SONG OF THE YEAR

September 9, 2019

​​
We did it!!! We won Song of the Year at the New England Music Awards!!!!!

I cannot thank you all enough for voting for us! This is a huge honor, not only to be recognized for our hard work (& kick ass song!) but also because we produced this song 100% on our own. Everything was tracked in either my studio or Kyle's and we mixed the entire thing ourselves as well. I've been told I'm completely crazyfor wanting to be in charge of the production of my own music, but I truly wouldn't want it any other way. Maybe it's just me, but as the writer of my songs, I think it's SO important to hae my hand in every element of the recording process to make sure everything is moving in the same direction of my overall vision for the song.

So anyways, THANK YOU to everyone who voted, thank you to the New England Music Awards for nominating us and asking us to open the show. This entire experience is extremely humbling & I'm overwhelmingly grateful for everyone involved. Photos & song details below.

With love,
Nat

In the Studio

September 1, 2019

I swear I landed from LA and looked at my studio and just wanted to change everything lol nothing was good enough, HUGE case of the "HOW DID WE DO IT LIKE THIS FOR SO LONG?!" that has taken my the last 3 months since I got home to get a handle on.

Included in that: building a DIY vocal booth to record in, buying a new compressor for my vocal tracking, getting my good keyboard (that's been broke for 3 years) fixed, rewiring basically the whole basement, tuning up guitars, redoing the layout 17 times... just another day in the life right?

Also in that process has been an ever changing discussion of what damn song to release next... but I've finally made my decision!!! The next song is now well under way and the music video planning is next.

Can't wait for you guys to hear it!

Intro

Sup guys! 

So as if I don't already have enough things on my plate, I've decided to start a Vlog series on my YouTube channel!

Why, you ask? Well, shockingly enough, I have a lot to say LOL. No but for real, I realized that I wanted a way to connect with you guys more, and be able to talk about some of the topics I get messages regarding and give you guys longer explanations and more indepth info... holy run-on sentence.

I've released 4 videos so far, all linked here if you want to check them out! 

I would love to hear if anyone has any questions or suggestions for Vlog topics! If so, feel free to leave it in the form below!

Thank you guys so much for following along my journey & giving me a platform where I can give back and share what I've learned in my life/career so far in hopes of inspiring someone or saving them some of the trouble I've gone through.

With love, 
Nat

Dune Jewelry

May 6, 2019

I cannot thank my good friend Sandy at Dune Jewelry enough for this gorgeous, custom-made ring! This company is SO cool, they make beautiful jewelry made of metals and sand from all around the world. Sandy asked me if I had a special location I would like for sand and I told her about my family's vacation home in Maine that I love to go to... she got sand from the EXACT location and made this ring just for me! It is SO special to me.

Check out her stuff here !

Issues by Julia Michaels
Natalie Joly Cover

April 9, 2019

About 7 years ago I started posting covers on YouTube, and through the years I started switching to Facebook, which then had to stop due to copyright issues. Then I went to Instagram because that's where I was getting the most hits... but that leaves me with only a minute for a cover! It just doesn't always feel right cutting the songs up, sooo due to so many people asking, I'm going to start doing more full length versions on YouTube!

Subscribe to my channel here if you haven't already so you never miss them!

Signum Music Company

April 5, 2019

Thank you so much to Signum Cables for making me these custom cables! I'm not big on bright colors, especially on stage. So when they asked what design I would like, I immediately asked if they could keep it classic black and incorporate some kind of metallic, and that's exactly what they did! I truly love these cables... they're handmade in Massachusetts, and have so many different cool designs! 

Check them out here!

La-La Land

March 20, 2019

​​
Los f*%&ing Angeles​​

I gotta say... it's just as amazing as everyone says. I'm still not staying here indefinately, because I know this may come to a shock to some of you but it is HELLA (that's a word right?) expensive here and I don't have a job out here lol so I will be definitely going home to gig and make some dough!


But for the time being I absolutely LOVE it. I'm not much of a city vibe person so I love how relaxed it is here compared to Boston, not to mention all the fun stuff constantly going on and the amazing creative souls I've met. 

Boston will always be home... but this is a close second!

Road to LA

February 20th, 2019


So since I packed basically my entire wardrobe, all my music equipment, and needed wheels in LA, the only logical conclusion was a cross country road trip!!!

My amazing boyfriend Steve offered to take the trip with me (thank you, thank you, thank you!!) and we had a blast! Some pics below of the trip...

Brighton Music Hall - Round 2

January 19, 2019


Brighton round 2! What a fucking night. I can't say thank you enough to everyone who braved the storm to come out and see us. We've spent so much time in the studio recently I almost forgot what it felt like to be on stage with my boys!!

As some of you may know, I just landed in LA for a few months... stay tuned for some exciting things coming up!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

January 1, 2019


OMG how have I not posted on the site in 3 months????? Where the hell is the time going?!

I've been insanely busy gigging & working in the studio... I guess I've officially turned into a cellar dweller lol


I hope all of you had an AMAZING New Years! I got to spend mine with some of my favorite people! My parents, Steve (boyfriend), brother Mike, Mala (brothers gf), Squid & Julie (Squid's girlfriend/girl behind the camera at all of our shows.


I was hired by a friend to play their party, and they let me take all my people! It was SO much fun. I don't get to party with my parents often... I think I need to make it more of a regular thing lol


I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season as well, and wish you all the best that 2019 has to offer! I can tell it's going to be a good one!!

Xo, Nat

In the Studio

October 20th, 2018

I've been pretty quiet about it because we've been super busy and I haven't known exactly what to say about it, but we've been spending a LOT of time in the studio these days. Not only finishing the new song of the video we just shot, but I've decided to just say fuck it and record another album.

Not sure what I'm gonna do with it just yet... but it's been so long since I've recorded a full album, my soul was just dying for it. For those of you who don't know, I've released 3 albums in my life... 2 of which can't even be found on the internet since they were sold out of brown lunch bag in my high school cafeteria lol


I'm so excited for you guys to hear these songs... whenever that may be. I'll keep you posted on release plans once I figure them out somewhat.


Love you all.

All Night Thing III - Bernie's Beach Bar

September 15th, 2018


All Night Thing is a fundraising show put on by my good friend Justin Pacy (and many others...) where we get about 150 musicians in the same place and we all play songs by artists who are no longer with us. The money is donated to amazing causes for suicide prevention and drug related issues. Thank you SO much for everyone that works so hard to put these events together... I'm honored to be a part of such a great cause!
