Growing up the West Village Natalie began busking on subway platforms at just 16 years old finding herself on the front page of the NY Times because of it.

Combining elements of folk, country and pop Natalie has a sound all her own. Rich Warren, the host of Folk-Stage called Natalie ‘one of the best voices in folk music today.’ Her voice and songwriting have lead to her independently releasing two albums and selling over 15,000 CD’s out of the trunk of her car.

A modern day troubadour, Natalie has crisscrossed the country many times over and completed a 10-week tour of the UK, Europe and Scandinavia in support of Streetlamp Musician produced by Charlie Midnight (Joni Mitchell) and Mark Needham (Fleetwood Mac).

Now based in California, Natalie is finishing her third album featuring ‘Some People’ a song the Huffington Post calls “a classic in the making”.
