About Natalie...

Raised in the old West Village, NYC stomping ground of songwriting greats, Natalie Gelman grew up amidst artists and true bohemians. She borrowed a friends guitar at 16 and started writing songs on it immediately and began busking on subway platforms soon afterwards when she grew tired of pretending to be 21 to play clubs in the city.

Captivating tourists and straphangers alike in the subway, Natalie stopped even the most hurried commuters in their tracks with her powerful voice. She continues to play what she calls her favorite stage while also performing at the House of Blues, Webster Hall and festivals across the country.

Often compared to Sheryl Crow, Jewel and Joni Mitchell, Natalie’s music is contemporary and timeless. She writes honest, heartfelt songs - responding to current affairs and revealing parts of her inner self with the world. “Not too much about her, but somehow about me & everyone in the audience as well.”

A modern day troubadour, Natalie performs across the country tirelessly and recently completed her first 10 week European tour in support of Streetlamp Musician. An album she released with producers Charlie Midnight (James Brown) and Mark Needham (The Killers) and titled after a song she wrote about street performing and watching New York City change over time.

"Gelman is the poster-girl for the solo, storytelling singer-songwriter. ...this performer will likely always have a captive audience." - Music Connection
