For those of the people who love indie rock music, the band fun is a well-known name. And who would forget its talented lead vocalist Nathaniel Joseph Ruess also known as Nate Reuss.

Whatever he writes or sings, people get crazy about it. Don’t ask me the reason for why people get crazy because we will agree that we don’t have to give a single reason for that. I am just using sarcasm and making some fun out of the article. I was just referring to the song “Just Give Me a REASON” by American recording artist and songwriter Alecia Moore also known as Pink featuring Nate Reuss.

Can you believe Pink initially writes the song in a writing session? Later she realizes it needed another side of the story and who could bring the other aspect of the story more than Nate Ruess. He is a perfect match for the rocking song with his amazing voice and singing skills.  I think I shouldn’t give a single reason for that as well, or I did.

But the real question coming from everywhere is who the 32 years old, five feet nine-inch star is dating.  We know he dated fashion designer Rachel Antonoff, sister of Jack Antonoff, lead guitarist of his current pop-rock band “fun.” Rumor reveals that they grew disbelief for each other over the time, and the affair had to end.

At present, rumors tell that his new girlfriend is Ellie Goulding, an English songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and actress from Lyonshall, Herefordshire. An unknown source reveals that Nate enjoyed her songs during a tour in Australia, which both of them participated, and he has a lot of affection for her. These are some viable rumors. But there are some unviable rumors too like Nate Reussis a gay and some of his band members too.

During his love life with Rachel Antonoff, there was a strong rumor that they will get married soon. After the breakup, this rumor also perished in dust. Here we can see, he dated a fashion designer.

We suppose Rachel gave him some tips on fashion that he always carries himself well. Rumors have it that he has dated many girls in the past, and none of them worked out. Technically, we can say he is a single guy for now but if the rumors about him dating Ellie Goulding are true, we hope the chemistry works out as both of them are awesome singers.

I decided to pass out these gossips in detail to you folks; otherwise, you guys would have asked me “Just Give Me a Reason?”

I think I am dealing with this article sarcastically. But now let’s get on serious stuff now. Nate, since his high school days he directly involves in making music joining punk bands Nevergonnascore and The Past Year.

We suppose his uncle; John Reuss inspired him into music which was a performer on Broadway. He gets locally famous back then but after his graduation from the high school he decides to take the next big step and pursue a career in music. His success story is different from others. His car is his teacher and rather prefers to learn singing and to perfect it inside it than taking lessons.

Motivated by this idea, he practices singing in his car turning the music as loud as possible and going on with any sorts of songs by a vocalist whose song is hard to mimic. To support his singing ambition, he works in a law firm. 

Soon, something great happens after he completes his high school in 2000 and struggles sometimes to pursue a career in music. Knowing about the increasing popularity of the band Nevergonnascore performance locally, at the age of 19, he decides to launch a new band in 2001 named The Format with the help of his long time best friend, Sam Means.

The group increases its popularity so much that it gets signed to Electra Records. A couple of years after successfully creating their label, on February 4, 2008, Ruess announces the collapse of the band and remember the best five years of theirs life and wishes ex-band member well for the future.

Fun, the band which is now known for its famous song “We are Young” gets developed by Nate Ruess with Jack Antonoff of Steel Train and Andrew Dost formerly of Anathalo, immediately after the collapse of The Format. It takes the band about two years to get enough exposure and release their first album “Aim and Ignite”. 

Ultimately, Fueled by Ramen label signs the band.  Their second album”Some Nights” produced by Jeff Bhasker comes in 2012 which awaits sure-popularity and fans attraction because of the album first single which already releases in 2011.

In 2011 January, Glee covers the song and in February of the same year features in Spanish commercial Taco Bell.  The album two songs reached Billboard Hot 100 top positions in 2012; “We are young” Billboard 1st on March 8, 2012, and album title song “Some Nights” Billboard 3rd  and Alternative Songs Chart 1st  in 2012. On February 10, 2010, the band wins a Grammy for the song” We are young” and Grammy for best new artist.  

After getting the award, Nate sarcastically comments that they are not too young, and they are producing music for 12 years and thanks fans for their support.

Sometimes he likes to try new things and at those times he works with another artist in the industry and through the process something great always comes in. Remember the song ‘Just give me a reason” Pink ft Nate Ruess released in 2013? If you did, you are aware that the song also topped Billboard Hot 100.

The song “Only love” by  Anthony Green ft Nate Ruess, the spilled single “Cmon” by the band Panic At The Disco ft Nate Reuss, “Headlights” by Eminem ft Nate Reuss, are some example of his diversified singing abilities.

He is not only a talented singer but a talented songwriter as well.  The song “Die Young” by Kesha and Goodness Gracious by “Ellie Goulding” are the example of his writing abilities.

You can get more information about him via Twitter, Wikipedia, and various internet news articles. I will recommend youtube if you want to listen to the songs. Rating of his songs on youtube is excellent like his chemistry with Ellie Goulding, or not?
