Natalie Clark is Invading America 

The Scottish pop singer-songwriter who could storm the world

binary-viewer-3.jpg

Two years ago, Natalie Clark found two very important fans: The Scottish soul-pop singer had already determined to ditch her teaching job and pursue a dream to be a singer when Richard Branson, best known for launching Virgin Records, called her up to stage at a BBC event in Glasgow. She accepted the challenge, and belted out a beautiful a cappella version of her own song, "Weakness."

Branson, who has been around the block more than a few times, was stunned. "That was absolutely and utterly stunning," he proclaimed, the same sort of praise that launches careers from "The Voice" or "America's Got Talent" in the United States.

Soon after, she gained another fan, Nick Grimshaw with the BBC Radio 1's Breakfast Show. With a wide reach throughout the United Kingdom, the airplay he provided was enough to convince Clark to pack up her self-released debut EP Eagles and head to Los Angeles to conquer America as well.

For the past year, in hopes of gaining a following in the United States, Clark has been recording, performing, and writing in her new home. Last summer, she toured the East Coast, and this spring she is working her way up the West Coast.

Currently the singer-songwriter performs both original songs as well as creative covers of popular (and controversial) hits like Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" and Jessie J's "Bang Bang."

Her original songs follow this same tenor—upbeat tunes that intend to leave the listener feeling warm and fuzzy inside. Her lyrics are catchy and likely to be hummed long after the show.
