Click on over to YouTube today to hear and see a live performance video of Nate and his original song “Some Kind of Lion,” from a recent live stream show. Thank you for watching!
This is a song about knocking down the towers that crop up before us…
Bright Lights, and A Wild New Year! For the past two years Nate and Barbara celebrated New Year’s Eve with merriment and music, and a video for their song Bright Lights. This year features a performance of their song from their live stream show, the nature of live art made possible by the wildness of technology.
Bright Lights is a journey of love and change, reconciling our natural selves in the modern world, nature against and with machinery, and leaping into your life even when you cannot see. Happy New Year Friends. Thank you for being here again.
This is a song about forgiveness, trying to forgive, risking and swimming and falling and colliding into yourself, and all we must dive through to learn what forgiveness truly is… From The Repressions 11/14/20 live stream show on TwitchMusic… with added lyrics! You can find the official track for “From The Blue Green Sea” on all music streaming platforms!
Just over a year ago, two talented and compassionate music makers, Geno Maurillo and Michael Blow, founded an online group of vegan musicians, singers, songwriters, and videographers who are also vegan. The group quickly grew into hundreds of talented people from around the world, and now they have started their own YouTube channel to showcase these artists.
The Vegan Music Makers, in their words, “come from a love-based approach in hopes of helping to positively evolve the planet.” That means every video on this channel is by an artist who truly cares about animals, the environment and people, and they are living according to their values. It is wonderful company to keep, and The Repressions are very proud to be one of the first featured videos!

When Nate played solo gigs, his Radiohead covers were strongly requested, even earning him the nickname “Nateohead” in the local music scene. His vocal range and love for the songs are so apparent, that the tribute must be made. Here is a new video from the 10/31/20 Twitch live stream show, of Knight Nate covering “All I Need.”
March of 2020 was the last time The Repressions performed in front of a live (non virtual) audience. While they long for these shows again, they are grateful that that small evening was blessed with a long set and a lovely audience.
Moonlight Magic is a wonderful example of Forest Music, and a misty dream that we will make our forests anywhere, through music and art and love and hope.
When we are in deep despair, walking through the world around us can be a dissociative experience, looking at others who seem “normal” as though they exist in some other realm, where doing everyday activities and enjoying life is no challenge. Depression, and states of feeling outside of the conventional society, can make us feel as though we are only floating through the traditional world, unseen.
This new video on Youtube today features Barbara Dragon performing The Repressions original song “Ghost Walk” and hoping very much that it makes someone out there feel understood, and not alone.
Music must be explored and appreciated from all angles, and when Nate gets going with the loop pedal, barrels of music get tossed. Enjoy Jib Jig!
Many thanks to all who joined the livestream show on September 26. Here is a live take, with lyrics, of Quiet Solitude (subtle xylophone included.) Thank you for watching!
