Biography

Bassist Nathan Wouters was born into a musical family. At the age of 10 he started to play classical bass at the Music Academy of Merksem. A few years later he was incorporated in the Orchestra of Jeunesse Musicales Antwerp, led by Ivo Venkov.

In 2004 he won first prize in the Live Music Competition, which led to a concert tour in Croatia. After having completed his classical studies he went on to study jazz with Piet Verbist and Nicolas Thys at the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp and then continued his studies at the University of Gothenburg (Sweden) with renowned Anders Jormin as his teacher. He graduated magna cum laude.

Today he is part of the up and coming young jazz scene with soul mates such as Joachim Badenhorst, Alexi Tuomarila, Erik Bogaerts, Bert Cools, Stijn Cools and Christian Mendoza. He toured with the latter with band Banjax in 2013.
