Natalie Walker

Electronic textures, intimate revelations – that’s the fundamental formula of Natalie Walker’s evocative, elemental, bluntly emotional new album, Spark (Dorado Records). Spark finds the Indiana-born, Colorado-based singer-songwriter, whose prior work has been heard on Grey’s Anatomy, Ugly Betty, Bones, 90210, Smallville and Entourage, among other places, hitting a new creative plateau. With her richly expressive vocals floating in elegant, spacious instrumental settings, Walker explores powerfully personal territory on tracks like the reflective “I Found You,” the questing “Sunday Afternoon,” the gorgeous life lesson “Mars” and the delicate first single, “Uptight.” She also shows her adventurous side, feeling the rush of a humid Brooklyn night in the sensuous “Cool Kids” and diving headfirst into desire on the swooning “Against the Wall.”
