Natty makes a welcome return with explosive free mixtape OUT OF FIRE, released this week. Currently working on his follow up to 2009's acclaimed debut album Man Like I, OUT OF FIRE will give his hungry fanbase a taste of the goodness to come. A showcase for an artist with a rare musical range, OUT OF FIRE reconfirms what Man Like I indicated: Natty is an artist who can straddle sounds without missing a step and wrap them inside sweet pop twists. Where Man Like I proved his abilities as musician and songwriter, OUT OF FIRE shows he's equally diverse as a studio animal. A singer-songwriter, producer and live dynamo, Natty is a triple threat who can switch from street sounds and lilting pop to tiny clubs and huge arenas without missing a step.
Since releasing top 30 album Man Like I, Natty has been hard at work crafting the hotly anticipated follow-up, building a family, and touring the globe. An unforgettable live performer, the critical and commercial success of Man Like I landed him coveted slots at the iTunes Festival and on Later. With Jools Holland. Natty also collaborated with artists including Tony Allen, Baaba Maal, Roots Manuva, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Oumour Sangare and Nitin Sawhney with whom he co-composed Days of Fire and performed at a sold-out BBC Electric Proms. Since then, he's cemented his reputation as one of the most exciting and charismatic live acts around with triumphant headline shows and gained thousands of new fans by touring with everyone from Adele and Kate Nash to Steven Marley and Lee Scratch Perry. Last year, he undertook his first American tour with Ziggy Marley. Welcomed warmly into the Marley fold, Natty was personally invited by Ziggy to record at the legendary Tuff Gong studios in Jamaica and has since been recording there with renowned producer Clive Hunt for his new album due for release early next year.
