Anyone who has not been living under a rock can recognize the signature sounds of beloved Stevie Wonder songs, such as “Do I Do,” “Sir Duke,” “Higher Ground,” and “Superstition.” Nate Watts has been providing signature bass lines alongside music legend Stevie Wonder since 1974. This dynamic duo makes for quite a show and if you’ve ever seen them live in concert, you couldn’t possibly disagree.
“Nathan would stroll over to Motown’s Hitsville Studios to watch through the basement window as the Funk Brothers worked their magic. Another passion was the rock & roll of Jimi Hendrix, Deep Purple, Rare Earth, Mahogany Rush, and Steppenwolf, many of whom played at the nearby Grande Ballroom–a rock club in the middle of the ghetto.” (From natewatts.com)
Born and raised in Detroit, Nate was immersed in arguably the best musical era the world has ever heard. We recently caught up with him in Anaheim to get a video interview. Enjoy!
