Serenading Renegades is the latest offering from San Diego based chanteuse and pianist Natasha Kozaily. In this 12 song recording Natasha is coming into her own as she weaves a story of love and self-discovery amidst a musical tapestry of soaring melodies and hip-swaying rhythms.
After exploring the realms of jazz and classical music in her EP A Tale of One Fish, Natasha finds a comfortable middle ground between the experimental and popular which she expresses in her own playful way. Drawing inspiration from her diverse cultural background and musical life, listeners will hear hints of influences from My Brightest Diamond, Regina Spektor and Gotye to the waltz’s of Yann Tiersen and vocal ornamentations of Fairuz.
Serenading Renegades spans the lifetime of a great love from conception to death with a sparkle of hope and the exploration of loneliness and compassion in the story songs of The Tiniest Elephant in the World and A Song About A Tree.
