Drummer and producer Nate Smith spent the better part of his career thus far backing some of the most impressive names on the New York scene like the prolific trumpeter Dave Douglas and the versatile saxophonist Chris Potter.

With his project KINFOLK, Smith weaves sounds, shapes and stories from across the country and across the popular music spectrum. It’s “jazz” yes, but inflected with a vernacular rooted in Prince, ’90s slow jams and easy-going, Sunday afternoon soul as much as Kenny Garrett and Robert Glasper.
