Disenchanted with the world of punk and indie rock, self-trained composer Nathan Felix found solace in the structure and arrangements of classical music somewhat by chance. Fueled by the crazy idea of writing a full symphony, he chose to bypass the rock n roll lifestyle after 3 albums and constant world touring, and focus all of his energy on composing the classical way. 

In 2013, Felix looked to establish himself as a composer and released his 1st symphony, The Curse the Cross & the Lion, to critical acclaim including being featured by the BBC. A subsequent documentary by director David Schulte titled, The Curse & The Symphony, captured a contradictorial story of a young, ambitious, and perhaps rebellious musician searching for identity and truth within classical structures of culture and society. The documentary screened at over 20 film festivals world wide winning awards for “Best Documentary” and “Merit Award”. In 2015, The Chagrin Studio Orchestra, conducted by Steve Eva will premiere The Curse the Cross & the Lion.

The success of The Curse the Cross & the Lion opened an opportunity to travel to Bulgaria to debut a new symphonic piece for an orchestra in Burgas in the summer of 2013. Upon returning to the US, Felix began composing a choral symphony sung in Classical Latin titled Neon Heaven. He has since been asked by several orchestras to perform Neon Heaven. The US debut took place in Austin, TX in March 2015 during SXSW by the Texas Choral Consort. The European debut subsequently followed in Denmark at the International SPOT Festival with additional performances in Portugal and Mongolia. 

In 2016, Felix was featured on PBS for work on his 6-Piano project in which he restored six pianos for a concert featuring two new pieces. After the concert, Felix donated the pianos to schools in lower income neighborhoods in Austin.

In addition to his recent work with orchestra, Felix served as an official music ambassador for the US in China and composed music for a series of PSA’s for an international campaign by LIVESTRONG to raise cancer awareness in China and Mexico. In late in 2014, Felix reformed his band, The Noise Revival Orchestra, for a tour in Asia highlighted by festival dates in Japan and Taiwan where TNRO performed for crowds of 35,000 and 50,000!
