Natalie Storm reps for Stella McCartney
Dancehall princess Natalie Storm is stepping her game up. Her bounce-heavy single “Dip and Fall Back” was among the tracks selected recently to accompany models down the runway at ace fashion designer Stella McCartney’s Fall/Winter 2009 show in New York. But that’s not all she’s been up to. The fast-rising artiste, known for her edgy style - a blend of punk-rock meets dancehall sass - was recently in NY C recording new material, performing and appearing at high-profile events. Natalie was flown in by DJ Max Glazer’s Business Class Records to record several songs with her T.N.T family (Tifa and Timberlee) for an upcoming release. She also began recording several brand new songs for her own album.
While in New York, she was a special guest at the grand opening of the Sunglass Hut flagship store in mid-Manhattan along with some of New York's most fashionable and influential trendsetters. While there, the singer did interviews with media outlets including Fader Magazine, World Flavas Radio and Pat McKay on Sirius Radio, and later ripped the stage with other dancehall acts at Federation Sound’s 10th Anniversary show at Club Santos. "I really really loved the vibe of the whole trip, I got crazy stuff done in a short time and most importantly met with some major figures in the overseas music industry," she said. "It gives me even more strength and motivation to push my music and my style to the world."
Back in Jamaica, she is working on her debut riddim "Firestorm", and recently recorded a new single for producer Skatta's Hindu riddim, and is gearing up to shoot two new music videos. For more on Natalie Storm: myspace.com/nataliestorm
