About Natalie Taylor:
Hailing from just outside Birmingham, AL, Natalie Taylor’s influences range from Americana legend, Patty Griffin, to classic country artists, Dixie Chicks and Jo Dee Messina. However, her “vocal training,” as she calls it, comes from 90’s R&B icons Mariah Carey, Boyz II Men, and Destiny’s Child. Natalie has never paid much attention to genres and does not care to. That freedom allows her to be creatively fearless. Huge hooks, an impressive vocal range and true sincerity, coupled with the production genius of Natalie’s husband Jon Howard, former guitarist for Paramore, result in the truly organic, intimate, musical blend that is the Natalie Taylor sound.
The aforementioned elements come together brilliantly on Natalie’s “Surrender.” The track pairs melodic production with Taylor’s emotive vocals that build as she poses the questions “My love, where are you?… Can we surrender?” As “Surrender” continues to grow and tug at listeners’ heartstrings, Natalie is bound to cement her place as an important artist of today.
