Nate Query is a founding member of The Decemberists and in that role has appeared on The Tonight Show, The Colbert Report, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, the top of the billboard 200, and countless live shows. He is also a member of Black Prairie, a band comprised of most of The Decemberists along with a few other musicians (Annalisa Tornfelt and Jon Neufeld to be exact), which has been gathering steam as of late (they've also been on The Tonight Show). We talk about Nate's early forays into music, the influence that jazz has had on him, and what it's like to be on the road in a "big" band and a "small" one. He also knows how to brew some good beer. Enjoy!
