In 2004 the music industry will launch over 300 debut female recording artists worldwide. With such competition it is unlikely that many, if any, will successfully build a career. Only the strongest talent will survive and shine out against these odds.
22-year-old Natasha Bedingfield is that talent. She has, quite simply, what it takes. A voice to melt radios. A decade long passion for writing and singing. An image that is defiantly, vigorously her own. And, of course, one of the biggest UK singles of this year so far to her name (chart #3; radio airplay #1, highest played video on MTV). Hailing from London via New Zealand, Natasha Bedingfield is natural, fresh and honest. She is intelligent, emphatic, and confident. And as her chart-topping debut ‘Single’ suggested she is unattached and independent.
It is this flair and personality that shines brightly throughout Natasha Bedingfield’s recordings: “What do I want people to get from my music?’ she ponders ‘Identify with it, be inspired by it, dance to it”. For the past year, Natasha has worked in L.A. and London based studios alongside the world’s finest writers, producers and musicians to deliver a body of work that meets these criteria, and more.
“I wanted to be in a position to choose the album’s direction. That means finding the right collaborators. I love working with people. I love teamwork. I love what can happen when you throw a couple of people in a room and see what comes out. Anything can happen.”
Natasha Bedingfield’s debut album ‘Unwritten’ draws on a range of experiences and passions personal to her – from battling through the dating game (‘Frogs And Princes’), and dealing with the trust issues of falling in love (‘I Bruise Easily’) to learning how to carpe diem (‘If You’re Gonna Jump’) and develop the confidence to take life and own it (‘Unwritten’). Told from the viewpoint of a young woman with her head firmly screwed on, ‘Unwritten’ is fuelled by lyrical sass and real-life suss throughout. Musically the album is inspired by a wide range of influences and styles, from the glam rock of ‘Silent Movie’ through the muscular funk of ‘Single’ to the orchestral majesty of ‘Wild Horses’.
The result? An album packed with winning songs and no irrelevant fillers. An album that speaks the universal language of pop more fluently than most. An album that proves its artist to be refreshingly of-the-moment at the same time as being in it for the long-haul.
