The beauty and pain of life, love and feeling is what inspires Natalie Edward to write. Her lyrics portray a world of heartache, but also a world of love and growth. Natalie sings with a truth in every song that cannot be denied, and uses that undeniable truth to get under your skin. Influences come from Sarah McLachlan and Jewel to Our Lady Peace and the Cranberries, but Natalie doesn't stop there. Her roots go all the way down to her parents' early repertoire of the B52's and Barbara Streisand. Natalie grew up in the Suburbs of Toronto, Ontario, but moved to Vancouver at the age of 18, which was when the EP project 'October' was born. Being alone in a new city was what forced her to dig deep and discover what was inside. October, released in 2007, portrays the very beginning of her journey. To Natalie, music is not just a career, or hobby. It's a way of life, and the way of life that she chooses. She is never as happy and fulfilled as she is when standing in front of a crowd, singing her heart out. With the start of a new year, Natalie will start to emerge into the West Coast Independent music scene, and following that, the Canadian, and North American scene.. And finally she'll be sharing her heart and soul with the world. Get ready World, to embrace Natalie Edward.
