Band name
Biography

Nathan Coles Outfit played its first show together at the 2004 Hillside Festival in their hometown of Guelph, Ontario. Since then, the band has played wherever and whenever possible, crossing Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia thus far to play different rooms and festivals. They have shared stages with some excellent musicians and old and new friends, including Jim Guthrie, Clark the Band, Constantines, Great Lake Swimmers, Sea Snakes, Jon-Rae Fletcher, Snailhouse, Al Tuck, Peter Elkas, Ben Gunning, Cuff the Duke, Matthew Barber, Dave Clark, and Gentleman Reg among others. On the strength of Nathan Coles’ songwriting, bassist Chris Hierlihy, guitarist Jordan Howard, and drummer Vish Khanna have become a tight quartet, gaining an excellent reputation for their spirited live performances. While Coles earned great praise for his independently released solo ep, Bird (2003), he always hoped to record an album with a full band. With the Outfit assembled, the boys spent most of 2005 with producer Don Kerr (Ron Sexsmith, Rheostatics) working on their debut album, Twelve Upheavals that Brought the Redwoods to Flight, which was released to great acclaim on Facehead Records in November, 2005. Now that this record is out, Nathan Coles Outfit will get back to writing more songs and playing a lot more shows.
