Nathan Oliver is a musical collective revolving around the songwriting of Chapel Hill’s Nathan White. They have recorded two albums both released on Pox World Empire: Nathan Oliver (2007) and Cloud Animals (2009). One reviewer cited “wherever Nathan Oliver goes, fun and weirdness prevail…a dark, sarcastic but strangely fun and inviting humor surrounds the band and its popish-alternative sound” (Encore Magazine). We thought that was pretty dead on. Local musicians contributing to Nathan Oliver recordings and live shows include John Harrison (North Elementary), Mas Sato (The Sames), Garrison Locke, John Tokarczyk, Reid Johnson (Schooner), Billy Alphin (Schooner, Rosebuds), Tripp Cox, Wes Phillips (Ticonderoga), and many more.
