UK Rock singer, NATASCHA SOHL, loves performing on any size of stage from intimate private parties to sold-out arenas. Born in Paris and a twin, she showed musical promise from childhood but formed her first band while at Sixth Form College. Later she ditched her University media degree in favour of a Higher Diploma in Vocals from a music college.
She wrote and released her first Album – STRANGE FASCINATION – in 2004 through Indie label, Granite Music, and received excellent critical notices from press and industry. Album No. 2 – DIRTY LITTLE WORD – was written and recorded in New York at the invitation of A-list song-writer/producer Russ DeSalvo and his team, which has brought Natascha support in the New York, Los Angeles and Nashville music scenes, together with US management. The album was released in April 2010.
In America, Natascha has gigged on the Camplified tour twice, has done various shows in New York, a Festival in Rhode Island, a student workshop at the University of Massachusetts in Boston, and made radio and TV appearances for EXPN, Sirius Radio, Fox TV and CW11 respectively. In the UK she has also performed all over the country at numerous colleges, schools and music venues and has appeared on various radio and TV stations, both with her band and acoustically.
In 2007, two of her songs (BODY BEAUTIFUL and AFTERGLOW) were Runners-Up in international song competitions and 4 other tracks from the Album, DIRTY LITTLE WORD (NAKED, I’M SO HAPPY, BEAUTY IN THE SILENCE and FADE) were featured on MTV’s mega-hit show, The Hills, with FADE used again in another MTV show, Newport Harbor (with a listed end credit), and BODY BEAUTIFUL used in MTV show, Legally Blonde, in 2008.
Natascha flies the flag for British music and home-grown talent. She has an excellent work ethic, genuine star quality and charismatic stage presence, whether with her band or acoustically. Natascha is an artist whose music, from gut-wrenching ballads to full-on stadium anthems, has something for everyone.
