FOR THE ESSENTIAL ADVENTURER

INTERVIEW | NATE LOTZ

Posted on 15 May 2015


Meet Nate Lotz, Drummer of more bands, artists and TV shows than
there are selfies of Miley Cyrus on the internet. From 90120 to the 
All American Rejects and everyone in between, Nate has been all across
the country and the world doing what he loves, which is pretty bad ass. 
I was able to catch Nate in action during SXSW this year, Drumming for 
Halsey.  To say he killed it would be an understatement,
but he F&*%ing killed it.  Still on tour with Halsey (like...festival tour), 
he's been playing on stages that make the Hollywood Bowl look like
the Viper Room (it's tiny).  I was able to catch up with Nate this week
and pick his brain about touring, his inspirations and his
eyebrow preference.
