I have listened to all of (Natalie Hamilton's) available music. I do not say this very often, but I was deeply moved by what I heard. The songs themselves were direct, seemingly written and sung without artifice. (She) could have simply sung them with a ukulele with that glorious voice, and hit anyone who heard them in the gut. That said, when paired with such high production values, the entirety of it is a sensual and spiritual encounter as well as poetic experience - one that is immediate, and, as the late poet Ted Berrigan once wrote: “Marvelous, feminine, and tough.
This is not so strange a pairing I think; one looks at the statue of The Ecstasy of St. Teresa by Bernini, and sees that the spiritual can indeed be sensual and the two combine in something almost beyond language itself to convey something more. In the grain of (Natalie Hamilton's) voice I can hear it.
In any case, I’m digressing. I simply wonder where the hell she's been as a songwriter and why she hadn’t crossed my radar before? "

I love Natalie's narrative lyrical style...like Joni Mitchell's 'The Hissing of Summer Lawns'...

Natalie Hamilton is able to say more with humming than most singers can say with words...She possesses an innate ability to create a mood... “reminiscent of a young Barbra Streisand.”
Sandy Cooperman -- The Charlotte Sun
“She (Hamilton) is a rare find in an industry bathing in the merits of glitzy production value. And if anything could be delivered with more certainty, it’s that Hamilton's career will outlast her own expectations as long as she continues to deliver songs with such heartfelt poise and honesty.”
