Central New York native, Nicholas Stark, always had a passion for music, starting from his long car rides as a kid, listening to a steady diet of 90’s country. His roots didn’t always remain in the country dirt, though, branching out into the rock world as he hit his late teens. As many country fans know, country music never really leaves the soul. Now in his thirties, Stark is the frontman/songwriter for the group Small Town Shade, releasing two award-winning albums thus far, featuring emotionally-infused, aggressive, driving songs that are slightly reminiscent of his rock past, but with a splash of the country he grew up with. Enter, Lonnie Park, a Grammy-nominated pianist, producer, singer/songwriter, engineer, among many other talents. Park collaborated with Stark on all of his recordings as a producer and writer, thus budding their relationship into a potent musical tandem. Park brings his talents from the rock vein, as a co-frontman from the group Ten Man Push, as well as having a successful career as a solo country artist. All these ingredients led to the creation of The Natty Ray Band, the mixture of country and rock you’ve been waiting for.
