Nashville musician Natalie Prass has begun the next phase of her musical journey with the recent release of her self-titled debut album, via Spacebomb records. The Cleveland born singer-songwriter cut her chops playing shows in and around the Virginia beach area, attended Berklee College of Music here in Boston, became a back-up singer for Jenny Lewis, and moved to “Music City” in 2006 to hone her skills.
The album was just released on January 27th and the accolades are already raining down on Prass from all over the music blogosphere, and it was named the Best New Album by Pitchfork. Now that’s something! We here at Music Savage have fallen in love with this record as well and I’m excited to share the gorgeous single, “My Baby Don’t Understand Me,” which is the opening track. Filled with sweeping horns and vibrant strings, along with that dazzling voice, the song begs to make you weep while gently lifting you up.
Natalie Prass will be in town Friday, May 8th to open for Sam Fermin at my favorite venue in the city, The Sinclair. Get your tickets here.
We will have more from her here so do stay tuned.
