Nate Hess (of Bad & The Ugly)

“The beauty of aggression leads me to the sound of a warm guitar”, croons Nate Hess on the opening track of Bad & The Ugly’s latest EP Slept in the Pages“Can’t Shake the Daze.”

Still, it hasn’t always been that way for Hess. He grew up letting his aggression out via beating the skins off his drum set in San Diego hardcore/screamo outfit, A Shattered Hope. It wasn’t until three years ago that Hess did pick up that warm guitar and started the alt-folk quintet, Bad & The Ugly. Leaving primal screams and double bass pedals behind for the sounds of a desert drive and eerie finger picking, the band self-released their debut EP, Skin and Bones in 2013 along with a music video for the foot stomping single “Borrego Dreamer.”
