I am so excited about this new connection I have with South African musician Nate Maingard. I came across him sort of peripherally via this video from Patreon, and then we had a mini-conversation in the comments of a Patreon post which then led me to his Patreon page where I fell in love with his work and his great spirit. Nate has been playing guitar, writing songs and appearing on stage since 1998 and has been playing as a professional musician since the beginning of 2011. Nate was awarded a South African National Arts Festival Ovation Award and has played many of South Africa’s festivals.
Nate and I got into a great conversation about creating art and exchanging with our audiences that was incredibly timely for me.

This is a perfect time to become a patron of Nate’s, he is working on a new EP and planting TREES! Support his work here.
