Nathan Lawr & The Minotaur Orchestra

On his first solo album, "The Heart Beats A Waltz", this former Royal City drummer debuted his song writing skills to enthusiastic response. It was a spectacular collection of rootsy, heartfelt tunes blistering with desolation and mystery.

On the release of that record, Nathan began performing with his live rock band, The Minotaurs, playing to a sold out room at NXNE as well as touring with the likes of Jim Guthrie and opening for folks like Sarah Harmer and the Arcade Fire. Nathan also staged a performance of the 13 piece group called The Minotaur Orchestra which was recorded by the CBC and released as a limited edition EP. The concert was a bold experiment featuring 12 songs (new songs as well as reconfigured older ones) endowed with shimmering strings and horns.
