Nathaniel Braddock is the leader of the internationally touring Occidental Brothers Dance Band Int'l and a ten-year faculty member of Chicago's Old Town School of Folk Music. Braddock performed extensively with African artists Samba Mapangala, Moussa Diakite, Kofi Cromwell, and Mathew Tembo, and with many American indie rock bands. He is currently a member of the Australian indie band SONGS. His instrumental solo guitar and mandolin sets feature the crossroads of African roots music and American primitive guitar, with original compositions that extend into modern harmonies and complex rhythms with the complexity of chamber music. In 2014 Braddock relocated to Sydney, Australia.
