In 2011, a collaboration of friends and musicians within the Edmonton skateboard community became Nature Of. Since their assembly, the five piece band has been writing music together while constantly evolving and developing a unique and organic sound. Since their first live performance, Steven Schneider, Cole Switzer, Kyla Rankine and Sydney Leard have been seen at venues all around their hometown of Edmonton, Alberta
For five years, the musicians in Nature Of have given thoughtful effort to crafting their songs and performances. In June of 2013, the band released their debut full length self titled album. It was recorded over a month long period at Riverdale Recorders in Edmonton with Juno Nominated Producer Scott Franchuk. The 10 song album was listed as one of the top 10 Edmonton records of 2014 by Gigcity.ca, and served as a benchmark contribution to the band receiving a $10,000.00 grant through Alberta Foundation for the Arts to be used for the recording of their second full length record. The album ‘Cherish’ is completed and now available worldwide.
With three cross-Canada tours under their belt, the group is steadily asserting themselves as contenders in music communities both in Alberta and across the country. With their honest music and modest attitude, Nature Of is sure to continue progressing and inspiring for years to come.
