Recognized internationally, Natalie prides herself with collaborations with some of the biggest artists in the electronic music genre. After spending a childhood in Canada where her gift for music was first discovered, Natalie continued to develop her talent in Croatia where she enrolled in Vatroslav Lisinski school of music for piano and singing, and The Rock Academy for guitar and orchestra. Natalie believes it was The Rock Academy which formed her into the artist she is today.
