Nat Stahl started playing bass in 1995, with the Indie rock outfit Crib. After rising to the top of the Ithaca, NY alternative scene, opening for several up-and-coming national acts, and recording an album, Crib disbanded and Nat went on to co-found Lucky and The Bastards, a country-punk band that played all the great Boston clubs
and a few in NYC.
The Bastards recorded two albums, played dozens of shows, and were written up in The Noise as well as mentioned in the New York Post. These days Nat is also studying the great Highland Bagpipes, and when not playing music, uses his Ed.D in mathematics education to torment high school students (don’t worry, he dries their tears and gives them cookies). Nat is no stranger to the stage or studio,
and loves Celtic music.
