Natalie Duncan is a soul and jazz influenced singer -songwriter and pianist from Nottingham, who has been compared to the likes of Alicia Keys and Nina Simone. Her 2012 debut album ‘The devil in me’ received much critical acclaim and in September of that year, aged just 23, she appeared on the BBC programme ‘Later… with Jools Holland’.
The same episode featured the British rock band Muse, who she went on to support in their next European tour. Her cover version of Etta James’ ‘At Last’ featured in an advert for Autotrader. Her 2015 single, ‘Lies’ achieved over 50,000 listens on Spotify in its first month.
Born in Croydon, Natalie moved to Nottingham when she was 11. She displayed a keen interest in music as a child and at age 3 composed her first original tune on a tiny toy keyboard. She began piano lessons at age 5 and, preferring to learn by ear rather than by conventional sight reading, she pursued the ABRSM Jazz Piano syllabus, obtaining her grade 5 qualification when she was 14.
Natalie’s musical influences were quite eclectic – her father had an extensive record collection with a large black music content; as a young child she listened to classical music on The Magical Music Box, and she was taken to see Jools Holland and his Big Band on her 11th birthday, whilst all the time listening to a wide array of music of her choice.
