Nathan Long is a songwriter whose recipe is equal parts theology and poetry. His newest album, Progress, touches on topics like technological obsession, sex in advertising, and the role of faith in obedience, bringing the words of Christ to bear on everyday issues. As an independent artist, Nathan has had the honor of opening for musicians like worship leader Matt Papa and accomplished songwriters like Tony Arata. Following several successful home and live recording releases, Nathan teamed up with Nashville producer Stephen Gause to record Progress, his first full-production album. Nathan's musical influences include early Counting Crows, Rich Mullins, Paul Simon and Derek Webb.
