2x Dove Award winning producer Phenomenal (formally known as Nate-Love of the Clemons Brothers) has stamped his undeniable imprint on the music scene since the 1990s. His production has helped create hits for artists such as Dru Hill, Tyrese, Terry Dexter, Ruff Endz, Out Of Eden, Aaron Hall, Mary J. Blige and BeBe Winans, among many others. Respected beyond the genres of urban and hip hop music, Phenomenal, whose musical influences cross cultural lines, has also been sought by diverse artists whose music similarly knows no boundaries, from pop stars Wild Orchid to urban Christian group Out Of Eden.
Born Nathan B. Clemons in Stratford, Connecticut on June 21, 1972, Phenomenal, so named by his former manager Richard Byrd as well as artists because of the level music he created. Phenomenal has held membership in production companies from super-producer Clark Kent's Supermen Productions, to Manuel Seal's production house, to Clemons Brothers Entertainment, a production company founded by himself and his brother Big Mike Clemons, to being CEO of his own label, We Dream Records a division of his media company We Dream Entertainment Group, which also embodies We Dream Musicworks, and Hitt Society Music Productions.
Mary J. Blige's hit single "Give Me You", produced by The Clemons Brothers and Manuel Seal, written by Diane Warren introduced Mary in a new light to the pop audience. Phenomenal's versatility broadened with the combination of R&B and hip hop mixed with gospel and orchestral arrangements and blended together with complex rhythm, sound effects and percussion placements. At the same time, his partnership with Manuel Seal and Big Mike blossomed into a team that delivered Aaron Hall's gold single "All the Places I Will Kiss You" and they became one of music's most sought after production/songwriting teams.
Along the way he moved from Atlanta Georgia, and built several studios in Durham, North Carolina where he lives and does most of his production, and has acquired a publishing deal with Disney Music Publishing and with The Royalty Network. Phenomenal's genre breaking has made him a force in R&B, Hip Hop, Gospel and Christian music today, and he takes pride in staying ahead of the curve with his originality and experimentation.
"You can accomplish anything you put your mind to and stay focused. Good producers create hot beats. Great producers, however, create a sound. They have a point of view, a lasting impression..." explains Phenomenal, an innovator who continues to raise the bar in Christian music while adventurously expanding his musical boundaries.
