A beguiling mix of acoustic innocence and pure voice, 22-year-old Natalie McCool is already tipped by many to break through nationally. Her debut EP, Shoot Shoot, promises to be one of the music highs of the last quarter of this year.
With accolade from music touchstones Chris Martin and fellow Make It, Break It (MIBI) judge Mark Radcliffe each awarding full marks, Natalie went on to receive this prestigious Award for the UK’s best young songwriters.
MIBI judge, record producer Steve Levine was also impressed when he heard Natalie’s outstanding performance at the MIBI Awards he immediately signed her to his Hubris Records label while she was still studying at the world classÂ Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts.
Achingly raw, beautiful tunes that lean to the darker side of pop and under the guidance of Levine the results are clear.
Natalie also had the privilege of showcasing her songs while studying at LIPA to none other than Sir Paul McCartney, who incidentally, grabbed a guitar and played along to one of her songs, then found a silver sharpie and signed her guitar!
During her time at LIPA Natalie recruited her band and took to the road playing venues across the UK.
