Natassja is a soul music artist whose contribution to the genre challenges the notion of what contemporary soul music should be. Her urban-influenced and sometimes moody, folk-tinged arias involve more than a moderate degree of genre bending. This is an artist who is just as comfortable listening to the gritty elements of southern "trap" music as she is listening to Raheem DeVaughn soul, or the music of Clannad, Bjork and Thunderheist. From the folk of Dylan and Baez to the contemporary styling of Sade and Sting, Natassja steeps herself in music that moves the spirit.
Performances begin at 7:30pm sharp with 8 participants getting a 15 minute slot. The winner (determined by crowd response, our gracious host Keena, and the RLC Staff) receives a $25 RLC gift certificate, a recording of their performance featured on RedLightCafe.com, and a spot in our Americana Showcase (stay tuned for more details on that). This week's spotlight artist, Natassja, performs at 9:45pm.
Online sign ups end at 6pm day-of-show. Good luck, and make us proud!
