For Louisiana-raised writer/producer Nate Bosley, making an album of shameless electropop was no accident. After finding early success on successful projects including the second installment of Disney’s High School Musical in 2007 and Warner Bros.’ Another Cinderella Story in 2008, Bosley received a crash course in working with some of the hottest acts in music, while learning the rules of engagement for crafting pop music.
With influences ranging from Genesis to Jamiroquai, Chromeo to ELO, Daft Punk to Hall and Oats; there is no genre left uncharted with Bosley. His musical journey began working with mentor Dexter Redding back in Orlando, FL in 1999. "Dexter looked just like his dad and it took a while for me to get used to that, but he was the first one to teach me about what a song needed to be: that feeling – the unspoken language of pop." In 2004, Bosley made the move to Los Angeles to take his productions to the next level.
From Earth: The Album
Originally conceptualized as a way to get songs on the fast track to commercial licensing and placement, becoming an artist happened out of pure necessity. Bosley recalls, "I was having way too much fun in the studio. I looked around and I was the only one in the room, so I just kept going."
Starting by covering an all-time favorite by legendary writer/producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, 'I Didn't Mean to Turn You On' was the first song to really get the process going, Bosley says. A bold move for a new artist. "That was the beginning and after that I was hooked. I had to finish the concept". The Apocalyptic love song 'The End of Time' makes a keen observation on current events and asks big questions about the human condition. "I can't lie, I was afraid of that song for months after I wrote it. I was sure I couldn't pull it off, but I think it does what it's supposed to do, and that's to think." Overall, the album, while playful at times, contains songs with a positive message, something Bosley feels strongly about.
On why he decided not to hire professional singers, Bosley explains, "I was looking at some of my favorite DIY artists at the time who happened to also be producers and DJs, namely Calvin Harris and Sam Sparro, and what they were doing really changed everything… I found a way to make music I really loved with enough pop edge to cross over and I realized a good song is a good song, no matter the artist or genre.”
Twelve years into his versatile music career, Bosley still has the same zest and enthusiasm for his work as he did in the beginning. "Whether it's producing and writing with other artists or cultivating my own brand of newfound artistry, I'm ready for the world.”
Bosley is currently collaborating with Platinum-selling songwriters and producers on projects for 2011.
The album From Earth was written, composed, produced, engineered and mastered entirely by Bosley using no Auto-Tune. Okay, maybe just a smidge… okay, a lot.
