Nate Sabat

Bassist / Vocalist / Songwriter / Arranger

Nate Sabat is a JUNO-nominated bassist, vocalist, songwriter, and arranger currently based in Brooklyn, NY. He is a founding member of award-winning bluegrass band Mile Twelve. A native-New Yorker, he attended LaGuardia High School as a vocal principal and went on to study upright bass at the Berklee College of Music. He has performed on stages throughout Europe, Japan, New Zealand, Australia, Canada, and the United States. It’s the wide variety of musical roles that he has played — bandleader, band member, sideman, chorus and orchestra member, music director, arranger — that gives him his unique musical perspective and voice. And it’s the teachers and mentors he’s learned from — GRAMMY winners Latin jazz pianist Arturo O’Farill, cellist/conductor Eugene Friesen, guitar virtuoso Julian Lage and MacArthur fellow Francisco J Núñez, to name a few — that have helped him craft and hone that voice.

Nate has written vocal music for NPR’s Radio Lab, written string arrangements for the Heifetz International Music Institute, and written songs that are in rotation on Sirius XM’s Bluegrass Junction channel. The debut project under his own name, Walking Away, was released in the fall of 2018. Roots music journal No Depression says, “…it becomes clear that within only six tunes, Sabat has effectively constructed a short but dense epic through the mind of a man looking to forgive his past and travel fearlessly into his future”. At the core of a rock project, it draws from influences as wide as the Stanley Brothers, Dvořák, Joni Mitchell and XTC.
