RGM INTRODUCING – WE INTERVIEW LA ARTIST NATALIE CLARK
Whats the biggest thing you have learned from someone else in the industry?
Just to be yourself! It’s easy to get caught up in comparing or trying to fit a mould, but I think the best music or art comes from just being truly who you are!
Tell us Two truths and a lie about you?
I fell off a castle wall and broke my leg when I was growing up in Scotland.
I have an honors degree in Psychology specializing in Cognitive Neuroscience.
I can cook!
If you could wish for one thing to aid your career what would it be?
I suppose just the opportunity to spread my music as far and wide as possible! I’m excited at the thought of touring and playing all over the world!
Do you ever worry about people taking things the wrong way or cancel culture? Discuss….
I think I do worry sometimes about what people think and about being careful what I say, so as not to offend anyone! I think cancel culture is a bit scary and doesn’t leave much room for growth or forgiveness at times! At the end of the day, we’re all human and can make mistakes. I do try and be responsible for what I say though and try my best to be thoughtful.
What was the worst experience on stage?
Probably any time I’ve forgotten the words to a song! When my mind has gone completely blank and the panic starts! Ha!
Tell us something about you that you think people would be surprised about?
Probably my degree in cognitive neuroscience – not much to do with my music career now! Ha! (I think I just gave away the previous question about 2 truths and a lie!)
What makes you stand out as a band/artist?
I think the fact that I’m Scottish and based in L.A is a bit different as I haven’t met any other Scottish artists out here!
I hear you have a new music, what can you tell us about it.
My new song FREEDOM is a song from my upcoming EP. I’m so excited to get it out there! It’s a bit different for me. The message is positive, like my other songs but the sound is a bit grittier and darker I think!
What was the recording process like?
The song was produced by Todd Spadafore, an incredible producer based here in L.A. I brought the song to him and instantly he got the vibe I was going for! I wanted it to hit the listener hard!
What was the biggest learning curve in writing the new tunes?
I think it’s the importance of trusting your instinct when it comes to production or how a song should sound. I think it’s great to get feedback and opinions about what you’re making, but ultimately you have to trust your own ear and make sure you feel good about how a song sounds before releasing it into the world!
Would you change anything now its finished?
No, I think once I’ve worked on something and taken it to a place where I don’t have any notes or edits I can think of, it’s good just to let it go! Otherwise I would constantly be wanting to revise and change things and nothing would get finished!
Is there anything else you would like to share with the world?
I’m so excited to share all the new music I’ve been working on! My full EP is coming pretty soon and I’m excited to share it with you all and perform these songs live on tour!
