Whether performing beloved vintage tunes with a contemporary twist, cool soul classics or skipping breezily over latin rhythms, Natasha Seale possesses a timeless vocal quality that adapts to any repertoire.
Raised by the sea in Hastings & South Wales, Natasha’s unorthodox upbringing was spent in musically vibrant households. Daughter of a Welsh opera singer and actor, Natasha was exposed to classical music from an early age, discovering soul, Sounds of Blackness, Liane Carroll, Tina May and Sarah Vaughan - in that order as a teen. A swinging love affair ensued with June Christy, Ella, the music of the Gershwin brothers and the Great American Songbook.
Natasha’s relentless exploration of contemporary classic song writers and singers is rooted in her desire to continue the real, resonating story, pull you into the present and make you feel the joy in being in the moment.

This collection of nine self-penned tunes “Timeless torch songs,” “luxurious jazz-pop” - The Musician was described by Nigel Beaham Powell (BASCA, PRS) as “A musically accomplished body of work” whilst Chris Leon of FreshOnTheNet exclaimed “Absolutely fantastic music.What a voice!”
