Growing up in a big city (St. Petersburg, Russia), Natalia was exposed to culture and performing arts at an early age and spent much of her time singing and dancing in children's groups. After graduating from high school Natalia received a scholarship and attended the prestigious Jagellonian University in Krakow, Poland. She sang in clubs and danced in a student group throughout her college years and graduated with a masters degree in linguistics before moving to the United States. There, she started taking voice lessons, specializing in jazz, Broadway and pop and, after two years of living in the US, Natalia was encouraged by a friend to start writing her own songs in English: I had never done it before and was really surprised how melodies and lyrics would pour out of me.
While in the U.S. Natalia discovered that a lot of artists were following the DIY ethic. She quickly adopted this Do it Yourself ethic as her own philosophy. She does everything- songwriting, management, executive production of her EP, the artwork.. everything. She knows what she wants and how she wants to do it.
