Name: Nathen Franklin


From the small town of Glencoe, Oklahoma and has been playing guitar and writing songs for almost 18 years. Has taught himself how to play guitar over the years as well as honing his voice. Writing comes easiest to him and has never had to practice it. The best way to describe what music means to him is that music speaks and he tries to translate it.

His influences come from a mixture of country singers from Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard to Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson and Tim McGraw.

 His music genre is best described as Red Dirt Country. He likes to play around with blues, country, and southern rock as well. 

 He has played in Osu's 2022 and 2023 art festivals, Osu's talent show of 2023, and Stillwater, Oklahoma's art show of 2023. He has also played in multiple other festivals including  Ralston's 77th Labor Day Celebration, Glencoe's Founders Day Celebration, Oh My Gourd's Pumpkin Festival  and various open mic nights.
