New York- based Australian Jazz vocalist and award-winning young composer Natalie Dietz is visiting Sydney for a rare Australian performance.
“Her arrival to the United States has been met with fast acclaim..Natalie’s vocal prowess is equally matched in her skills as a young composer”
– Hot House Jazz Guide, November 2016
Natalie Dietz has made an striking impression on both the US and international jazz scene in a short time, impressing both audiences and critics alike with her trademark warm, ethereal voice and composing abilities.
She studied at the distinguished jazz vocal program at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, where she honed her skills in voice and composition. Since graduating in 2009 with a Bachelor of Music Natalie has toured Australia, New Zealand and parts of the US east coast to critical acclaim.
On relocating to the United States to complete a Master of Music at New England Conservatory in 2014, her original music has attracted international attention. In February 2016 she was a national US winner of ASCAP’s 2016 Herb Alpert Young Jazz Composer Award, presented at New York’s Lincoln Center.
Natalie will be performing an exciting set of new music accompanied by a stellar band of Australian instrumentalists. An evening not to be missed!
“Dietz’s graceful and expressive vocals rove and shimmer alongside her band’s creative and delicate partnership”
– Boston Concert Reviews, December 2016
“In the clotted deluge of jazz vocals, Dietz’s offering floats to the top by virtue of its light touch and grace”
– All About Jazz (USA) – 4/5 STARS
“Dietz’s music is delicately fragrant and atmospheric, a new brand of jazz perfume, wafting and seeping into one’s consciousness… a new form of jazz poetry. Her own. And her voice is hypnotic”
