Matt Nathanson is a platinum-selling recording artist with a number of hit songs under his belt including Come On Get Higher, Faster, Headphones, and more. His new album, Sings His Sad Heart, is due October 5th. Aside from being a mega musical talent and genuinely good guy, he wields a fierce intellect that you'll experience in this wide-ranging interview.

  • Matt's secret obsession with health and the impact food has on his happiness and creativity.

  • How to cultivate love and empathy for yourself and others and why these two emotions are not just the keys to a better work, but a healthier body.

  • How Matt is raising his daughter to appreciate quality nutrition in all aspects of life (not just food).

  • Why he considers news media to be a form of empty calories.

  • Why eating well on tour is so much easier now than it used to be.

  • And much more!
