EXPOSURE SERIES ARTIST IN FOCUS : NATE MCBRIDE

 

Born 5 May, 1971 in Spruce Pine, North Carolina, bassist Nate McBride was raised in Seattle and lived there until moving to Boston in 1990 to attend New England Conservatory.  His tenure in Boston saw the beginning of several long-running musical collaborations including work with drummer Curt Newton, guitarist Joe Morris, pianist Pandelis Karayorgis and reedist Ken Vandermark.  Since that period he’s toured widely in the U.S. and Europe with those musicians and others. McBride relocated to Chicago from 2004-2013, and became a lynchpin of the scene there, building lasting relationships with countless musicians there including Dave Rempis, Jason Adasiewicz, Mike Reed, Jeff Parker, Hamid Drake, and many others. Some of his working bands during that period included mi3; Tripleplay; Spaceways, Inc., FME, The Frame Quartet, Sun Rooms, and the Engines.  His return to Boston in 2013 rejuvenated his relationships with musicians there including fellow Chicago ex-pat Jeb Bishop, Pandelis Karayorgis, Luther Gray, and Jorrit Dijkstra. He has appeared on record or in concert with a variety of other improvisers, including Mat Maneri, Joe McPhee, Paal Nilssen-Love, Jim Hobbs, Charlie Kohlhase, Allan Chase, and Satoko Fujii.
