Today we’d like to introduce you to Nat Saralamba.
Nat, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
I’m originally from Bangkok, Thailand. Moved to Boston about 8 years ago. I play guitar, write music, and teach about 60 students a week, both adults and youngsters.
I currently play in 3 bands. One of them is Hirsh Gardner Project led by Hirsh Gardner from the band New England who had a hit ‘Don’t Ever Wanna Lose Ya’ in the late seventies and was produced by Paul Stanley from Kiss. The next band is called KB3, a wedding/event band whom I like to call my weekend family because we gig almost every weekend from spring to fall. The last band is called Rize. We play rock classics such as Van Halen, Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, etc.
I do write original stuff too but honestly, I enjoy being in a band and surrounding myself with good musicians much more. I love these folks I play with. Great people, great musicians, great combination.
I don’t have a life, but that’s ok.
Can you give our readers some background on your art?
I can enjoy all kinds of music but I love funk, hard rock, and soul. Those are the genres I grew up listening to. Artists like Queen, Tower of Power, Earth, Wind & Fire, Iron Maiden, Deep Purple, Prince, Nina Simone, Parliament-Funkadelic, Jimi Hendrix, X Japan, The Brand New Heavies, Whitney Houston, Whitesnake, Van Halen, James Brown, Led Zeppelin, and Jeff Beck have a huge impact on the way I play and how I see the world.
Artists rarely, if ever pursue art for the money. Nonetheless, we all have bills and responsibilities and many aspiring artists are discouraged from pursuing art due to financial reasons. Any advice or thoughts you’d like to share with prospective artists?
Learn how to budget efficiently, and educate yourself about various types of investment.
What’s the best way for someone to check out your work and provide support?
I’m on both Spotify and Apple Music.
