Local talent Nate Harris to perform at Stz’uminus Community School fundraiser

Harris will share songs from his debut album to help raise funds for the school’s athletic department

Nate Harris is an artist on the cusp of something great. He’s currently putting the finishing touches on his debut album, he recently performed at Koksilah music festival, and his single, Precious You has 6,511 listens on Spotify.

People around town might recognize Harris more from his work as an educational assistant at Stz’uminus Community School than for his music. He spent nine years working with the school. Harris is now returning to Stz’uminus Community School to perform for a fundraiser that will go toward the school’s athletic department. He’s looking forward to coming back to the school and inspiring the youth to achieve their goals.

“I’m very excited. When I knew what it was for, I said yes without hesitation,” he said. “The message I want to send to these kids is never give up, follow your dreams, and live life to the fullest.”

Harris is planning to continue with his music. He’s also hoping to enrol in a post-bachelors degree in Education at Vancouver Island University for the January semester.

Harris is working with producer Nick Gilchrist to record his debut album. They have one song left to record. The album is in the mixing and mastering stage. Harris’ music is available on all streaming platforms and Youtube.

The Stz’uminus fundraiser is a Seafood Dinner with a silent auction, with live music from Harris. The fundraiser will be held October 25 at the Stz’uminus Community Centre. For tickets, contact Shannon Morrow at 250-957-8200 or email coachmentor23@gmail.com. Tickets must be bought in advance.
