Collection: Natalie Evans

   


 

 

Fusing a virtuosic talent on guitar, harp and piano with a distinctive playing style and finely tuned songwriting sensibilities, Kent-born Londoner Natalie Evans’ music glows with a rare self-contained grace, as she wraps her minimalist and deceptively simple lyrical lines in winning hooks and harmonies.

Evans' second album 'Movements' is due to be released on Small Pond Records in 2022. Her new songs have continued to luxuriate in the vivid minutiae of life, channeling themes of nostalgia, the passing of time and human connection with a poetic lightness of touch. Her 2018 debut album ‘Better At Night’ saw her intricate compositions and characterful vocals reaching more ears than ever before, followed by her two track single 'Pavements' the following year. While winning new fans, this material was also met with excitement by early followers of her work, which includes her debut EP ‘Houses’, guest vocals on Delta Sleep’s ‘Camp Adventure’ and her split release with US star Yvette Young.

Natalie Evans has inspired comparisons with folk sensation and fellow harpist Joanna Newsom, while she is also influenced as a songwriter by artists such as Peter Broderick, Julien Baker, Moses Sumney and The Japanese House. She has played extensively in the UK including tours with Katie Malco, Bonniesongs and Gulfer, and alongside other established acts including Angelo De Augustine, A.A. Williams, Tricot, and Tera Melos.

Although she’d had no classical training, a fascination with classical music inspired Evans to learn piano and harp in recent years, her talent and studious approach leading her to achieve an exceptionally high standard. These instruments add to her mastery of the guitar, which began as a teen hobby and grew to something of an obsession when she discovered the finger-picking style that she subsequently became known from.
