BandPopSinger/Songwriter

Dearborn is the folk/pop/soulful sound of a sister trio navigating the waters of being young and human. Expect to hear honest words and genetically perfected harmonies.

Biography

Dearborn is the new band project from Portland native, Natalie Closner.

Natalie returned to the northwest after spending time writing and playing in Nashville (12th & Porter) and Los Angeles (Viper Room, Hollywood Renaissance Hotel) where she finished an EP called "Pseudo Love," and worked as a studio session singer

After going on two national tours to promote Pseudo Love, she invited twin sisters Meegan and Allie to join the crew. So now, with a full length recording project called Nouns to be released in November, so begins Dearborn.

The resulting sounds are influenced by the music and songwriting of Brandi Carlile, Metric, Death Cab for Cutie, Ray Lamontagne, Sara Bareilles, Florence And The Machine, Rihanna, Ingrid Michaelson, Coldplay, Stevie Wonder, The Civil Wars, Sufjan Stevens, Feist, Paramore, and Joni Mitchell. Put it in a blender with some sister harmonies and twenty-something angst (wisdom?) and this is what comes out.

Lyrics

Gunsmoke

Written By: Natalie Closner

V. 1
I've tried to run away - far away from
This place and what it makes. Can't erase
The black covering my lungs.
I've breathed the smoke coming out of their guns.

V. 2
I've lied about how I'm made, where I came from
I stripped off their uniform - I'm reborn,
I'm making a new me.
Give me new lungs, give me surgery

Chorus
Stop the hunt, drop your guns.
You can't get to me, history.
I'm the one who says I'm done.
I decide when I'm free from what used to be.
Give me a match.
No I'm not one to joke.
I'll show you arson,
I'll show you some gun smoke.

V. 3
I've been lined up, been locked away, told what to say.
Now I'm finally busting out of here
This is clear -
I'm at the brunt of your weapons.
Yeah, you're my past. I'll teach you a lesson.

Chorus
Stop the hunt, drop your guns.
You can't get to me, history.
I'm the one who says I'm done.
I decide when I'm free from what used to be.
Give me a match.
No I'm not one to joke.
I'll show you arson,
I'll show you some gun smoke.
