Natalie Forteza

Natalie Forteza is a wonderfully talented singer / songwriter who hails from Mahopac, New York. She has said that her genre is Pop/R&B but I think she goes so much farther beyond that, she truly soars with the jazz tinged feel of her vocals.
A beautiful voice with so much warmth to it.

Natalie Forteza‘s very tight combo are:
Akie Bermiss – Keys
Anthony Candullo – Bass
Erik Perez – Drums

It has to be a real treat to be sitting in some small club in New York listening to this young lady and her combo performing, oh well I can dream.

So enough of the verbiage, let’s get to the music. After all that’s why you came.

We’ll open up with a live performance at Studio 42 and in my humble opinion a much better version than the original. This young lady has the jazz chops to severely improve this song. She sings “I was cold” in a voice so warm it’s wonderful. Just awesome. Oh yeah, a very tight combo there.  I think I have found what I’m looking for.
I still haven’t found what I’m looking for

Here’s a great appearance on the “Live at Daryl’s House Club” .
Not the song I was expecting, but a beautiful song none the less.
This is an original song written by Natalie, a song she really displays her chops on. The combo tight as ever. Another brilliant song.
Man On The Moon

Here’s Natalie, again at Studio 42, singing a wonderful arrangement of the awesome Bob Marley classic. Very different vibe moved away from the reggae to the jazz.
Beautiful.
