Gearing Up For The Release of Her Highly Anticipated New Album, Natalie Gelman Showcases at The NAMM
New York City born-and-raised modern day troubadour Natalie Gelman’s highly anticipated upcoming album may be still untitled, but the multi-talented singer/songwriter just released a special and fierce video for ‘The Lion’ which premiered with the Huffington Post and "Unopened Letter" a song she crowdsourced with 10 people who had never written a song before. She will be appearing on Friday January 20th at 3pm on the Marriott Stage at The NAMM Show in Anaheim, California and is endorsed by Guild Guitars. "People say I'm disrupting the album cycle but I'm just trying to put out work I believe in. There is no more album cycle in indie music." Gelman, who tours regularly throughout the U.S., is releasing her new LP in 2017 —a twelve track set produced by Charlie Midnight (James Brown) as a follow up to her previous autobiographical nod to her humble beginnings as a street performer in NYC, which included “busking” in the subway. Raised in the old West Village stomping ground of numerous songwriting greats, Gelman—who has been compared favorably to Jewel, Sheryl Crow and Joni Mitchell--grew up amidst artists and true bohemians. She borrowed a friend’s guitar at 16, began composing songs on it immediately and began busking on subway platforms when she grew tired of pretending to be 21 to play clubs in the city. Captivating tourists and straphangers alike in the subway, Gelman 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. In its four star review, The New York Post, echoing many publications across the country, raved “Simply Terrific.” This will be Gelman's 4th official showcase at The NAMM Show. Joining her will be Nathan McEuen.
