Best Mann - indie-rock / art-rock music artist based in Amherst, United States.
Best Mann (the alter-ego of Massachusett-based producer, composer, multi-instrumentalist, and Prince-devotee Nate Mondschein) is an obsessive over small moments. Merging Art-Rock aesthetics, Hip-Hop-adjacent pocket, and Folk-style storytelling, Nate brings his diverse influences to bear in the form of lush, groove-heavy arrangements encircling observational, evocative lyrics. He likes telling stories about family, and anxiety, and love, and ghosts, and things he can’t remember as well as he wishes he could. He does a lot of this on his self-produced debut album under the Best Mann moniker, …And the Sky (out Fall, 2019).
Beyond Best Mann, Nate’s work as a songwriter, producer, and performer has been featured in a variety of publications, including The New Yorker, Afropunk, NEPR, Okayplayer, The Deli Magazine, and many more. Nate is the owner of Echo Base Production, a full service music production company out of Western Massachusetts.
