Also playing extensively in the UK, Evans has performed alongside acts including Laucan (Sunday Best), Tall Ships (FatCat) and Delta Sleep (Big Scary Monsters). 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 astonishingly high level. These instruments add to her mastery of the guitar, which began as a teen hobby and became something of an obsession when she discovered the finger-picking style that she has gone on to make her mainstay. --------- Natalie Evans is a Brighton based acoustic musician who has drawn her influences from the likes of Owen, Joanna Newsom, Peter Broderick, and St. Vincent. 'Much better is Natalie Evans, whose finger picked pastoral English folk fairs better than the casual strumming of her predecessors.
A distinctive presence, her wirey, feline vocals carry the melodies with confidence. On the evidence of the swarm of punters that descend on her after her set, it would appear she wins few fans too.’ Andrew Valentine (Lounge On The Farm, July 2010) ‘A ginger haired teenage folk minstrel, playing such soft and sweet songs that the audience had to whisper when ordering a drink at the bar.’ Gio Arlotta (The Lexington, Feb. 2010) 'With her debut EP recently finished Natalie Evans has been stunning crowds everywhere with her folk-come 90s shoegaze acoustic loveliness. A girl definitely worth watching.' George White http://www.myspace.com/natalieevanss http://www.facebook.com/natalieevanss#!/natalieevanss Read more on Last.fm.
