“Natalie York is on the rise.” Washingtonian
A recent transplant from Washington DC, Natalie York is a Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter who combines the sass of the Stax soul sound and the sensitivity of contemporary folk to produce viscerally romantic songs to tug at your heartstrings and haunt your dreams. Her debut album, “Threads,” was named one of the best local releases of 2010 by The Washington Post, which highlights Natalie’s “soulful and warm vocals” and “sophisticated palette.” Drawing comparisons to Grace Potter, Corinne Bailey Rae, Norah Jones, Bonnie Raitt and even Janis Joplin, Natalie’s music proves to be something very special all her own. This 22-year-old sensation is a graduate of the University of Miami, where she studied jazz and was the first graduate from the Bruce Hornsby Creative American Music Program. She has performed and worked with Grammy winners Jonny Lang, Bruce Hornsby, Shawn Colvin, Lamont Dozier, Jim Lauderdale, Jon Secada and Phil Ramone.
