Music

The best kept secret in music

Press


"A sensitive countrypolitan...songs tend toward the personal and heartfelt, but with enough kick to remind us of a sweeter, more wistful Lucinda Williams"
- Kelly Vance


"..melding the twang of country with folk, jazz and pop sensibility that recalls a variety of performers: the Indigo Girls, Ricki Lee Jones, Sheryl Crowe or Janis Ian". "The ghostly voices and raw emotion are devastatingly authentic." - Julia Park


"Your CD is really is wonderful...and that's a word I rarely use to describe ANYTHING. But it fits."
- Dennis Juarez

Bio

Just In- Natasha won an honorable mention award for "My Sleep" from the John Lennon Songwriting Contest!
With a background as a classical violinist and a jazz singer, and an obsession for crafting "non-pop" pop songs, Natasha creates a body of music that is both lyrical and evocative. Her songs combine strong melodies with introspective lyrics and are driven by a definite, compelling rhythm. Hers is a style that blends pop, jazz, folk, and country into a genre all its own-one she refers to as pop fusion. Listen to her songs and you will hear a story that is almost always both heartwarming and heart wrenching, soulful, provocative, clever, and sensuous. You immediately detect in the richness of her language the passage of time and her sense of life's underlying ironies. At times you are reminded of the influences of Shawn Colvin, Sting, and Rickie Lee Jones.

Natasha has appeared all over the San Francisco Bay Area-in clubs and highly-sought-after venues. She has performed at private events honoring public elected officials and artists of national acclaim and has worked with esteemed musicians of many disciplines. She received a prestigious invitation to sing at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C in 2001.

Her band is made up of Bay Area first-rate musicians; Jon Evans on bass (Tori Amos), Michael Bluestein on piano and organ (Jaqui Naylor, Shelby Lynn), Geoff Pearlman on guitar (Shelby Lynn), Dan Foltz on drums (Linda Perry), Matt Brubeck on cello (Sheryl Crow). Natasha's debut CD "Her Life" was released on the Poignant Records imprint on March 2 of 2002. A portion of the CD's profits will be dontated to the Flicka (named for opera mezzo Frederica von Stade) and Natasha Fund that benefits the music programs in the Alameda School District) and the Twin Towers Orphan Fund.

Natasha writes all of her material, plays the acoustic guitar, violin, piano and sings. On occasion, members of her string ensemble, The Sapphire String Quartet, as well as guest musicians from her jazz ensemble join her in the studio and on stage.

Natasha heads a music production company, Entire Productions, which currently presents two concert series. Women to Watch features the best women-fronted bands and female solo acoustic acts in the United States, and First Saturdays In Alameda showcases artists from all over the world in a program of monthly acoustic concerts in Alameda, California. The concerts have been standing room only and a portion of the proceeds from these concerts are donated to support music in public schools.
