Nathan Kyle Frederick, known by his stage name ‘Gifted’, is a Canadian musician, singer and songwriter. His stage name was bestowed upon him by his mother who was unable to conceive for 11 years before being gifted with her first born. Fittingly, Nathan, a Hebrew name, which means “Gifted from God” was chosen.
He displayed an affinity for music at an early age. By age 5, he began playing the piano by ear and by 14 had learned to play the baritone and trumpet. After a decade of studying music theory, he decided to pursue song writing in 2011. Currently, he is working on a 14 song album entitled ‘Songs of a Dangerous Woman’, which is being released periodically.
Gifted is known for his soulful, emotive voice and adept lyricism. He is able to sing both staccato and legato rhythms harmoniously. His vocal and musical versatility allows for transitions through multiple genres such as R&B, Jazz, Blues, Soul, Reggae, Hip Hop, and Pop.
