Spoken Nerd
Spoken Nerd
Spoken Nerd is a delicious blend of hip hop, indie pop and electronic rock forged in the sylvan hills of Tennessee and home-cooked by Nashville based artist Nathan Conrad. Wrapped in satire and social commentary with a sweet inner core of hope, Conrad's musical confections make for a puckish poetic truffle; a genuine hit at any dinner party or romantic evening. With an impressive 5 studio albums under his belt, Nathan has toured throughout the US sharing the stage and collaborating with artists such as Listener, Manchild (Mars Ill), John Reuben, Qwel, DJ LORD of Public Enemy and many more. His inspired live performances maneuver fluidly through spoken word, winsome rhymes and comedy with hard beats, live playing and a singer/songwriter ethos. Every Spoken Nerd show is a candid family affair not to be missed as Conrad leads his audience on a serendipitous journey through his unique imagination. Join in the fun at a fine live music purveyor near you and log on to www.spokennerdlovesyou.com to feel the warmth.

Spoken Nerd Releases: The Lion, The Fish and The Moustache (2007), 24 Carrot Dreams (2008), Live From The Neighborhood of Make Believe (2009), Apocalypse Awareness Day (2010), Our Team Is Going To Win (2012)

"Spoken Nerd's latest, 24 Carrot Dreams, self-produced and recorded with live instrumentation, is equal parts Dr. Octagon and Larry Norman—an ambitious genre-bending record that has spirituality at its center but isn't about to drink Michael W. Smith's Kool-Aid. "- Sean Maloney from The Nashville Scene
