Natalie Lurie Releases Debut Single; Announces EP
February 5, 2016 (Nashville, TN) — Out today, Nashville songwriter Natalie Lurie has released her debut single, “No Mercy In The Night.” The track is available at all digital outlets and is the first single from her upcoming EP, No Mercy In The Night, due out March 25. Nashville music blog East of 8th premiered the single saying, “The emotive title track, “No Mercy In The Night,” beautifully showcases Lurie’s celestial vocals against shimmering harp-flavored indie pop.”
Natalie’s fascination with the harp began at age 7 when she spotted the instrument in a music shop. She sat down and began strumming until the shop owner finally asked she and her family to leave because the store was closing. Natalie’s harp studies have taken her across the globe. During her senior year of high school she attended the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance. After that, she studied privately in France and Switzerland, before returning to the US where she completed her undergraduate work under renowned harpist Susann McDonald at Indiana University.
Though she is classically trained, Natalie has always held an interest in expanding the harp beyond its traditional classical genre. Before moving to Nashville to pursue songwriting and performing, she spent time in Muscle Shoals, AL working with original session musicians from the 1960s. After releasing No Mercy In The Night this spring, she will move to London to pursue a Master of Arts in Harp Performance at the Royal Academy of Music.
