NATE MARSHALL

// vocals & guitar

 

Nate is the founding member of Nina Speaking.  His father taught him to play a variety of instruments from an early age and he cut his teeth as a solo acoustic act until starting to play in multi-member bands in the late 2000’s.  He has over 25 years of experience in playing music.  Nate is a huge fan of anything that lights up.

CHRIS SMALL

// guitar

 

Chris is the newest member of the band. His bandmates remind him of this with constant pseudo-inappropriate hazing.  He’s been playing guitar for 23 years with 30 years of musical experience.  He has played in various regional acts in New England, Montana, Southern California and Arizona.  While Chris enjoys playing all styles of music his true passion is in the Progressive Rock and Jazz segments.  Many nights, he can be heard playing epic 2+ hour solos by his extremely angry neighbors. He also loves cake. 

BRYCE DOPP

// bass

 

Bryce is a dynamic rocking bass player that joined the band in early 2015.  He is now plotting to take over the world.  He has been playing bass for 7 years and has played with various local original and cover bands.  While Bryce can play most any style of music, he bleeds pure punk rock.  Bryce feels an emotional connection to his music and can often be seen weeping profusely during performances.

MATT KOLLER

// drums

 

Matt learned how to play drums at the age of five when he would cawl into his older brothers' bass drum and fall asleep to the rhythm.  Practically raised the beats of John Bonham and Keith Moon he's been tearing up drum kits ever since.  Matt's favorite bands are the Foo Fighters and Radiohead.  He loves Dave Navarro and is a sucker for bad 70's of rock (think Bread, Air Supply.)  In his free time he enjoys snuggling kittens and biting the heads off Swedish Fish.
