"Nathan Pope's 'I'm Not Alone' EP shows both accomplishment and the promise of more. His guitar playing is astounding, his songs are cleverly written and arranged, and his singing sounds like what he is -- a young man singing from his heart. The production sonics are exciting too. Nathan is well on his way already."

~ Bob Margolin (Muddy Waters Band '73 - '80)

Nathan Pope from North Carolina...He’s only 15 and he’s like the second coming of Joe Bonamassa.”

The Nathan Pope Band. I've seen the "next wave" of musicians that are coming. It's going to be ok people, the CRAP will fade and be replaced with real talent! Please support this band if you have a chance.

There IS hope for performance based music ... especially the blues.
