Bio

Natalie spent most of her life growing up in the coutryside of Creston, BC. Her introduction to music began around age 4 when her grandmother taught her classical piano. She started playing guitar at age 13, and began composing shortly thereafter. After completing her grade 9 RCM piano and graduating from high school she took time off to travel and write before enrolling in the jazz program at Nanaimo's Malaspina University-College where she studied voice and piano. During her second year of studies there she encountered bluegrass music, and began playing the mandolin and performing with various bands around town. Her fascination with old-time music led her to start playing the banjo, which in turn led to the formation of a new band, Skagway, with Ira Pelletier on mandolin, Darrin Wiebe on guitar, Dinah D. on double bass, and Natalie on banjo. Her own music draws on this bluegrass influence, and also incorporates other musical influences such as folk artists Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, and the Band, as well as blues and jazz music. This eclectic mix of influences has given Natalie her own sound which has been honed by her experiences living in the country, travelling, and playing with various musicians in wide-ranging genres.
