ABOUT

New Orleans, LA based singer that vocally flows between R&B, gospel, smooth pop, hip-hop and rock.

In school, I was the goofy, smart, extroverted girl who would not stop dancing or singing!! I loved all things that were creative and inspired from imagination. Now... I do that for a living through music.

I got my start in music growing up in church. I sang in the kids choirs, sang at school, and with groups of friends. I started playing instruments at 11, by 13 I started writing poetry, and then moved on to writing songs. I started taking music more seriously and started recording music in highschool by friends houses. Sometimes we would stand in those sweaty closets and swear we'd just recorded the best songs in history.

 

After highschool, I became a mother, went to college and started a career in I.T.  After a few years went by, I realized that I was not as happy because I wasnt following my passion.

 

In 2014, I had an opportunity to do the Pregame show for the Saints in Champion Square.. I had no idea what to expect. Getting on that stage to perform and seeing the crowd was crazy!! I made the decision at the moment to get back to what I loved and I havent had a regret since. Music and performing gave me my life back.

Now 2019, I have my own business in music, my own band and life is getting better daily. I'm greatful for all of the experiences because it has created a stronger person inside of me.

I will not be the first or the last to say, "none of this is easy... but its definitely worth it".

These days Natalie Cris band plays on Frenchmen Street in New Orleans. Thats where you'll catch me for sure.. In my spare time, I'm usually spending time with the kids, at home creating, or watching some friends perform at their gigs. 

In the future, I'm definitely looking to tour, do festivals, concerts, etc. I want the entire experience... the good and the bad. I want the stories that come out of what we do to be told in my music and reach other girls and women like me. The ones who find love all over again through their passion

Natalie Cris is true to her artistry and to herself on and off  the stage
