Natalie is an experienced and engaging performer who is active throughout the Okanagan valley. She has been a trombone player and vocalist with the Mark Rose Big Band (now the Okanagan Valley Big Band) since 2004, and has been making regular appearances as a solo artist in the Okanagan since 2011.
In addition to playing for private functions, Natalie is an enthusiastic supporter of locally-sponsored events, and has performed for Creative Chaos, the Downtown Vernon Associationís Curbside Live and Avenue Market programs, the Sunshine Festival, and the Vernon Public Art Gallery's Riot on the Roof.
As a solo artist, Natalie uses polished vocals and rhythm guitar to provide intimate renditions of popular favourites from the genres of country, folk-rock and acoustic pop, with flavours of swing, jazz, and blues. As a songwriter, she brings this eclectic mix of genre influences to her original music, which offers a unique, often humourous and always heartfelt perspective on popular music and the world in general. Videos of Natalieís live performances are available on her Youtube channel, while studio recordings and samples of her original music can be found right here on her website.
