Natalie Pearson is making her mark on the Australian pop-country scene, gaining attention for her emotive dynamic vocals and girl-next-door charisma.
She performed at the Tamworth Country Music Festival 2017, where she introduced listeners to tracks off her recently released record ‘Long Time Coming’, which debuted at #2 on the Australian Country iTunes Chart, just behind Little Big Town. The record also hit #33 on the overall Australian iTunes Chart.
The first single off the 7 track EP, “Chance at Love”, received the award for “Best Country” in the 2016 MusicOz Australian Independent Music Awards, which she performed on the main stage of the Enmore Theatre, Sydney in October 2016 for the sold out red carpet event. She also received a Top 5 nomination in both the Video and Female Artist of the Year categories.
‘Chance at Love’ ranked #4 on the AMRAP Regional Charts shortly after release, and is receiving airplay on KIX Country Network, National and Community Radio and Foxtel’s Country Music Channel, along with recently released singles ‘Don’t Ask Me This’ and ‘Strangers’.
‘Don’t Ask Me This’ became a fan favourite after it was featured on the Spotify “Fresh Country” playlist and has been selected to be included in the soundtrack for Australian film ‘The Fenian’, due for release later this year.
Natalie was voted WA’s RAW: Musician of the Year in 2015, opened for Jessica Mauboy and Nathaniel at their Perth show, and performed alongside country artists, Matt Cornell, Casey Barnes and 2017 Toyota Starmaker Finalist Brook Chivell at the 2017 Gympie Music Muster.
