Natalia Chai aspires to transcend and unite communities world wide through her voice, lyrics and sound. She wants her listeners to feel hope, be inspired and to believe that anything is possible.
Natalia Chai is a solo, independent R&B/Neosoul singer-songwriter based out of Calgary. An unconventional artist to most, her sound, lyrics and sultry voice have been described by listeners as "honey to the ears" that brings back a hint of nostalgia to old school R&B/soul combined with elements of Neosoul, gospel and jazz. Artists who have influenced her writing include Alicia Keys, PJ Morton, Robert Glasper, Erykah Badu, Maxwell, Nao Yoshioka, Brian McKnight and many more. On March 24, 2017 Natalia released a 4 track EP called "Connections" collaborating with local producer and music engineer Justin McDonough that tackled big society issues from workplace dissatisfaction to refugees displaced by war. A year later in June 2018, Natalia Chai released her first full length LP "Connected" with her first single "S.O.S (SOcial Support)" on January 30, 2018 in support of Bell Lets Talk Day. Natalia sets an intimate stage and loves to have a "one-on-one" conversation with her audience through her music. For bigger stages, Natalia Chai has a group of passionate and talented musicians to round out her "mellow-smooth" sound. 2018 presented her first international opportunity at the Chengdu International Sister Cities Youth Music Festival where she had a once in a lifetime opportunity to showcase R&B/Neosoul to the population of China. "smooth. groove.inspire.believe. stay connected" are the 5 pillars that define her as an artist and person. Natalia Chai's long term trajectory for her music is to connect, inspire everyone to always follow their passion, to grow, and to believe that anything is possible!
