this-christmas-nbrown-cover-300Whistling, hand claps, funk-strumming guitar, and a boppin’ bass line lay the sonic stage for Natalie Brown’s luminous vocals on “Wish Upon a Star”, the first track of the self-released EP “This Christmas“. The up-tempo jazz-inspired “Spirit of Christmas Time” follows, marrying old-school with new-school before taking the listener back to Natalie’s Pop/R&B roots with the mid-tempo track “Favorite Time of Year”. The EP then settles into the mellow zone with the beautifully rendered ballads “Save the Last Dance” and “This Christmas” – the latter being the title track of the EP and a tribute to Natalie’s mother who lost a valiant battle with cancer in 2013.

Fans of Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys, Sam Smith and Morgan James will definitely find something to enjoy on this Holiday release. With musical influences ranging from Whitney Houston and Aretha Franklin, to Stevie Wonder and Gladys Knight, Natalie Brown’s music is described as uplifting and inspiring and fuses R&B/Pop with Adult Contemporary and a touch of ‘soul’. “When the music began to play and her voice began to sing, I knew that I had to meet her, feel her energy and hear her voice in person. Natalie is alluring and sensual, warm and healing” says Grammy Award-winning R&B and soul singer-songwriter Chrisette Michele.

The “This Christmas” EP was recorded at Natalie Brown’s Studio 302 in Ottawa, Ontario Canada beginning in 2013 and released on November 18th 2014 worldwide via iTunes, Amazon, and a host of other digital stores. With this latest release, Natalie is self-sufficient and (co-) runs her own independent record label, publishing company and recording studio. Preceding this EP were three full-length albums (“Let The Candle Burn”, “Random Thoughts”, and “The Relationship Odyssey”) that contain songs that have been used extensively in Film and TV productions since 2001. Fans and media can find music for download at iTunes, Amazon, Bandcamp, and on Natalie’s official website http://www.natalie-brown.com.

Born in Canada, Natalie Brown‘s passion for music was nurtured from a young age by her involvement in theater, gospel music, creative writing and local session work as a vocalist and writer. With a substantial body of recorded work behind her in addition to this latest release, Natalie is working on a new full-length album due in 2015 and is set to hit the road on tour.

Black Radio Blog: The Relationship Odyssey Shines

Written by purpzderps963 on . Posted in Latest News, Press

Review of “The Relationship Odyssey” by Black Radio Blog Let me get straight to the point. Today’s music is embarrassingly awful and honestly don’t see any hope of today’s music getting any better. Black radio is dead and it seriously needs the second coming, angels, and the heavens to open up for it to be resurrected. I don’t know who in God’s name is making decisions in the music industry continually releasing awful music. They are actually doing it with a serious face.  Today’s producers are getting so much shine and praise when in fact they should be getting walking papers. I am not a conspiracy theorist. But I sometimes believe there is a group of people sitting together in a smoke filled room plotting to kill black music. I am actually being dead serious. But when I hear a new artist like Natalie Brown who comes out of nowhere with a album so wonderfully produced and a voice filled with so much soul and gift, it really makes me question what has happened to leadership in the music industry. ‘The Relationship Odyssey’ should be getting serious radio play. Natalie Brown a Canadian soul/ R&B/Pop singer puts many black artists in the U.S to shame. Many oversees artists respect, understand, and show real appreciation for the real soul and R&B sound.  The Relationship Odyseey shows a love for the old school with ‘Your’re So Into You, and ‘Out the Door.’  Natalie showcases her pop sound with ‘Drifting’ and ‘Cant Leave Can’t Stay’.  The Relationship Odyssey is a rarity in music. Many listeners will be surprised to find out the whole album shines. Read Online Download PDF
