Nate Lee is an International Bluegrass Music Association award-winning instrumentalist and renowned teacher of private lessons and music camps. 

The overlapping landscapes of folk, bluegrass, old-time, and new acoustic music offer a wide field to hoe and singer/mandolinist Nate Lee ably covers every bit of that ground. Tuneful lopes, the muscular bounce of ‘grass, the sparkling charm of Grisman-Rice inspired dawg music, and more are all in his comfort zone and he moves between them with uncommon ease. Nate is known as the kind of musician who is able to put his own stamp on whatever he plays and his forthcoming album, Wings of a Jetliner, brings that home and is set for independent release Spring 2020 on his own Adverb Records.  

Nate is known as a member of award-winning bluegrass group, the Becky Buller Band, which he joined in 2017 and he quickly became a fan-favorite. For this project Nate assembled an inspired collection of iconic players, modern masters, and rising stars—including his bandmates from Becky Buller Band.  

Two-time GRAMMY winning songwriter, eight-time International Bluegrass Music Association award winner, and leader of the band that bears her name, Becky Buller, contributes her fiddle and vocal chops to four of the songs on Wings of a Jetliner. She says, “Nate is an incredible musician and human being. This project really shows the world the depth of his abilities, both as a picker and a singer. I’m so honored to be along for the fun!”

Nate's Gear

Pava Mandolins

Pava Knezevic’s mandolins are known for having sweet, balanced tone, sustain for days, and a monster chop.

"From the first moment I picked up each of my Pava mandolins, I felt like they were built just for me. Pava mandolins sustain for as long as I could possibbly want, and their chop has the authoritative, plosive sound that I can't live without. They really drive a bluegrass band! The big, fat, sustained notes sound so pure, with a full resonant tone that sound struck instead of plucked. Recording and performing with Pava mandolins is a dream, and when I play them I have unlimited options for tone and inflection." - Nate Lee
