Following the great response to his recently released mixtape ‘Out Of Fire’ and a brilliant headline gig at Scala, Natty gears up to release his single ‘Around Here’ feat The Ragga Twins out 26th August 2012.
‘Around Here’ will give his hungry fanbase a taste of the goodness to come. A song for the times; Natty provides social commentary over an old school jungle/reggae infused beat to deliver a smash sure to sit comfortably at radio. Being packaged into a bundle including remixes from the likes of Hostage and Congo Natty, ‘Around Here’ will be available from iTunes on the 26th August. This summer also sees Natty embark on a number of inspiring trips overseas including partnering up with The British Council to perform in Sudan as part of their culture exchange as well as playing at an event hosted by Consolidated Appeals Process (CAP) and The United Nations in New York.
Natty’s talents are as varied as his influences – as a multi-instrumentalist, a producer, a singer songwriter, he has all the tools at hand to bring his musical imagination to life. A 26 year old North Londoner, he was raised on everything from Bob Dylan to Marvin Gaye, learning to play the guitar at 10, but spending his teenage years creating hip-hop beats for rapping mates. The production skills honed in his bedroom eventually landed him a job at premier recording studio Sphere, in Battersea, London. “Everyone passed through that place over four years, from Razorlight to Mos Def,” Inspired by the music around him Natty picked up his guitar again at 18, rediscovering his gift for song writing and landing a deal with Atlantic Records.
2009 saw Natty effortlessly crossover to the mainstream with his acclaimed debut album ‘Man Like I’. Since then, Natty has toured the world playing alongside acts as diverse as Adele, Stephen Marley, Horace Andy, Lee Scratch and Kate Nash. Having taken some time off to travel, spending time in Africa and the Caribbean, he is now hard at work on his new album, recorded between London and Jamaica (where he’s been in at the legendary Tuff Gong studios) and due for release early next year.
