Hearing this song from Nashville singer Natalie Prass had me thinking of sounds both classic and current. Blending elements of soul, R&B, jazz and pop might seem ambitious, but ‘Why Don’t You Believe In Me’ is so wonderfully crafted that it all feels right.
The one thing that struck me upon first listen is how at the forefront Natalie’s vocal track is – and rightfully so – the clarity, tone and range of her voice resembles and showcases a confidence similar to fellow genre explorer Jenny Lewis. The fact that Natalie sings backup in Jenny’s live band might explain that.
The self-titled album from Natalie Prass will be out on January 27, 2015 via Spacebomb Records.
