The long-awaited Sophomore release by singer/songwriter Natalie Brown features soulful Pop compositions that experiment with a variety of thematic and musical thoughts.
Let me tell you a few interesting (and some not so interesting) things about myself…
I am Canadian! Yeah, Canucklehead in the house. I’m a vocalist and songwriter. My music has been described as Pop/Blue-eyed Soul (tho my eyes are technically green)/Nu-R&B and I run my own publishing company, natfunk music (BMI). I love animals - cats in particular. Music is my reason for living. I studied Seth Riggs' renowned Speech Level Singing™ method for a couple of years with vocal instructor Dave Stroud in San Francisco. I once worked as a runner for a freight forwarding company at the Canadian border. My lowest low and highest high spans four and a half octaves. I am a reformed nail biter.
I currently call Maryland USA and Toronto CANADA "home"; although I really enjoyed the time I spent living in Northern California in the late 90's. My age is nobody's business. Right now I enjoy listening to Maroon 5, Alicia Keys, Rihanna, Adele, Citizen Cope and Chrisette Michele. Dark, fizzy drinks make me break out. When I was a kid I used to jump off of fences and try to fly, but now I just jump out of planes. I was diagnosed with Bi-Polar disorder, but I don’t take my meds anymore - and I’m doing just fine! I’m the one you’ll hear laughing out loud at the stupid jokes no one else gets at the movie theatre.
I've released 2 full-length original albums (‘LET THE CANDLE BURN’ and ‘RANDOM THOUGHTS’) and a bunch of singles you’ve probably heard in a movie or TV show somewhere. I’m very loyal to people I love. I was offered a deal by a major label to ‘battle’ Alicia Keys. I’m glad I didn’t. I try to live 9 lives simultaneously. I have the worst potty mouth you could ever imagine! I know flowers speak to us. I learned a lot about patience while building my studio (Studio 302) where my latest album was recorded. I have an eBay addiction and a fetish for exotic pens and markers.
OK, I think I’ve said enough now.
