About
A modern day troubadour, Natalie performs across the country tirelessly and just released a new album with producers Charlie Midnight (James Brown) and Mark Needham (The Killers) titled Streetlamp Musician after a song she wrote about street performing and watching New York City change over time.

Raised in the old West Village, NYC stomping ground of songwriting greats, Natalie Gelman grew up amidst artists and true bohemians. She borrowed a friends guitar at 16 and started writing songs on it immediately and began busking on subway platforms soon afterwards when she grew tired of pretending to be 21 to play clubs in the city.

Captivating tourists and straphangers alike in the subway, Natalie stopped even the most hurried commuters in their tracks with her powerful voice. She continues to play what she calls her favorite stage while also performing at the House of Blues, Webster Hall and festivals across the country. Lending support to Bon Jovi, Wyclef, Billy Bob Thornton and the Boxmasters in arenas and theaters across the country Natalie is a world class entertainer.

Compared to Sheryl Crow, Jewel and Joni Mitchell, Natalie's music is contemporary and timeless. She writes honest, heartfelt songs - responding to current affairs and revealing parts of her inner self with the world. "Not too much about her, but somehow about me & everyone in the audience as well."

Natalie has been featured on/in The New York Times, NPR, Good Morning San Diego, FOX, ABC, NBC, New York 1, Voice of America, Music & Musicians Mag, American Songwriter, Songwriter Magazine and more…

"Simply Terrific" 4/4 Stars - The New York Post

"Natalie Gelman is the poster-girl for the solo, storytelling singer-songwriter. …this performer will likely always have a captive audience." - Music Connection

"A phenomenon. By late afternoon on a hot day, many festival goers are tired and starting to drift away. It can be a struggle for performers in that time slot, but it certainly was not for the young singer/songwriter I'd hired. Natalie attracted, and held, the largest audience the Chalet Bowl Stage has ever seen during the last set. That audience included not only those seated, but also people who stood outside the tent until the very end at 5:30. Then they wanted more. They didn't want her to stop singing." --- Candace Brown, Proctor Arts Fest - Tacoma, WA

"From the moment Natalie Gelman took the stage, her soulful voice carried through the event. Art festival attendees and participants alike were entranced by her ballads and artful guitar playing. She is a top-notch performer, tells her personal stories in her lyrics and completely mesmerizes the crowd. We hope she will return to Minnesota very soon!" --- Dolly Parker, Stillwater Arts Festival - Stillwater, MN

She was an excellent singer and entertainer ! She stayed nearly a couple hours beyond her scheduled performance and I was actually concerned during the reception that she needed to take a break and have something to eat. I was just glad that we were able to booked with her on a holiday weekend for my daughter's wedding. It made the night more special and memorable on her special day !

I hired Natalie to perform at my husband's 50th birthday celebration and she was fantastic in every aspect! I found her to be incredibly responsive, warm and professional when we communicated about the plans for the party. She provided a song list that allowed me to make selections and show her what kind of mood we wanted, plus she kindly learned three songs of our choice for the evening. Natalie's voice is beautiful and unique and her talent on the guitar and ukulele are tremendous. We loved the music and our guests were truly blown away! She made the evening so special. Hire her... now.

If you are lucky enough to book Natalie Gelman then I would do it. I requested her through Gigmasters and she quickly responded. She was very accommodating both in designing a perfect play list for the wedding reception and in regards to the timing. I planned a surprise for my bride which Natalie was very ready to coordinate with my photographer and me. Everyone loved her at the dinner and even to her surprise we were all up dancing to her enchanting acoustic guitar. A night to be remembered by all. Thanks Natalie for making it a wonderful evening.

Natalie was wonderful. She was professional, talented, accommodating, and added something so special to our wedding. Her folksy vibe went perfectly with our venue. She learned a song for us and played it beautifully during the ceremony. We also chose one of her original songs to be played during the ceremony and it was great. Our guests were impressed by her and I can honestly say she was one of my favorite parts of my wedding (my husband agrees!). I would highly recommend her!

Thank you so much Melody! It was an honor to work with you and your husband on your wedding music. Love the pieces you chose and had me learn, maybe I’ll see you two at a Patty Griffin concert if she ever tours out here. :) Congrats again!!

Natalie was a wonderful professional and very talented musician. Working with her was like working with a family member. She understood exactly what was needed , And went 180% maybe 200% above and beyond what we were expecting. It was a pleasure working with her and she made my daughter's wedding and intimate memorable experience. we are a fan of hers forever.
