Music has always been synonymous with community for New Orleans native Nathaniel “Suave” Cameron, Jr. From honing his vocal talents amongst church family as an 8-year-old choir member to earning his place in a historic brotherhood connecting lauded musicians like Jon Batiste, Trombone Shorty, and Terrance Blanchard as a section leader of the St. Augustine Marching 100, the privilege of creating music has always provided Nate with a close-knit group of artists who inspired, educated, and protected each other. Even now, in his role as tour and production manager for Tank and the Bangas, Grammy-nominated winners of the 2017 NPR Tiny Desk Contest and longtime members of Nate’s musical family, his greatest joy is in the moments when they explore the depth of connection music facilitates across country borders and language barriers.
Nate’s personal and professional experiences have proven to him that the connections made and sustained by shared artistic expression are essential to vulnerable communities. These experiences have also equipped him with a unique skillset, one that he has dedicated to a collaboration between artistry and entrepreneurship that will support generational healing and wealth.
