Solo

Biography

I had the best day a few months ago at the Guild factory in Connecticut. I felt like Charlie in the chocolate factory, getting to choose my guitar! I picked the D55 and I couldn't be happier with it. The rosewood has bloomed and the instrument is getting warmer and darker the more I play it. It has a bright high end without ever being too twangy and that bottom is just, well, right where you want the bottom to be, you know? I have found it's great for me when I'm playing solo or when accompanying someone else- it has enough oomph to fill the space and it's subtle and light enough to let me dance around someone else's songs. Thank you, Guild! I feel so proud to be playing one of your instruments.


 

With diverse influences that include Folk, Jazz, Blues, Rock, Bluegrass, Country and even Classical, Natalia Zukerman has been described by public radio as “an example of the finest Americana.” She combines her unique slide guitar playing style with seductive vocals, a painter’s observing eye, unapologetic writing, and sharp wit. Zukerman’s music is as riddled with urban restlessness as it is grounded in rootsy warmth – a welcome contradiction.

“Natalia’s voice could send an orchid into bloom while her guitar playing can open a beer bottle with its teeth.” –New Yorker

“a strutting brass band one minute, a sighing lover the next.” –The Boston Globe

“a wise mix of rootsy styles from torch blues to country swing. If you’re a fan of Madeleine Peyroux, Bonnie Raitt or even Amy Winehouse, you’ll find stuff to connect with here.” –Philadelphia Daily News

ABOUT “GAS STATION ROSES”
Co-produced with Willy Porter, Zukerman’s new album “Gas Station Roses” exemplifies her electric, acoustic and lap steel guitar playing while featuring guest appearances by performers from many walks of independent music – including Patty LarkinGarrison StarrMeghan Toohey (The Weepies), Adrianne Gonzalez (The Rescues), Todd Sickafoose (Ani Difranco), and Ray Bonneville. An album about seeing and being who you truly are, “Gas Station Roses” is rightfully peppered with a rich array of sounds – everything from Rock anthem “As You Are” to Americana Blues lament “Gas Station Roses,” from NuGrass shuffle “Howard Hughes” to heartfelt love song “Always,” from Contemporary Pop song “Brooklyn” to pure undoctored Folk song “Little Bird.”

Due for release in March 2011, “Gas Station Roses” is available for pre-order now on Natalia’s website and at shows. Some preorder packages include original paintings or prints of paintings by Natalia Zukerman, and a portion of proceeds will go to a New York environmental organization.

Zukerman recently announced, among her album release shows in the Spring of 2011, she will perform a series of dates with Janis Ian and Tom Paxton, not long after touring with Janis Ian in Japan. Additional album release shows will be with Garrison Starr, who sang on “Gas Station Roses.” Full tour and date info atwww.nataliazukerman.com/tourth diverse influences that include Folk, Jazz, Blues, Rock, Bluegrass, Country and even Classical, Natalia Zukerman has been described by public radio as “an example of the finest Americana.” She combines her unique slide guitar playing style with seductive vocals, a painter’s observing eye, unapologetic writing, and sharp wit.
