Natalie Gelman: New York, New York
Natalie Gelman, Singer-Songwriter
New York, New York

Natalie Gelman, a folk-pop singer-songwriter and native New Yorker, made it through the quarnatine by creating a fun and sassy video that captures the craziness of last year with heightened versions of what we may have found ourselves doing at home--complete with camping in a tent in our living rooms. However, Gelman is normally touring throughout the year and 2020 was supposed to find her everywhere from Maui to Munich. While those plans were postponed, Natalie played online shows and trying to stay busy writing and learning to record at home, as well as recently signed with Blue Elan Records. Raised in the old West Village, NYC stomping ground of songwriting greats, Gelman grew up amidst artists and true bohemians. The artist has gone on to open for Bon Jovi, Billy Bob Thornton, and more acts--playing arena stages and touring throughout the world. In June 2021, Natalie released her new album, Moth To The Flame, via Blue Élan Records and looks forward to touring.
