Natalie McCool is an exceptional talent who has taken a particularly pro-active approach to building up her career over the past few years.

She has amassed many industry supporters and is a real triple threat when it comes to her songwriting, performing and vision. Extensive touring and a personable approach to social media has seen her build up a loyal following of fans. Her ability to captivate audiences solo as well as with her full-band shows her versatility and highlights her talent.

Natalie’s self-released album, 2016’s ‘The Great Unknown’, is a bold record that bites. A collection of prickly pop songs with so much depth, exploring the complexities of relationships. Relatable and illuminating.

In 2020 she picked up a sync on an advert for a SKY/HBO production featuring Jude Law and Naomie Harris called The Third Day. A cover of Billy Fury’s Wondrous Place, produced by Steve Levine.

In March 2020 she released the first single from her forthcoming record, ‘Closure’. Instead of supporting this release with a trip to SXSW and a number of live appearances, she kept herself busy with writing sessions and entertaining her fans with regular podcasts and live streams, that later developed into a Patreon offer. Natalie released her second single of 2020, ‘Devils’, in September.

At the start of 2021, alongside a livestreamed performance from new Merseyside venue FUTURE YARD, she announced an early pre-order of her new album in order to fund the manufacture costs. She then followed this with her latest single release ‘A Sun Goes Down’ on February 24th.
