NAUTICAL NATION / JAMES KEITH

Nautical Nation, brainchild of frontman James Keith "Jake" Asbury, is an Alternative band from

deep in the heart of the Texas hill country. James grew up  singing and performing

at his family's music venue, The Lazy Days Canteen.

His first years of playing music were in his father's band "The River Rats"  fueling

his fire and love for music early on. Over the next 10 years James sharpened his skills

and had the privilege of being groomed by seasoned

performers.  Over his 4 year career as an original artist he has shared

the stage and worked with many renowned artists as well as Grammy Award winners.


"JAMES KEITH IS AN ARTIST WHO LETS THE POWER OF THE SONG

LEAD THE WAY REGARDLESS OF GENRE OR CLIMATE.

IT'S ALL ABOUT REAL PERFORMANCES AND CLASSIC MUSICIANSHIP. NO

SMOKE AND MIRRORS…

…DESIRE TO SHARE THEIR SOUND WITH THE WORLD ...A SOUND THAT CAN’T BE

STUFFED INTO A BOX. THEY

EMBRACE THEIR SOFTER ACOUSTIC SURFER SIDE, WITH THE OLD SCHOOL PUNCH OF

VAN HALEN ROCK & ROLL AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN.”

- PRODUCER AND BASSIST FOR BLUE OCTOBER, MATT NOVESKEY

In 2017 James Keith finished up work on his debut (solo) album , "Dreamboat". The entirely self

written album was

recorded at Hidden Creek, Alnico, and Orb Studios in Austin, Texas. James Keith's music is

described as eclectic . His

voice has a particular rawness and charming freshness that lures you in. Later in the year James

added his bandmates,

The Moondogs (later Nautical Nation) and debuted at Austin's famed, Paramount Theatre

(SXSW 2017) . They then

played at San Antonio's San Jose MissionFest for the Fiesta closing concert. The band

performed a mini tour of The UK

& France and returned to headline San Marcos TX - Summer In The Park, as well as support

dates for Grammy Award

winning artists' Los Lobos, Los TexManiacs, & Rick Trevino including the City of Del Rio’s July 4th

Extravaganza with

David Hidalgo. This past spring Nautical Nation signed on with Developer Matt Noveskey of

Blue October and

released their debut EP, Golden Seas, September 7, 2018 following a month long tour in
