Nate Russell has been making art and music since he was a kid in school, but once he made his way to a few more Phish shows (and Shakedowns) it wasn’t long until he started making his own Phish art. Nate started making a large watercolor poster for each show he attended, rather than buying a poster. Pretty soon, his friends started asking for their own. Thus, Nate’s art has grown thanks to Phish.
This past tour Nate was on Shakedown and at shows with a tent/table for his brand, Roots Rock Rage. He started a business with a goal in mind to bring artists together to create music themed art and clothing to be sold on tour and at festivals. There are only a handful of working on the project currently, doing local shows in Humboldt, California, selling t-shirts, hats, handkerchiefs and backpacks. Moving forward, Nate wants each piece, whether it be a t-shirt, backpack, pin or poster, to be well designed, have physical beauty, evoke an emotional response (even if it is “Dude, Sweet!), and have meaning beyond the utilitarian or commercial. You can see more designs at www.RootsRockRage.com
