You make me feel like…
Debut album, “Lyubov”.
I’m missing them a lot. Our Jazz mornings.
Can we skip to the good part.
It’s that time of the year!
Like Oil and Water, we’ve got to go our separate ways.
I don’t want to fight it let‘s fly through the rain.
Born in Ukraine, raised in Australia, and settled in Los Angeles, Nataliya has lived a life rooted in the arts. By the time she was eight years old, she was already a national ballroom dance champion. She sang and danced in state and national competitions, telethons and live performances with her performing arts school. As a teenager, she was cast as a regular cast member of the Australian TV shows ‘Trapped’ and ’Castaway", broadcast nationally on the primary network Channel 7. Her success as an actress led to her decision to move to Los Angeles, where she chose to focus her attention on songwriting and signed her first publishing deal with global publishing giant Kobalt Music. As a seasoned songwriter, Nataliya has penned songs like “No More Sad Songs” feat. Machine Gun Kelly by Little Mix from the #1 album “Glory Days” was certified 3x Platinum. Also, “Heavy”, by Anne Marie, from her album “Speak Your Mind,” charted #3 in the UK and was certified Gold. Nataliya has co-written and co-produced many other copyrights, which have garnered over 350 million+ Spotify streams alone.
Her debut single, “Oil&Water”, co-written and co-produced by Nataliya, brings her vulnerability and stately vocal performances to her traditionally crafted songs. It has garnered millions of plays and landed on major Spotify playlists like "Alone Again", amongst thousands of others.
Her smash single “Unbreakable”, in collaboration with the award-winning duo NERVO, was televised globally at the Formula 1 Half-time show in Melbourne, Australia, in 2022.
The trio also performed their song at Avalon music venue in Los Angeles, California, in 2022. "Unbreakable" has gained millions of streaming plays and counting.
Nataliya's latest release is "Lyubov". Her debut album is out now everywhere.
Nataliya wrote, performed, produced, vocally produced, played the piano, and helped mix and master the awaited "Lyubov." Nataliya states, "I had been behind the scenes for so long, writing and creating songs for other artists. I felt it was time to create my own music and release a project. The album title translates to "Love". The tracklist is filled with songs about all kinds of love at different stages. The leading single, "Jazz Mornings", is nostalgic, reflecting on loving moments with an ex. Another song is about my late father, a love lost physically but not spiritually for me. Another is about love that turned to hate, which are situations I always learn and grow from."
Most recently, Nataliya was interviewed for Billboard Magazine, courageously sharing her story concerning sexual harassment within the music industry.
