In his all too brief career, spanning a little over a decade, he wrote dozens of songs, recorded four albums, with a fifth that was nearly completed when he died, and is currently being finished by his producer, John Custer. A full length performance DVD is in production, and a second volume is scheduled to follow. In addition to these works, he left behind unfinished lyrics and poetry, and many hours of unedited video. Much of this material was used as the basis for the film, Nathan Davis Still Lives, produced by DEANO Pictures.
