Natalia Chai is a solo, independent R&B/Neosoul/Hip-hop singerer-songwriter based out of Edmonton. An unconventional combination to most but will turn curious ears to the sounds and stories of real life issues. On March 24, 2017 Natalia released a 4 track EP called Connections collaborating with local producer and music engineer Justin McDonough. This was a small album that tackled big society issues from workplace dissatisfaction to refugees displaced by war. Natalia was trained classically in piano since the age of 6, but quickly developed her love for R&B and Neosoul after listening to artists such as Alicia Keys, Maxwell, Erykah Badu, Brian Mcknight, Jodeci and Lauryn Hill. Natalia sets an intimate stage and loves to have a "one-on-one" conversation with her audience through her music and voice that is like "honey to the ears". Natalia is also a pharmacist, avid fashion and music blogger and hopes to inspire youth to become strong, independent, beautiful and compassionate individuals. Although new to the YEG music scene, Natalia has performed at many live venues and also had the opportunity to share her sound at a couple of festivals in Calgary. Natalia is back in the studio in 2018 with the anticipation of releasing her first full length LP, CONNECTED by spring/summer of this year and has already released 2 singles to keep her listeners' coming back for more. 2018 is off to a big start with the release of her first single, SOS aimed to bring mental awareness where 100% proceeds will be donated to the Canadian Mental Health Association. Like many singer-songwriters, Natalia hopes that her stories and sound will resonate and bring positive change to others and hopes that her music dreams will become a reality one music note at a time!
