Nate earned a Bachelor of Music degree from the Berklee College of Music, and studied piano for several years with Boston’s own “jazz guru”, Charlie Banacos. A veteran of the Boston club circuit, Nate started and led the horn/funk band Landlords of Soul, for whom he wrote, arranged and played, as well as the Jazz Avengers. He has also played with Lois Lane and the Daily Planets, Xanna Don’t, Liz English, Nixie Ray and Backtalk and the G-Clefs. Over the last ten years, Nate has had a number of original and cover bands called the Companions, the Nate Aronow Quintet, and now the Nate Aronow Nextet.
As a composer Nate has recorded several CD’s of original music, and three originals have been included on two different Sony/BMG CDs – 2nd Smooth Jazz Avenue and Hot Salsa released in Europe. Nate regularly performs the original repertoire with the Nate Aronow Nextet, and with the newest live project: the Eclectics, a collaboration with Mike Swinchoski and Synthesis.
Nate has also signed licensing agreements with several production music libraries and publishers thathave led to his music being placed and broadcast on Television, Radio and Film in the U.S. and overseas.
