ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Natalie Walker. Urban Angel. Biography.

Born and raised in Indiana, vocalist Natalie Walker is an artist whose lilting, melodic voice and lyrical reveries reflect a life journey of determination and self-discovery. With musical influences ranging from Alison Krauss to Portishead, Jewel to Lauryn Hill, Beth Orton to Bjork, the former lead singer of downtempo electronic group Daughter Darling now delivers her own unique, haunting sonic landscape that is at once organic, ethereal, elegant and entrancing. “Creating music is my outlet,” says Natalie. “I was born to sing. When I don’t, I feel empty. When I do, I feel fulfilled. It’s that simple.”

Urban Angel, her solo album debut, was co-written by Natalie and two-man production team Stuhr. “I worked with two really great producers out of Brooklyn, Dan Chen and Nate Greenberg. They’d send me the rough copy of a song and the music would just evoke emotion,” she explains. “Its like fitting pieces of a puzzle together. When you’re in the studio recording its all very raw and real. I try to make a song new each time I sing it. I want it to be unforgettable. My producers are amazing. They forced me to develop my real voice. I’ve improved my vibrato and my tone. Stuhr delivered exactly what I asked of them. It couldn’t have happened more perfectly.”

“This album happened so naturally. The music all melds together. It’s chill and non-intrusive, the perfect mellow music at an intimate gathering. Or you can sit back, put your headphones on and really get lost in it,” Natalie suggests. “Urban Angel definitely exudes sensuality, and sexuality, and a little bit of heartache. I really tap into it live. I’m really excited to perform the new material. It’s a true representation of who I am. Urban Angel is a great album. I love it and I’m really proud.”

Excellent electronica singer-songwriter
Such a natural voice is accompanied by downtempo moodiness and it's quite consistent throughout. For me, the evidence of her quality songwriting is that the remix of her song quicksand is just as resonant as the original one she produced. Much more of an ethereal and youthful approach to the sounds of someone of Beth Orton, or everything but the girl.
