Austrian TV chosen Nathan Trent internally while he was running to represant Germany. The searching team in charge noticed his debut single and thus asked him to submit another song. They heard Running on air he had written with Bernhard Penzias and the deal was done.
Nathanaele Koll (25) aka Nathan Trent has Austrian father, a violinist in the Tiroler Symphonieorchester Innsbruck and Italian mother. Nathan has studied violin and piano since he was 3 years old, and has starred in many musicals, and in theater since childhood. He has also participated in various contests, including the German X Factor as a member of Boyz II Hot in 2011. His debut single Like it is was released last summer.
This is one of the songs I'd love to like a lot more. He's likable, has a nice voice and the song is not the typical Eurovision song but a solid groovy pop song. But even if it's a very pleasant three minutes it's a kind of song that if played on radio I wouldn't propably pay any attention to. And I can't think of any other staging but some 90's boy band dance routine - I hope Austrians prove me wrong! 4/10
