Natalie Metcalf was born and raised in the small town of Collyer, Kansas and although her country roots continue to be her greatest inspiration, she was always bound for the bright lights of a big city. She began singing in the first grade and from there took on everything from guitar and piano to the clarinet and tenor sax. She was a natural-born performer, finding life and passion on the stage as both a musical theater star and an artist/entertainer. She has taken the first place in her division in such esteemed competitions as The Wild West Festival when she was 13 years old as well as The USA World Showcase in Las Vegas when she was a sophomore in high school. Her junior year, she competed in American Idol and was a Hollywood Finalist. When she graduated high school, she set out for Tinsletown and has since flourished immensely.
She attended Musician's Institute where she graduated with a Degree in Vocal Performance. While at school, Natalie asserted herself as a force to be reckoned with, garnering support from her teachers and peers alike. Her professionalism and poise were far beyond her years and she was in high demand in the LA musical community. She sang in many bands while working on her own solo project.
In 2014 she released her first solo album "Detour." She spent the next couple years playing in venues across Los Angeles and hitting the road for tours back through her home stopping ground, the Mid-West. Although Natalie loves the west coast with all her heart, she longed to take her music more places and somewhere closer to her roots.
In April of 2017 she packed up her belongings, said her, "I'll see you agains", and moved to Texas. She does have a bit of exciting news up her sleeve though, before she left she recorded her second solo album. This album will be a 6 pack of songs embracing her new acoustic style. She plans to release it in the beginning of 2018.
Natalie says, "I'm so grateful that I get to be a musician. There's nothing that makes me happier than to sing and song write. There is just something magical when a voice and an instrument can come together in a melody, to tell the story that is written in a song." Her personal style is a unique mix of country, pop, blues, and southern rock, drawing inspiration from artists such as Alan Jackson, Jewel and Sheryl Crow. She writes songs with such a sweet and personal nature, the audience can't help but be captivated, and immediately enamored.
