Nate Maingard

Imagine a room filled with light, over the mountain, and down by the sea. This is where I heard Nate Maingard play on Friday night, in Scarborough. It is the most beautiful setting you could imagine. He played in his family's yoga studio, where he created beautiful sounds, on wooden floors, with ambiance and amazing acoustics. You couldn't ask for more. Nate is Cape Town based singer/ songwriter, in the Indie Folk genre, who spins poetry like it's the easiest thing to do on earth. I think he's my favourite male soloist at the moment, and that's a big statement because, as you know, Cape Town has a hugely talented Indie Folk scene exploding off it's charts. So go on Nate, I look forward to hearing what you create. I know it will be amazing. Listen to my favourite tracks here -

Here are some of my pics from Friday night's gig.


  1. Fiona, you are so incredible, I can't tell you how over the moon I am about this blog post, you frickin' rock my socks off and I am honoured to rock yours off too;).
    Do you mind if I quote some of your words about my music when the opportunity arises?
    See you very soon dear lady!
    Much love

  2. Course you can Nate! That's what a sister is here for. See you soon and happy recording! Fi
