"Natalie Young’s sophomore release “Natalie” is a giant leap forward for the singer/songwriter. While the powerful songwriting evidenced in her first release remains, on this project Natalie enlisted the aid of the award winning Positive Jewish LivingTM creative team of Beth Schafer and her producer/engineer John Marsden. Schafer & Marsden wrapped Natalie’s beautiful melodies and soaring voice in lush guitars, hypnotic rhythms, and angelic harmonies. Special guests on the release include sax & flute from Charlie DeChant of Hall & Oates, and the drumming talents of Charlie Morgan of Elton John’s band. From the start of the CD’s first track, the sing-along “Halleluyah,” it’s clear that Natalie has a gift for writing melodies that are memorable, singable, joyful and when combined with sacred texts, ultimately Jewish! Her voice wraps the listener in a warm loving embrace that leaves you full of contentment and peace. Project highlights include her 6/8 infused “Hinei Mah Tov,” the hypnotic cadence of “God of Creation,” and the world beat influenced “Adonai S'fatai.” The 8 songs on this release leave you feeling as if you’ve been touched by the Divine, and come away knowing that love will conquer all. This isn’t just music for worship, it’s music for living!"
