Australian singer/songwriter Nathan Tasker's seventh studio album, Man On A Wire is now available. Produced by Paul Moak (Third Day, Mat Kearney), the album features eleven new songs that were written or co-written by Tasker, and the music presents the listener with realistic stories that represent an authentic Christian life with all of its joys and sorrows.
Born and raised in Sydney, Australia, Tasker's love of music began in high school when he taught himself how to play the acoustic guitar and then spent several years touring Australia as a singer/songwriter.
His first major album, A Look Inside, released in 2003, which was followed by Must Be More in 2005 that teamed him with producer Charlie Peacock in Nashville.
The success of the project led to Tasker being named 2006 Artist of the Year and awarded Song of The Year by the Australian Christian Music Charts. The single, "Like You Love Me," reached No. 1 on TCM (formerly The Rock Across Australia) weekly Contemporary Top 30.
Tasker's breakout album, Home, was also recorded in Nashville with Jason Ingram and Rusty Varenkamp as producers and garnered Tasker another Artist of the Year honor by TCM in 2011, along with three singles reaching No. 1 in Australia and the U.K.
Tasker maintains an active touring schedule and has performed with such artists as Michael W. Smith, Bebo Norman, Andrew Peterson and Aaron Shust. Tasker currently lives in Nashville, TN with his wife, Cassie, and his son, Theo.

Worshipful and Heartfelt messages and sound- and by that I mean its not peppy-life-is-fun-pop, its more of a hope (and love) in the dark (times) songs. That said, beautiful music, talented vocals, and lyrics with passionate messages combine for a beautiful experience.
