Nikki's Wives

« Back to Artist Roster


Nate Baylor is the drummer and founding member of Toronto-based, alternative group Nikki's Wives.

A wild and infectious performer, Nate learned the principles of jazz at the age of four from his great-uncle Brian Moffatt (Duke Ellington), and from there, instinctively branched out to many different styles of playing. After summers learning Afro-Cuban music in Havana, and Sundays studying gospel chops at the Unity Church of London, Nate turned his skills loose on the distinct, hybrid drumming style heard in Nikki's Wives.
