Nate Lepine
, an active member of the Chicago Jazz Community, was born in Alaska, raised in Connecticut, MA and moved to Chicago in ’91.

Born June 3rd, 1973 Lepine has been an active musician since the age of 18 when he started out traveling with a Chicago blues band. As one of the most venerable multi-versed musicians in the local contemporary Jazz community; Lepine plays saxophone, Flute, Clarinet and Keyboards.

Lepine has played with many Chicago-based bands, namely Manishevitz, Sister Machine Gun, Califone, Herculaneum and Smog. He has played with artists such as Toumani Diabate, Bobby Bare Jr., Pete Yorn, Company of Thieves, The M’s, Poi Dog Pondering,  Sonoi, Baby Teeth, The NRG Ensemble, Iron and Wine, Cursive and many others.

Currently Lepine plays saxophone and flute in the Chicago-based band Herculaneum.

“Lepine’s “Fern” is the standout: unhurried, insistently grooving, with a thick harmonized horn passage that bookends the piece. Bass and drums play along the first time through, but in the final 30 seconds it’s the horns alone, laying bare the counterpoint’s nasty inner workings.”

David Adler’s review in the January 2012 issue of The New York City Jazz Record.

“There is good contemporary idiosyncratic tenor soloing from Lepine.”

A song that slowly builds and expands can make the agonizing pace of the first few verses seem worth hearing in the end.
