Nelson Slater

Tesla died and WWII raged, as Nelson Wellington Slater landed on the icy shore of the Quebec River. By college years, Lou Reed and the band movement lured him out of the basement of the Brill Building. He gets a record contract with RCA. A few years in Gramercy Park and a many more in San Francisco. His unique back story covers many decades worth of music and culture but curiously, he is always moving forward. Nelson has been spending the last few years electrifying eclectic midtown street clubs like the Bowery Electric, Cake Shop and National Underground.
