniques of guitar masters such as Michael Hedges, Pat Metheny, Carlos Montoya, Eddie Van Halen, Andres Segovia and countless others.

Nathan Gangadean was born and raised in the Philadelphia area, exposed to many styles of music growing up. The landmarks of his musical passion were always related to the power of music as a message. At three years old, We Are The World made a deep impression. At 9 years old, Black or White awakened a passion to sing it loud to the world. At 11 years old, he found his inner rocker with Nirvana, STP, Green Day, Offspring, and Aerosmith. At 12 he asked his parents for piano lessons as he discovered how it can evoke such powerful emotions, influenced by such artists as Danny Wright and George Winston. By 14 he began teaching himself guitar. At the same time, he was awakened to the power of music as a message via the Forest Gump soundtrack which ignited his interest in the revolutionary music of the 60s and 70s. This is when he discovered John Lennon Imagine in his parents record collection which was the birth of his conscious desire to create powerfully pertinent music. The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, the Police, and later on Seal, Peter Gabriel, Jamiroquai, Bjork, Daft Punk and more recently, Michael Franti played huge roles in awakening Nathan to the unlimited Power of Music. He began writing songs in 2000. Shortly thereafter, Nathan left College at Temple University where he was majoring in Theatre and moved to Sedona, Arizona to fully pursue his spiritual growth and discover his musical voice. Over the last 10 years, while teaching Yoga and guiding Sedona visitors on the magical land of Sedona, Nathan has accumulated much experience performing live, both in solo and in band settings in numerous kinds of venues all over the country and to all different audiences with overwhelming positive response. He took classes online at Berklee College Of Music to learn song production, engineering, and music business. Nathan has also produced with industry veterans such as Gardner Cole, Michael Lattanzi, Tim Pierce, and Ramy Antoun. Saith landed his first record deal in 2005 which generated his Alternative Pop Rock album, Step Outside, which was released the summer of 2008. After leaving that record label in 2009, Nathan Entered the Northern Arizona Singer/Songwriter Competition and won 1st place and has since recorded his new single "Now's The Time" with Michael Lattanzi. This song took home first prize in the 2010 eSongwriter Competition! Nathan has since also created his own Label/Publishing Company, Saith Music LLC, and has been actively composing and producing his songs in his home based music studio ever since.
Eddy Barattini is an amazing drummer who has played with Ritchie Havens, Stanley Jordan, Chris Spheeris and countless others.
