After co-writing a pop-opera in high school, Nas earned a bachelor’s degree in Communications with a focus on Media Production and a minor in Music from UNC Chapel Hill. He went on to form the band Lake Inferior, which signed with label Vinyl Records. In addition to being lead singer/songwriter, Nas also took on primary instrumental and production roles as the band released two EPs, toured, and opened for groups such as Barenaked Ladies, Deerhunter, and Future Islands.
Since Lake Inferior's dissolution in 2010, Nas has released music through his solo project Field Spirit and played drums and piano for NC based R&B act XOXOK. Nas has played shows in venues across the east coast including Hopscotch Festival in Raleigh, Pianos in NYC, Cats Cradle in Carrboro, and the Drunken Unicorn in Atlanta.
