Natalie Fideler came onto the stage at A Celebration of Women and Their Music with a grin on her face and her guitar proudly in hand. While hooking up her guitar to the amp, she cracked jokes with the audience and introduced herself naturally, contrary to her exclamation that these types of setting-up moments are always awkward.

At A Celebration of Women and Their Music, she opened her set with her original song, “My Type.” The crowd laughed along with her as she sang phrases like, “You’re the type of movie I wouldn’t see at the theaters, but I’d bootleg you on SolarMovie and watch you in my underwear from the comforts of my home.” While her clever lyrics caught everyone’s attention, they didn’t distract from her powerful vocals.

In her second song of the set, “Kirkland Signature Light Suffering“, she sang, “I think you’re beautiful in every single way except the part where everyone knows you’re a narcissist. And I can tell just from the way you’re looking at me, I don’t like you as much as you like you.” The audience laughed more as they listened carefully to catch each clever comment. Woven into her wit, the power of her vocals were what really struck a chord with listeners. - Fargo Monthly


On Friday, Sept. 7 Concordia College presented a concert titled “The Healing Power of Music.” ... Highlights included a performance by music faculty members Leigh and Karin Wakefield, a dynamic testimony given by the mother of a Cobber alumni Kim Wisdom, and a new arrangement of Concordia student Natalie Fideler’s “Kirkland’s Signature Light Suffering.”

Amidst understandable tears, Kris’s testimony left the audience silent, and frankly drained me from being able to think about anything other than the holes that are left behind from such tragedies. The heavy air that had settled about the audience was lifted by Natalie Fideler in her next song titled “Kirkland’s Signature Light Suffering”.

In Fideler’s own words, the song would be “hopeful [and] uplifting.” Lifted from its original acoustic guitar version, Fideler performed her song with raw and honest vocal quality supported only by her own piano playing. The piano was raucous and bopped around with Fideler’s own body as the entire audience couldn’t help but dance with her. The wonderful change of pace set the audience up for the upswing that would be the end of the concert and balanced very well being immediately after Kris Wisdom’s testimony. - The Concordian


Natalie Fideler has been bopping her head to the beat since before she could walk. Now, after studying jazz and classical, and spending years performing in bands, Natalie is stepping into her own spotlight. Last fall, she released her debut album, Steak & Eggs.

After struggling to find likeminded musicians to perform with, Natalie decided to take her music into her own hands — literally. She spent 2017 writing the songs that would become Steak & Eggs, and after finding two engineers to record the album, she recorded and sang each of the songs’ parts.

Her songwriting combines her background in jazz guitar and love for music history jokes, as well as her admiration for pop icons like Liz Phair. The songs on Steak & Eggs are autobiographical, but they are also sprinkled with Natalie’s tongue-in-cheek sense of humor.

I caught up with Natalie to hear about how she wrote Steak & Eggs, becoming her own backing band, and finding her voice as a solo musician. - Pass The Mic

Bio

Natalie Fideler is a composer and singer-songwriter currently based in Minneapolis, MN. She has performed with several bands over the years, but the release of her debut album “Steak & Eggs” marks the beginning of her career as a solo act. Some of Natalie’s most recent endeavors include her sold-out debut album release show at the Red Raven Espresso Parlor, being a selected artist for the Fargo-Moorhead Celebration of Women and their Music, a TV episode as well as an in-studio radio feature with Prairie Public Broadcasting, airplay on radio stations such as 93X, KFAI, and KDSU, and several feature performances presented by MN nonprofit She Rock She Rock. Her chosen genre is ‘alternative pop’ which is riddled with honesty and influenced by everything from Bikini Kill to Beethoven. Through the use of colorful harmonies, intricate lyrics, stylistic double-dipping, and cheeky honesty, Fideler seeks to inspire deeper thought and personal reflection via catchy tunes that will leave you dancing and ripping your heart out at the same time.
