Biography

UK Rock singer, NATASCHA SOHL, has an extensive profile of excellent shows, from intimate private parties to sold-out arenas. Born in Paris and a twin, she showed musical promise from childhood (writing her first song at 8 years old), but formed her first band – little entity. – while at Sixth Form college. Later ditching her University media degree in favour of a Higher Diploma in Vocals from a music college, Natascha has performed with her band, and later as a Solo Artist, throughout the UK and also in the USA.

She wrote and released her first Album – STRANGE FASCINATION – in 2004 through Indie label, Granite Music, and received excellent critical notices from press and industry. Album No. 2 – DIRTY LITTLE WORD – was written and recorded in New York at the invitation of A-list song-writer/producer Russ DeSalvo and his team – a project of which everyone involved is justly very proud – and this has brought Natascha support in the New York, Los Angeles and Nashville music scenes, together with US management.

Natascha has gigged in the US with the new material on the Camplified tour two years running, and has also done various shows in New York, a Festival in Rhode Island, a student workshop at the University of Massachusetts in Boston, and radio and TV appearances for EXPN, Fox TV and CW11 respectively.

In 2007, two of Natascha’s songs (BODY BEAUTIFUL and AFTERGLOW) were Runners-Up in international song competitions and since then 4 other tracks from the forthcoming Album (NAKED, I’M SO HAPPY, BEAUTY IN THE SILENCE and FADE) were featured on MTV’s mega-hit show, The Hills, with FADE used again in another show, Newport Harbor, with a listed end credit. A further song, BODY BEAUTIFUL, was used in another MTV show, Legally Blonde.

With an increasing profile and a number of new songs in production, Natascha flies the flag for British music and home-grown talent. She has an excellent work ethic, memorable songs, genuine star quality and charismatic stage performances, both with her band and acoustically. Natascha is a consummate professional ; an artist whose music, from gut-wrenching ballads to full-on stadium anthems, has something for everyone, and she is more than capable of filling a spot in the male-dominated world of Rock stardom.

DIRTY LITTLE WORD is in the final stages of preparation for release.

Lyrics

Dirty Little Word

Written By: Natascha Sohl, Arnie Roman, Russ DeSalvo

V1:
Why do we want it?
It’s like a drug, we have to get it but it’s never enough.
A nasty habit that’s so hard to quit,
But once you taste it you’re in its grip.

B-sec:
There’s nothing like the hell it puts you through,
But what can you do?

Chorus:
L is for the loser it makes you,
O is for the hole in your heart,
V is for the verbal abuse and,
E is for the ending that tears you apart.
Love is just a dirty little,
love is just a dirty little,
love is just a dirty little word.

V2:
The words are flowing from his perfect mouth,
And then you realise that you can't go without,
But the morning after the night before,
You can't wait to get him out the door.

B-sec:
You can't understand the things you do,
What you go through.

Chorus:
L is for the loser it makes you,
O is for the hole in your heart,
V is for the verbal abuse and,
E is for the ending that tears you apart.
Love is just a dirty little,
love is just a dirty little,
love is just a dirty little word.

Bridge:
Hey, hey.

Chorus:
L is for the loser it makes you,
(breakdown)
O is for the hole in your heart,
V is for the verbal abuse and,
E is for the ending that tears you apart.

Chorus:
L is for the loser it makes you,
O is for the hole in your heart,
V is for the verbal abuse and,
E is for the ending that tears you apart.
Love is just a dirty little,
love is just a dirty little,
love is just a dirty little word.
Love is just a dirty little,
love is just a dirty little,
love is just a dirty little, dirty little word.

Naked

Written By: Russ Desalvo, Arnie Roman, Kari Kimmel

Naked

V1: I’m standing before you like a little child,
Holding my heart too afraid to lie,
And somehow you see me and know everything,
How’d you get to me?

Chorus: Now you’ve seen all I have I can’t hide it and I can’t hold it back.
Past the edge that I fake my innocence is one kiss away.
In your arms I’m so weak I have no secrets to keep.
You’ve stripped me naked.

V2: Don’t look at me don’t you sympathise,
You’re making me nervous I wanna die
And baby don’t act as if you didn’t know
How it feels when you hold me close.

Chorus: Now you’ve seen all I have I can’t hide it and I can’t hold it back.
Past the edge that I fake my innocence is one kiss away.
In your arms I’m so weak I have no secrets to keep.
You’ve stripped me naked.

Bridge: I’m a little bit terrified a little bit too late,
I thought that I could go erase this mistake, oh yeah.
You wrap yourself around me and I’m totally exposed,
Nothing I can say to you, you already know.

Link: Ahh, ahh. Ahh, ahh. Ahh, ahh. Ahh, oh yeah.

Chorus: Now you’ve seen all I have I can’t hide it and I can’t hold it back.
Past the edge that I fake my innocence is one kiss away.
In your arms I’m so weak I have no secrets to keep.
Now you’ve seen all I have I can’t hide it and I can’t hold it back.
Past the edge that I fake my innocence is one kiss away.
In your arms I’m so weak I have no secrets to keep.
You’ve stripped me naked.

Beauty In The Silence

Written By: Natascha Sohl, Dana Calitri, Martin Briley

V1: I don’t believe the propaganda, I’ll live happily ever after you,
who said if I’m not part of a 2 then I’ll lose?
I found comfort in your chaos, I forgot to think about the things I need.
Nothing’s ever like you’d expect it to be, now I see.

B-sec: Maybe I was just afraid of leaving.
I didn’t wanna be alone.

Chorus: But there is beauty in the silence after the sky has fallen down,
Though I’ve been bruised and badly shaken I am back on solid ground.
and there is beauty in the silence, I’m feeling so much better now.
I’ve found a place where I can work things out.

V2: I’ve been flipping through the channels, I’ve been learning things about myself.
Your remedy just wasn’t good for my health.
I can't live walking in your shadow, I can't live waiting till the coast is clear,
Afraid that my heart will say something I don’t wanna hear.

B-sec: I can't believe I was so scared of leaving,
I’m so much better on my own.

Chorus: Coz there is beauty in the silence after the sky has fallen down,
Though I’ve been bruised and badly shaken I am back on solid ground.
Yeah there is beauty in the silence, I’m feeling so much better now.
I’ve found a place where I can work things out.

Bridge: Ahh’s

Chorus: Coz there is beauty in the silence after the sky has fallen down,
Though I’ve been bruised and badly shaken I am back on solid ground.
Yeah there is beauty in the silence, I’m feeling so much better now.
I’ve found a place where I can work things out.

Outro: Ahh’s

Afterglow

Written By: Natascha Sohl, Russ Desalvo and Tanya Leah

Sec A: And in the morning light he’s still as beautiful.
Sun playing on his perfect skin,
erasing time so I can breathe him in.
I put the kettle on and slip back between the sheets,
Half dreaming smile upon his lips.
I might have to wake him with a kiss, like this.

Sec B: I lean into him and he stirs and it starts to get intense
and his hands in my hands and I throw him down and then, ohhh.

Sec A: I button up his shirt and walk him down to the door.
We laugh and I send him on his way.
I go back to my tea and start my day.

Hands off My Past

Written By: Natascha Sohl, Russ Desalvo, Arnie Roman

V1: You don’t need to know every detail of my psyche,
There are certain little secrets my intention is to keep.
If I were in your shoes I wouldn’t take this lightly,
There are certain little demons you don’t ever wanna meet.

B-sec: Be careful, I’m a handful.
So just let it be.

Chorus: Get your hands off my past,
and the places that I don’t want curiosity to go.
Get your hands off my past,
in my moments of despair you’ve got no right to take me back there.

V2: You don’t need to hear every single story,
I don’t want the disappointment to contaminate your heart.
And I don’t wanna feel like you’re feeling sorry for me,
Holding back your pity as we pick my life apart.

B-sec: Keep your eyes peeled, I’m a minefield.
So just let this be.

Chorus: Get your hands off my past,
and the places that I don’t want curiosity to go.
Get your hands off my past,
in my moments of despair you’ve got no right to take me back there.

Bridge: Where misery is crawling all around the dark,
Up and down hallways full of bruises and scars.

Chorus: Get your hands off my past,
and the places that I don’t want curiosity to go.
Get your hands off my past,
in my moments of despair you’ve got no right to take me there.
Get your hands off my past,
and the places that I don’t want curiosity to go.
Get your hands off my past,
in my moments of despair you’ve got no right to take me back there.

Nothing Else Matters

Written By: Natascha Sohl, Arnie Roman, Russ Desalvo

V1: I don’t know what it is that I’m supposed to think,
You know you push me to the brink,
And I’m so irritated I’m not gonna take this.
What is it that you’ve been expecting me to do?
You know it’s not all about you,
I’m getting so impatient with your hesitation.

Chorus: You love me, you hate me, you need me, you don’t,
You please me, you tease me, you go for my throat,
You kiss me, you kick me, you leave me in tatters,
Don’t want me, you flaunt me like nothing else matters, oh.
Nothing else matters, oh.

V2: You’re like a hurricane of frenzy in my bed,
and then you’re boring me to death
and it’s so liberating to finally say this.
You think that you can get away with anything,
But you don’t even give a shit,
And you’re so overrated, I’m too good to be wasted.

Chorus: You love me, you hate me, you need me, you don’t,
You please me, you tease me, you go for my throat,
You kiss me, you kick me, you leave me in tatters,
Don’t want me, you flaunt me like nothing else matters, oh.
Nothing else matters, oh, oh.

Bridge: You think nothing else matters but you,
You think nothing else matters but you,
You’re not thinking about what you’re about to loose,
You think nothing else matters but you.

Chorus: You love me, you hate me, you need me, you don’t,
You please me, you tease me, you go for my throat,
You kiss me, you kick me, you leave me in tatters,
Don’t want me, you flaunt me like…

You love me, you hate me, you need me, you don’t,
You please me you tease me you go for my throat,
You kiss me you kick me you leave me in tatters,
Don’t want me, you flaunt me like nothing else matters, oh.
Nothing else matters, oh,
Nothing else matters, oh,
Nothing else matters, oh.

Body Beautiful

Written By: Natascha Sohl + Simon Jones

You got up at seven today, the first thing on your mind is how you look,

Then you say ’I’m looking OK, I’m such a find I should be in a book’.

You jump in the shower and then you’re out again, you really can’t be late.

But you find that it never ends the time you spend to keep you so ornate.

B-sec: You’re such a vision.
In your opinion you’re never ordinary.

Chorus: There’s a reason why you’re gonna be a star,

And it’s easy to see that you’re gonna go far.

Great hair, great face and great skin – you’re so amazing.

With your sprayed-on smile you’re so full of grace,

You’re the reason they all want a perfect face.

Great lips, great legs and that’s all.

Because you’re body beautiful.

V2: You get to the salon and then they take your coat and sit you in a chair.

They treat you like you’re an old friend, they’re asking how you’ve been and why you’re there.

Then you say ‘just gimmie it all, my roots have grown and my tan’s about to fade.

I’m in need of an overhaul so do my nails and I’ll be on my way’.

B-sec: You’re such a vision.
In your opinion you’re never ordinary.

Chorus: There’s a reason why you’re gonna be a star,

And it’s easy to see that you’re gonna go far.

Great hair, great face and great skin – you’re so amazing.

With your sprayed-on smile you’re so full of grace,

You’re the reason they all want a perfect face.

Great ass, great legs and that’s all.

Because you’re body beautiful.

Bridge: The packaging is beautiful but what’s inside?

There’s nothing going on in there, it’s your disguise.

It’s only skin deep…

Chorus: There’s a reason why you’re gonna be a star,

And it’s easy to see that you’re gonna go far.

Great hair, great face and great skin – you’re so amazing.

With your sprayed-on smile you’re so full of grace,

You’re the reason they all want a perfect face.

Great ass, great legs and that’s all.

Cause man you’re body beautiful.
