Nate Morton is the drummer for the House Band on NBC’s TV show “The Voice”. He has toured with artists Natalie Cole, Chaka Kahn, Paul Stanley, Poe, the America Idol Band, Vanessa Carlton and Miley Cyrus.
His TV appearances include playing in the house band for Mark Burnett’s Rock Star: INXS, Rock Star: Supernova, the Bonnie Hunt Show, MTV’s Rock The Cradle and the Grammy Awards Show with Madonna.
Morton is endorsed by Pearl Drums, RhythmTech, Zildjian drumsticks and cymbals, Roland electronics and V-Drums and Remo drumheads.
