Nate Walka

The makings of a superstar can be comprised of many elements – talent, innovation, looks, ingenuity and swagger. Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter Nate Walka encompasses them all. A native of Memphis who now resides in Atlanta, Nate fuses retro 80’s hip pop with the current sounds of the times, adding his unique edge reminiscent of N.E.R.D and Kanye West.  Nate’s songwriting ingenuity landed him his first placement on Oscar and Grammy Award winner, Jamie Foxx’s Intuition with the single “Blame It” featuring T-Pain. For 14 weeks, “Blame It” held the #1 position on the Billboard Top 100 and broke national records. Nate continued to break records by landing another placement, penning, “Say Aah” for R&B star, Trey Songz’ Ready. “Say Aah” peaked at #3 on the Billboard Charts and reached Gold Status, becoming Songz’ first single to do so.  The success of these two singles and the “Blame It” sample on Kid Cudi’s “Make Her Say,” garnered five Grammy Nominations for Nate including: Best Contemporary R&B Album, Best Contemporary R&B Album, Best R&B Song, Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals and Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group. Nate's musical journey has led him to collaborate with some of the most talented and diverse producers in the business; Chuck Harmony, Stargate, C-Note, Bei Major, Chris Henderson, Bryan Michael Cox as well as mentor Kendrick Dean. His ever growing demand as a writer has garnered the attention of international superstars Rihanna, Travis Barker (Blink 182), Bizarre (D12) & Tech n9ne, Jesse McCartney, Flo Rida and Lupe Fiasco.
