I'm Bart Nation. I'm here for one reason: to tell anyone who is willing to listen about Jesus!! I'm not a great speaker or anything, so I'll mainly let the music do the talking and try my hardest to use the gifts that God gave me to help other people. I have a strong desire to reach out to people all over the world!!
Why this name?
It wasn't hard...it's my real name. People are always telling me that I have a cool name, so I just stuck with that.
Do you play live?
Yes, wherever I'm wanted.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It gives everyone, even people from the middle of nowhere, a chance to spread their music and message.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Started out in 2001 on a small scale, recording music at home onto cassette tapes. Worked for years on new ideas for songs and beats and compiled over 100 potential songs. Performed at churches, talent shows, etc. whenever the chances arose. In 2007, got serious about things and recorded 15 songs that eventually went onto the CD titled "Diamond Dropper". Worked hard the next 2 years diversifying the sound, experimenting with new styles, and also spreading God's word on MySpace to new friends in the USA and internationally. In 2009, came out with 2nd album titled "Adrenaline Jockey". "Conquer The Nation VOL. 1" was released in 2010 followed by VOL.2 in 2011.
