Product Description

Product Description

Two years ago, Natalie Duncan was approached by Goldie to work on a music project he was doing with the BBC. This led to a fruitful partnership culminating in the single "Freedom". Since then, Natalie has turned her demos, recorded on a basic 8-track, into a fully-fledged debut album, produced by Joe Henry, titled Devil In Me. A blend of classic soul, R&B and pop, the album features lead single "Sky Is Falling".

BBC Review

Imagine if Paloma Faith could sing as well as she dresses: what a world that would be! Especially if she genuinely had the kind of eccentric baroque soul and jazz material that best suits her provocative mode of performance.

Think of the musical box of delights from which she could choose. Little classical piano motifs among the painstakingly recreated torch songs; a clanging Portishead hammer dulcimer to add tartness to the sweet ballads; an occasional high-kicking bridge to Broadway and back. Why, that’s the kind of heady concoction that could knock the hardiest sailor back on his heels.

Natalie Duncan, BBC reality TV graduate (she appeared on Goldie's Band: By Royal Appointment) and possessor of some remarkable elegantly distressed vocal folds for a 22-year-old, has gone some distance towards making that thought a reality. Her songs, while usually operating within an easily recognisable genre – soul, blues, jazz or reggae, mostly – will often bring in some idiosyncratic little touch, just to class things up a bit.

Examples are plentiful. The formal piano and cello recital that opens Old Rock; the backwards guitar at the end of She Done Died; or the fact that Lonely Child has pinched the chorus from Shine On You Crazy Diamond. The latter situation serves to prove that Pink Floyd had more than a little soul in their monolithic arsenal, if nothing else.

And when the Nottingham singer connects, as she does on Black Thorn – a swing blues blessed with languid vibraphone – or the show-stopping Uncomfortable Silence, everything fizzes.

As an album, it’s by no means perfect. There are 14 hefty songs on offer, making this an obligation that does not reward the easily distracted, and some of them don’t escape their musical roots, or fight hard enough for attention, or get to the point quickly enough to justify their inclusion. But she’s on the right lines.

A more focussed collection next time, one that doesn’t stint on the weirdness and still delivers the emotive wallop, and Duncan could easily knock all the other showboating sirens off their metallic toy poodles.

I am surprised and disappointed that this album is not getting more attention. Not sure how record companies work but surely they should be putting more effort behind this girl. Give it a listen. Try it on iTunes, where you get longer samples and them come back and buy it from Amazon where it's cheaper. This is a class album.

I was totally blown away by this debut album. Comparisons to Adele, Winehouse etc are unfortunately bound to be made now when any new female artist with a modicum of soul appears, and cliches such as "real", "authentic", or "genuine" are often used in an attempt to distinguish them from generic, mass produced products. So when an artist who actually lives up to such descriptions arrives, you need new words. Not only is Ms Duncan possessed of a truly incredible voice, but she also plays beautiful piano, apparently writes all her own material (words and music) and on this album is backed by some superb musicians. The production is immaculate, there are no digital enhancements here, no plastic drum sounds, just real old fashioned instruments so that the sound feels "live". Her basic style might be described as soulful, but you cannot easily pigeonhole her into a particular genre, the variety of styles and influences on this collection of songs ranges from straight ahead blues on Black Thorn to neo classical on Old Rock. There are beautiful ballads such as Uncomfortable Silence and Flower, as well as angry hard hitting rants like Pick Me Up Bar and She Done Died. The themes are quite dark, encompassing loneliness, heartbreak and despair, but the over arching feeling you take way after listening to the whole album is that this person has lived every moment of every song for real. In the short time I have had the album I'm finding that with every play I'm hearing something new, and there are some surprising little musical idiosyncrasies tucked away in several of the songs, the kind of thing Pink Floyd and the Beatles used to do, and which once you've heard them, you just can't wait to come up next time - so clever stuff as well as heartfelt. Top notch!

Having heard Natalie perform a few short years ago in her home town (Nottingham), it was obvious to all an album deal would surely come. Her amazing vocals alone would have done the trick. But this album not only showcases her great soulful voice, it reveals a talent for composition that draws upon soul / gospel / jazz roots, and then adds a few musical suprises of her own into the mix. Those who saw her debut on Jools Holland will know what I mean.

This is not your standard r & b, soul singer. This is different. Recommended.

Stunning debut album from the very talented Natalie Duncan. I had the privilege of seeing her live recently in a very intimate setting and it was honestly one of the best live performances I have ever seen. I recommend this album to anyone. It is authentic, soulful and has a real live instrument sound - a rare feat these days. It is also full of great songs, real life experiences and great lyrics.

Cant stop playing this - its blimmin brilliant. So surprised that shes not better known!? She has a really beautiful voice and considering she writes all her own stuff and plays piano is worthy of more recognition.

I am so looking forward to watching Natalie Duncan's career unfold. What a voice, what a songwriter.
The power of Ronnie Spector, the depth of Nina Simone.

So many of the songs here are absolutely stunning.
If this album doesn't knock your socks off, your socks are probably broken.
