The Perth Blues Club presents Natalie Gillespie
Natalie Gillespie is one of Perth’s most soulful singer/songwriters who takes her audience on a journey many miles deep. A storyteller and a dynamic performer who weaves and grooves her whole heart into every song. Her band and her music are powerful. Having toured nationally and internationally with Yothu Yindi and supported an incredible array of International artists, Natalie just released her second solo album. Working with some of Perth’s most exciting musicians and some of Australia’s most revered and respected talent, including Ian Moss, Dave Brewer, Ben Franz and Clayton Dooley to name a few, the album is a rare treat for lovers of music of the soul. “Survivor smarts, soulful songs and a band that sounds like they’ve been with the singer every step of the road.”– PAUL KELLY.
