Natasha Blaine is a Nashville-based singer and songwriter from Seattle, Washington. She blends roots in vocal jazz with soul, R&B, and pop music—citing great influence from artists like D'Angelo, Lianne La Havas, Amy Winehouse, and Emily King. Her songwriting, described as "direct, unfiltered and emotionally immediate,” buttery vocals, and energizing live shows have quickly caught the attention of the Nashville music scene.
At six years old, Blaine started singing jazz. Her grandmother kept Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday records on repeat, teaching Blaine the words to old standards. And when she wouldn’t stop singing them during kindergarten, her grandmother put her in voice lessons. Blaine picked up guitar at nine, sparking a love for songwriting before she even hit middle school.
In 2018, while Blaine spent a few months studying literature in London, England, she made the decision to move from Seattle to Nashville, Tennessee. She wound up attending Vanderbilt University, getting a degree in literature and becoming the school’s first vocal jazz student. Before graduating in 2021, she became heavily involved in the famous Nashville writers’ round circuit, writing songs between classes and gigging at night.
Since the 2021 release of her debut EP, I Fall in Love Too Easily, Blaine has played many iconic Nashville venues like The Basement, The Analog, The 5 Spot, and sold out The Listening Room and Rudy's Jazz Room.
