It's been said of many great musicians that they "were born with a guitar in their hand." And while singer/songwriter Nathan Reich found his guitar soon enough, his first love was a toy ukulele. Born in the musically rich San Francisco Bay Area Nathan began studying guitar in earnest at the age of 12. Growing up he had many passions in life, but after spending a year at Berklee College of Music it didn't taken long for his unique style of playing only with his fingers, and predominately with just his thumb, to gain him recognition—his peers nicknamed him "Thumb Kid" and his teachers agreed they had never seen anything like it.
