Natty is a singer-songwriter and producer, born in San Francisco and raised in London. With his urban blend of Roots-reggae, soulful pop and variety of African sounds, Natty started out playing acoustic shows in local pubs and venues soon after leaving the prestigious Sphere studios where he worked as an engineer and producer for 4 years straight out of school. Very soon he garnered a devout following from these open mic sessions, which lead to music industry exposure.
He released his first album in 2008 which very quickly established Natty as a well-respected songwriter and festival favourite across the world including Japan, where he had a number 1 hit with the single ‘Badman’. Other Live performance highlights include touring with Ziggy Marley around USA, an unauthorised student show in front of thousands in Khartoum,Sudan. Playing at the U.N building on world humanitarian day (NYC, 11/08/2012) etc.. TV Highlights include performing on Later with Jools Holland and The BBC Electric Proms. Collaborations include work with Nitin Sawhney, Roots Manuva, Tony Allen, Busy Signal, The Ragga Twins etc.
A gifted musician, poet and producer, Natty’s soulful melodies, acoustic guitar and conscious lyrics make him an artist not to be missed. 2015 will see the release of Natty’s sophomore album.
