Natalie Duncan has today premiered her new single titled ‘Found Myself’. With a remix and instrumental, you get a gamut-spanning musical trinity of a song that signifies the transition of an artist and the progression of an art form.
Drenched in soul and doused with the fire of a dedicated artist, ‘Found Myself’ features the beautiful and experienced vocals of Natalie in the original version that looks back at her mentors while looking forward inspirationally. A retro feel gives the track an endearing form.
Now, give the remix a listen just for the simple fact of the ‘blown away’ factor with the 180° turn into something completely different. Not so much for the dance floor as it is for that time in your home where you want to cut loose and no one else is around, the ‘WheelUp Remix’ is not meant for a different audience, but for a different state of mind.
About Natalie Duncan
Nottingham-raised singer/songwriter/pianist Natalie Duncan’s excellent piano playing, and expressive, lyrical voice first came to the attention of those in the know in 2009, at the age of 18, with the release of her debut EP “Natalie Alexis Duncan”. However, it was in 2011 and her involvement in the BBC programme “Goldie’s Band By Royal Appointment”, the three-part series that was the brainchild of drum and bass pioneer Goldie, that she came to wider attention.
Following her appearances on the show, she was signed to Decca Records and produced her first album “Devil in Me”, which was released in 2012 to considerable acclaim with the Guardian declaring “An incandescent star is born”. Towards the end of that same year, she appeared on “Later with Jools Holland” which led to her touring as support for the band Muse.
After returning from Thailand where Goldie facilitated the recording, Duncan released her second album “Free” in the summer of 2020 on Goldie’s Fallen Tree 1Hundred – the album that launched the label. She received excellent critical acclaim from publications including Mojo and Blues and Soul. Echoes and Bandcamp made ‘Free’ their album of the month and Jazz FM awarded record of the week. Duncan launched the album with a live, intimate recording from Ronnie Scott’s and followed that up with a seminal show at London’s Jazz Café.
Back in 2019 and in the spring of 2022, Natalie teamed up with Goldie once more as a guest vocalist on his and James Davidson’s Subjective project. Along with performing as a guest vocalist for the Subjective live shows in the fall and her own sell-out live shows back at Ronnie Scott’s, Natalie is set to join legendary Jazz-funk band Incognito as a vocalist for their 2022 tour.
