Ageing A&Rs recruit young girls to cover the classics while cool hunters help legends chase youth. Natalie Maddix plays no part in the musical merry-go-round. The South London singer/songwriter is what she is an original new voice with a soul that belies her years. Brixton born and raised, hers is a sound tempered by summer barbeques, late night blues and her mothers Beres Hammond, Sanchez and Marcia Griffiths 45s. Already a seasoned live performer, Natalie is at ease with her audience, whether showcasing that rich and powerful voice or sharing a story that inspired her next number.
