In a musical landscape saturated by hype and production, Natalie Hart has something timeless, yet distinct: a voice. And she’s slowly but surely found it.
Brought up in a musical household in Dallas, TX (her grandfather was a pilot in the U.S. Air Force and a church music minister; her dad is in a barbershop quartet), Natalie was introduced to special voices early on. Named after Nat King Cole’s daughter, she grew up listening to Sarah Vaughan; Nina Simone; Bing Crosby; Tony Bennett. The uniqueness and singularity of a powerful, vulnerable voice stood out and began her musical journey to find her own.
After attending school in Nashville as a music business major, she found herself at a crossroads. Work to get the voices of other artist’s heard as a behind-the-scenes player, or go out on a limb and make her own music. After a sit-down with a boss who told her to go for it (and a lot of soul-searching), she set off writing her recently released project “Hang The Moon”. A self-funded project that took her everywhere from the West Village to Studio City, Hang The Moon is a fresh pop take on the powerful vocal theatrics of eras past. It’s something new.
Now living in New York City, Natalie Hart is ready to make her voice known.
