Big Bend's primary songwriter is Nathan Phillips, an Ohio native. His mother–daughter of a 12-tone composer–wrote music and sang in operas and musicals in Mansfield, where Phillips grew up playing piano. Her voice is featured on Radish, Big Bend's second release and first non-instrumental recording. In addition to his solo keyboard and vocal work, Phillips has supported bands like Julianna Barwick, Qasim Naqvi, and, as a member of Youngstown's The Building, The War On Drugs.
