Her undergraduate ethnomusicology thesis entitled “An Island’s Story: Told through the music of Julia Hydes” is celebrated and treasured as the first and only in depth writing on Caymanian folk music and drummer, Miss Julia Hydes. After graduating, Natasha moved to San Diego, California to record her debut album with producer and musician Chad Farran. The exploration of her cultural identity is presented beautifully in her first debut album Between Shores which was awarded Album of the Year by the Cayman Music and Entertainment Association in 2011. In her follow-up EP, “A Tale of One Fish”, Natasha’s evolution as a songwriter and composer shine through in the unconventional rhythms, exotic melodies and poetic imagery of her lyrics. Serenading Renegades is the latest offering from San Diego based chanteuse and pianist Natasha Kozaily. In this 12 song recording Natasha is coming into her own as she weaves a story of love and self-discovery amidst a musical tapestry of soaring melodies and hip-swaying rhythms.
Natasha finds a comfortable middle ground between the experimental and popular which she expresses in her own playful way. Drawing inspiration from her diverse background and musical life, listeners will hear hints of influences from My Brightest Diamond, Regina Spektor and Gotye to the waltz’s of Yann Tiersen and vocal ornamentations of Fairuz.
