Bristol-based singer/songwriter Natalie Holmes writes beautifully honest, level-headed pop/folk tunes brought to life with a delicately angelic voice on a canvas of acoustic guitar and piano. An independent artist building her fan base entirely from scratch, she kick-started her musical career by uploading songs and now has over a million hits on YouTube, thousands of subscribers and a loyal following on social media. Although just into her twenties, Natalie has clocked up three successful EP’s: The Simplest Things, Child and her most recent release, Over & Out all of which featured in the iTunes and Top 10 Singer/Songwriter Charts. This year, Natalie was asked to accompany trance legends ‘Above & Beyond’ as the new female vocalist on their Acoustic II world tour, performing to sold out audiences at the Hollywood Bowl, Royal Albert Hall and Sydney Opera House to name a few. Since Over & Out, Natalie has been writing and making plans for her next solo release, taking time to hone her sound before making her comeback.. ...........Click here for Natalie Holmes website
