Nature Of


In 2011, a collaboration of friends and musicians within the Edmonton skateboard community became Nature Of. Since their assembly, the band has been writing music together while constantly evolving and developing a unique and organic sound. Since their first live performance, Steven Schneider, Cole Switzer, Kyla Rankine, and Cameron O’Neill have been seen at venues all around their hometown of Edmonton, Alberta.

For over seven years, the musicians in Nature Of have given thoughtful effort to crafting their songs and performances. In June 2013, the band released their debut full length self-titled album. It was recorded over a month-long period at Riverdale Recorders in Edmonton with Juno Nominated Producer Scott Franchuk. The 10-song album was listed as one of the top 10 Edmonton records of 2014 by, and served as a benchmark contribution to the band receiving a $10,000 grant through Alberta Foundation for the Arts to be used for the recording of their second full length record. The album, Cherish, was released in April 2017 and is now available worldwide.

In 2018, Nature Of were announced as the winners of Bent River Records’ recording competition sponsored by CKUA Radio Network, granting them the opportunity to work with producer Marcus Paquin (Arcade Fire, The National, Stars) on a new full-length record. Recording took place over the course of 2018, and the album, The Mean, is slated to be released in June 2019.

With three cross-Canada tours under their belt, the group is steadily asserting itself as a contender in music communities both in Alberta and across the country. With their honest music and modest attitude, Nature Of is sure to continue progressing and inspiring for years to come.
