Natalie Del Carmen has today released her new video for the track titled ‘You Weren’t Even Listening’. Perfectly capturing those times in any relationship that we all talk about, albeit after that relationship, when we all may feel that we were never heard. Or, at least, heard but not listened to. And, to know what I meant with that means that you’ve been there.

But Natalie does this without a somber note as much as a quirky anthem for the downtrodden and upbeat in all of us that can at least learn to listen to ourselves.

About ‘You Weren’t Even Listening’

“You Weren’t Even Listening” stems from Natalie Del Carmen’s desire to reflect the often-overlooked monologues in relationships through her music. The song captures the poignant moment when the realization dawns that despite saying everything, perhaps nothing was truly heard. But it’s not all somber; Natalie Del Carmen infuses the song with her characteristic wit and playful spirit, making the music resonate with a joyful undertone.

The track is an invitation to look beyond the surface of communication, to find humor in misunderstanding, and to embrace the reality that sometimes, even when the listening stops, life goes on. Natalie Del Carmen’s lyrics are clever and insightful, wrapped in the warmth of her embrace, with a delivery that’s both confident and endearing. Reflecting on her collaboration with Burke, she shares, “Working with Zack is always a blast. He’s the kind of producer who really listens and brings every idea to life. It’s like throwing a party where every guest is an idea, and the best one stays for dinner.”

A storyteller at heart, Natalie Del Carmen began her musical journey at the tender age of 8 and has not looked back since. Her music is a constant in her life, a “busy body” that never ceases to inspire and move with her through life’s chapters. Now, at the age of 22, with a solid foundation and a clear vision, Natalie Del Carmen is poised to leave an indelible mark on the Americana scene.

Fresh off the success of her debut album, Bloodline, and her EP, Tandem Songs, she continues to charm listeners with her unique blend of folk, soul, and pop sensibility. The single is a testament to her growth as an artist and her unwavering dedication to her craft, which she honed while earning her Bachelor’s degree in Music from Berklee College of Music and continues to refine with her trusty companion – her grandfather’s 1930s banjo.

About Natalie Del Carmen

Natalie Del Carmen is a 22-year-old musician, songwriter and artist native to Los Angeles. Her musical path has been an acute exploration of the Folk-Americana genres, interwoven with some exciting detours into the realm of pop music at a former time.

Her debut 11-track album, Bloodline, was released in March 2023 and delves into themes of fleeting love, diligence and the passage of time. Working alongside BruNjo down Nashville, TN in the project’s entirety, the title track, “Bloodline,” pays homage to her love of the Nashville terrain, and remains a heartfelt ode to cherished individuals who have played pivotal roles in her life.

Del Carmen’s succeeding EP, Tandem Songs, signals a shift in her musical direction toward the warm embrace of Americana. “Achilles’ Dire End,” produced by Billboard Chart-Topping engineer and songwriter Zack Burke, is a playful tune that explores one’s willingness to love, while “Hollywood Reviews” delves into the modern-day phenomenon of excessive screen time and the insidious habit of comparing one’s life to others in the digital world. Traveling back and forth from LA to Nashville in the summer months, she was lucky enough to work with Wyoming native, Coburn Larsen, for a second time to create “Love in Vain.”

Having earned a Bachelor’s degree in Music from Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA at the age of 21, she immersed herself in the art of Songwriting. Natalie is currently working on her next project in LA, and dedicates many of her waking hours to mastering her new favorite instrument: her grandfather’s 1930s banjo.
