The music of Nathan and the Zydeco Cha-Chas is the expression of a remarkable South Louisiana family. Nathan formed The Cha-Chas back in 1985, and since then has brought his unique take on this regional South Louisiana music to all corners of the globe. From Lincoln Center in New York to The Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Nathan’s music has crossed all barriers to speak to the very heart of his audience.

A New Road is an eleven songs album with eight well-crafted originals, two sung in Creole French, and three well-chosen covers such as the whirling waltz transformation of Ray Charles’ “I Can’t Stop Loving You” and the rollicking rendition of Jim Croce’s ’70s pop hit “Leroy Brown.”
