Natalie Ross is a sassy and eccentric pop artist who will have you salivating in your seat, well that's if your not up 'n' dancing already. Her finely crafted songs and recordings, all written, co produced, arranged and performed by her ladyship, take an acoustic guitar, kooky vocal style and barbershop style harmonies to a surprisingly accessible sound.  Natalie’s live performance brings new depths with her innovative use of technology. She converses an electrifying twist to homemade and DIY.

      In October 2007 Natalie released her first solo studio album onto itunes, called Trains Go Cha Cha. It was recorded and co produced by Stuart Churchill in Guildford, Surrey.   After the split of her band Natalie Ross & The Renegades, she spent many months writing and performing all over London in preparation for the album.  This was a very experimental time for Natalie as the album was recorded only using an acoustic guitar, her vocals and percussion.  'Me & Delilah' the first single, was aired by Tom Robinson on his BBC Introducing show and he wrote; 'Me and Delilah was a real find for us really early on when we first launched the show. It's an extraordinary piece of music...'

       In November 2009 - November 2010 Natalie co-hosted The Halfmoon Unplugged with Redvers Bailey at the legendary Halfmoon in Putney. Honing her songwriting and performance skills each week led to a new modern 40s/50s pop inspired project.  Natalie was inspired by her love of vintage fashion and style as well as the music from this era and the imagery of the old Hollywood movies.

      Then in May 2010 Natalie released an EP showcasing her residency at The Halfmoon Unplugged simply called 'Natalie Ross live at The Halfmoon Unplugged'.

      'You've got that feeling' Natalie’s next download single released 18th january 2011 was aired many times on BBC Introducing and 6music by Tom Robinson  and he wrote;  "The splendidly eccentric Natalie Ross channels the 1940's/50's harmonies of artists like Doris Day and The Andrews Sisters through 21st Century pop sensibilities. Her bubbly dizzy-blonde stage persona belies a mastery of modern looping technology - and a grasp of the killer hook that sooner or later is bound to deliver a monster hit. In more vulnerable moments on record she's also written some of the most emotionally literate songs I've heard in the past five years."

Phil Jackson's BBC The South Introducing show also aired Natalie's tracks and wrote;

'Wonderful polka-dot pop that would sound as good on your smart phone as it would playing from your nan's vintage transistor'.

       On the 19th September 2011 Natalie released her next EP called 'From my heart to yours', produced by Dean James Barratt at The Dairy, Brixton. The EP consisted of 5 tracks, and featured her new band members Jak Chantler on lead guitar and Trev Lynes on Bass.

        Then in May 2013 Natalie released her latest EP called 'The Thrill of it All '. The EP includes 5 tracks, recorded and produced by Charlie Andrew (Mercury music prize winner for Alt-J Album) Natalie brought in her band including drummer & Keys player Tom Worrall into the studio to record the songs. This EP is darker and sexier than the last.  On stage Natalie was joined by The Vintage Vixens, backing vocalists Emma Ryan and Rohksan Heydari and the band performed EP showcases and a launch party at The Bedford.

       In August  2014 Natalie moved to Barcelona, where she has started her next adventure.  She has performed at many venues around the city and holds a residency every Sunday in a bar in Gracia. Follow Natalie's blog called 'Vintage lover in Barcelona' where she will be sharing her vintage inspired discoveries.  

       Lastly in September 2014 Natalie launched her very own online handmade, made to measure wiggle dress shop called 'Just Wiggle' and has been making wiggle dresses for women all over the world!
