Healing. Helping. A haunting hell of a good time. Part sage, part sprite, singer/songwriter Natalie Huggins is known for sensual, nostalgic compositions that somehow make the listener feel as though their feet are grounded in the loveliest, woodsiest soil while their head is taking flight and soaring somewhere else altogether.
The power of Natalie’s songs lies in their open-endedness–in their ability to connect the listener to the parts of themselves they can’t yet see and reveal a truer version of themselves. As a child, Natalie was gripped by the process of songwriting and by her ability to connect with listeners, offering them an escape, a companion, a dream. Composing, singing, and playing guitar and piano since childhood, Natalie’s work is heavily informed by Fleetwood Mac, Pat Benetar, No Doubt, Smashing Pumpkins, Bjork, Tori Amos, and PJ Harvey. A St. Louis native, she has performed and recorded with numerous artists and projects in the area including Summer Magic, Joan of Dark, The Bureau, Rats and People Motion Picture Orchestra, Wax Wine, and more.
Her first full-length album, “Split Oceans” is scheduled for release [coming soon]. A collaborative effort between Huggins and producer Kevin Bachmann, the project began in August 2016 and is a long-awaited culmination of Natalie’s growth and experiences over the past decade. A representation of Natalie herself, the album is powerful, nostalgic, sparkly, and sensual. The album teems with relatable themes including the cycles of relationships, grief and loss, isolation in the modern world, and love and forgiveness.
Writing and performing music brings Natalie’s personality and thoughts to life at their clearest, most elemental form. In performing, her diverse purposes all come together, bringing Natalie to the truest version of herself. She hopes the same is true for her audience–that in listening, they can discover the nostalgia, joy, wonder, and clarity they’re looking for.
