About


Nat has been playing the drums since she was only 6 years old.  She has been sitting in with local bands and adult musicians all over Clearwater, Tampa, St. Petersburg and as far as Nashville and Canada since the age 9. The response is always jaw dropping. While performing locally and developing a reputation for her shredding abilities she entered a talent contest sponsored by the St. Pete times taking first place and winning $1000! Shortly after her 10th birthday she caught the eye of a producer from Nashville filming a music based reality show where she was asked to sit in for a taping of the show. That performance ignited an invitation to Nashville to record a demo in Charlie Morgan’s private recording studio; Charlie was Elton John’s drummer for 13 years. While visiting Nashville she sat in with the house band at the legendary venue known to all rising stars in Nashville as “The Stage” where she brought everyone to their feet! This sparked the beginning of Nat’s career which today has her back in the studio at her current age of only 14.   This last summer Natalie was selected to participate in LA’s “Grammy Museum’s Music Revolution Project” along with a very select group of other gifted musicians.  The GMRP provided scholar ships to 24 talented kids ages 14 – 21 to work with Grammy winners and Grammy nominee’s to write, compose and create new genres of music.  The project culminated with an outstanding performance for thousands at Ruth Eckerd Hall this last August. Nat nick named “Nat Drum-Her” has over 100 live stage performances under her belt including TV performances, live radio, and studio session work. Nat has been inspired and taught by a variety of percussion professionals: The infamous John Blackwell, and Vinny Apice to name a few while continuing to hone her skills under the guidance of long time drummer and friend John Spinelli. Natalie is also self taught on the guitar and studies both vocal instruction and acting.  Current endorsements include Ddrum, Zildjian and Seminole Music and Sound.
