TORONTO (Sasha Stoltz Publicity): Long Road is the debut album for Natasha Waterman, and it has definitely been a long road for her. She has found success as a songwriter for several Canadian artists as well as writing the theme for the Hill Harper film Love, Sex, and Eating the Blues. “The album is going against the grain. It’s got soul, but it’s got an easy rock” Natasha states, who has been singing for the past decade. Like Sean Jones’ music similar to Usher and Lenny Kravitz. Critics and fans compare Natasha to superstars like Sting, Alicia Keys, The Beatles, Tina Turner, and Arie.
“My music is timeless. Ten years down the road,” she said, “it’ll still sound the same. In writing for other people, I found out what kind of artist I am. My sound is my own. It’s a heartfelt album; it’s about life and love.”
Though she is new on the scene as a solo artist, the engine is about to fire up and get ready to go, with a recent live show at the Chic Lounge late Thursday night, and she is looking forward to tour in April 2010.
With Long Road, people are able to understand the honest lyrics due to the recent revelations of Tiger Woods’ adultery that may have not put a damper on his golf career, but it has tainted his image as a beloved family man. “I’m a very modest person” Natasha humbles, “but there are five solid tracks that stand out like ‘All I Wanna Do’, ‘All I’ve Ever Known’, ‘Speechless’, ‘Where the Ocean Meets the Sky’, and ‘Confessions’. I’ve read from my heart. ‘Confessions’ is more than the women did wrong than the man. It’s not about adultery; it’s about doing wrong. Long Road will hit home for a lot of people.”
